With spring just around the corner (sense the sarcasm here?), we’ve started looking at what’s set to be on trend in the following months in a broader sense. Some of you might have read our post on the 5 spring/summer trends to start wearing now, but if not, you can give it a read here. That should give you a general idea of the must-have spring trends, if you’re feeling curious, but this blog post will be dedicated to a new love of ours and a very specific spring trend: all things pink.
Yes, that’s right, we are convertees to pink clothing. It’s not to say that we ever hated the colour pink, but we have always previously tended to stick to the basic monochromes, grays and sometimes blues. It’s only now that we’ve decided to experiment with more colourful dressing that we’ve developed a huge love for everything pink, from shirts, to skirts, to shoes. As well as giving a much needed pop of colour on our feed after a long winter full of duller shades, pink is actually incredibly versatile, and can be paired with almost every other colour out there.
So of course, we thought it was only right to share our newfound love with you all, and pick out some of our favourite pink pieces from all the big brands.
Ivy Embriodered Collar Detail Shirt, Boohoo
We’ve always been fans of shirts, and this one is gorgeous, with its ruffle sleeves and embroidered collar. It would look amazing tucked into a pair of fitted trousers, or a midi-skirt.
‘Venice’ T-Shirt by Tee & Cake, Topshop
We’ve been waiting to get sick of the fake Gucci shirts, but it hasn’t happened yet. We love this pink take on the trend. You could style it up with a blazer and a pair of trousers, or keep things casual and tuck it into a pair of mom jeans.
Petite Alana Double Breasted Woven Co-Ord Blazer, Boohoo
Blazers, blazers, blazers. If there was ever one defining emerging trend of spring, blazers are that. We’re personally more blazer-skirt-combo fans, so we’d team this with a pink or white pencil skirt.
Petite light pink oriental print duster coat, River Island.
Kimonos and oriental print are not something we’ve previously been really hot on, but seeing how fellow bloggers have paired their pieces has completely changed our minds. We love how River Island has styled this coat, with jeans and a pair of simple heels. You could also team it with a pair of palazzo pants for more oomph.
Petite Lucia Lace Up Detail Suedette Mini Skirt, Boohoo
Anything that can be added to a skirt of this length to give it more detail is pretty much a deal-breaker for us, and we particularly love the unique tie-up detail on this Boohoo number. We’d wear this with a jumper and knee-high boots in the colder months, and transition into a tucked-in blouse and heeled sandals for when spring fully kicks in.
ASOS DESIGN ponte button front pencil skirt, ASOS
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for this past month, you’ll know that pencil skirts are set to be the next big thing when it comes to spring fashion. It’s hard for us to find pencil skirts that flatter our figure (not being the curviest of girls), which is why we like that the button detailing down the middle of this ASOS number is definitely its eye-catching feature.
Summer Checked Mini Kilt Skirt, Topshop
The great thing about checks is that they never seem to go out of trend, so if you’ve got anything tartan in your wardrobe, you’re pretty much safe to keep it in there for at least another three years. This skirt is casual chic at its best- we’d pair it with a sporty tee and some trainers for an everyday look.
Ruffle Tie Mini Skirt, Topshop
Topshop is killing it with their skirt range at the moment. This was another that caught our eye- it’s light, floaty, and the ruffle details give it that perfect girly touch. It’s definitely one for the warmer weather, though!
Belted Peg Trousers, Topshop
Everyone should know by now how trouser-obsessed we are at the moment. Funnily enough, you once would have never caught us in anything other than a pair of jeans or a skirt, but nowadays we can’t live without them! These belted peg trousers are exactly our style- we’d most likely add another pop of colour to the look with a red tee and pumps.
Pink wide fit buckle block heel shoe boots, River Island
Hot pink might not be as ‘in’ as it was a few months back, but you’ll still notice the occasional fashion piece in this shade rolling out in the new season. We think these heels could add just the right amount of interest to an otherwise basic outfit. We can imagine them teamed with a white midi-dress and a bag of the same shade.
Key Trim Loafers, Topshop
We’re sure there’s not a lot of people out there who can disagree with the statement: loafers are just the best. You can wear them with almost everything, from a casual jeans day, to a smart day at work, and these pink key trim beauties are ideal for styling with almost everything. We’d most likely wear them with a pair of tailored trousers and a shirt.
Hopefully this list gave you plenty of inspiration and has left you desperate to add more pink to your wardrobe! Do you have a particular favourite colour this spring? Let us know in the comments below!
