When the flowers start to bloom and you can slowly retreat from your faux fur duvet, you know that Spring has finally arrived. It’s time to put some highlights in your hair, ditch the flannelette pajamas and step into the season’s most blush-worthy trend: pretty in pink. Dusty, rosy, salmon and peachy pinks will have you swooning this Spring, so it’s time to get your baby doll look on.
EXPERIMENT WITH SHADES
50 shades of...pink? Forget boring monochrome colour palettes and inject some Spring flair into your wardrobe. Play with different pieces and hues to make a memorable look or make a subtle statement.
Lighter and darker shades will create a beautiful contrast for a soft look, or go bold with one standout shade from head to toe. Pink coats, skirts and bralettes make the ultimate layering pieces.
Don’t restrict the wheel of pink to just your wardrobe. Create a naturally flushed look with shades of pink on the eyes, lips, cheeks and nails. Rose golds, taupes and beiges blended across the eye will create a soft and feminine look.
To look naturally flushed, pinch your cheek, observe what shade of pink it goes and get a rosy blush to match. Dust lightly (emphasis on lightly!) over the apple of your cheeks in an upwards-sweeping motion and the colour will work with your natural skin tone.
Lips can be bold and striking or a subtler peachy shade; this one’s totally up to you! As for the nails? Keep them simple and chic with a soft pink hue.
DON’T FORGET TO ACCESSORISE
An outfit is never complete without your favourite accessory. Grab a pink tote and make your look work for a day at the office. If you’re out and about, pop on those mirrored pink shades for an injection of ultimate coolness. To take it to night, opt for a simple or striking pink clutch.
