Pink. It’s a statement colour, and one that divides opinion. For some its perfection, for others its too girly, a reaction against social stereotypes perhaps? Me, I love a splash of pink. Done in the right way it adds that little bit of colour and femininity to an outfit that can really make a difference. Mix it with neutrals and black and you’ve got an outfit that is well clear of that girly pigeon-hole.
I am perhaps a little guilty of an overly zealous love affair with black, but I also love introducing colour to my outfits and this is one of my favourite ones to throw in there. Today was one of those days. Mixing this ultra feminine pink, 1950’s cut skirt with the harshness of a black cropped jumper and ankle boots creates a real contrast, and it just works.
I added a camel oversized coat to this. I am loving mixing neutral hues currently. These are two of my favourite neutrals (yes, I am counting pink here), and they just work fantastically well together. Whether on their own, or, as I’ve done here, with the edginess of black thrown in.
