Style Advice of the Week

I’ve never been that girl in love with the whole “pretty in pink” idea, but this year the runways have come up with one of the most unlikely and innovative trends of the season by including softer undertones of this color into their most wanted pieces. Making their way from the runways of Topshop and Carven into our wardrobes, the entrancing cotton candy-like shades have captivated all of us this fall.

Designers have suggested us to contradict with the dark tones trend and bright up our winters with their rosy pencil skirts and light pink coats. We all know that a pink combination may seem exaggerated, but combining glowing textures with nude palettes is the key. Jumping aboard the pink trend, today’s Fashionista shows us how to wear the pink powder by opting for sweet, sugary pastel tones.

She matches up a bubblegum and pearl color combination by layering up a dress and a sweater set to a leather jacket. Sometimes it’s hard to find a set of a knitted top attached to a skirt, which is why you can opt to copy the set by layering up a pink fluffy sweater like this from Chicwish’s collection to a simple silk dress. Prepare yourself for the colder temperatures and also shimmer this look like today’s Fashionista by adding a nude palette leather jacket to the set combination.

Looking for something more than leather? Opt for a blazer or get one of the most wanted pastel pink coats from Topshop’s winter collection. From over sized to stretch, the pink coat has become a must-have for every winter’s wardrobe. This coat paired with a pair of tights or your favorite knee-high socks will give you the rosy hue like this Fashionista.

This week, break the rules of the fall and winter color trends with your favorite combinations of the new pink posh palette. Don’t know where to start?
