31/07/2015 • Mariel Choo
Contrary to your perception of how girlish and feminine pink might be, it acts as a timeless and versatile colour. The beauty of styling with pink, is the versatility that it can be paired with anything depending on the style you're going for, which can be implied through accents, prints or textures.
Need another reason to explore with pink this season? It plays right into the traditional spring/summer colour palette. With lighter hues ranging from pastel pink to blush pink, alongside lightweight fabrics and neutral tones, it is definitely a combination worth trying this season.
As pink has been seen widely in collections across the fashion spectrum, we’ve curated a selection of ways to style with pink. It’s time to embrace your newfound femininity at any time of the day.
The bigger the pink the better, make a statement with a pop of pink. Style the dress with any contrasting colours or add a visual of prints to give a bold element to the outfit. A great pink statement piece is highly wearable for many occasions and this dress by C/MEO COLLECTIVE adds as another versatile wardrobe addition.

A touch of pink adds personality into any ensemble, however pair them with more neutrals in order to let the pop of colour do all the talking. With accents as the statement, take a simpler approach to the rest of your ensemble. Pair it with the classic monochrome palette, to add timelessness and accessorize with gold to stay chic throughout the day.
When it comes to prints, we encourage on taking a more adventurous approach by infusing soft volumes of prints together. However, be sure to retain a sense of wearability by styling within the same colour palette. Style the ensemble with minimal yet classic accessories, to complete the look.

Create a full look with textures, as it adds depth and character to any ensemble. With textures in play, stick to neutrals and allow the depth of layering textures speak for itself. Texture is an important aspect in any good outfit, however too much of the same texture can be a fashion faux pas, avoid this by introducing different fabrics, weight and feel. Lastly, keep the accessories, as basic as possible to minimise over clashing of textures.
