SS16’s top colour trend and how to wear it

It’s officially spring, which means it is time to pack away your woolly knits, big boots and fluffy mittens and embrace your spring/summer wardrobe.

Trends on the catwalk include bright prints, beautiful pastel shades and bold accessories. But there is one colour which is being seen on models more than any other this season, and that hue is pink.

Fuchsia, coral pink, hot magenta, crimson or ruby. Pink styles have been seen on the likes of Jennifer Hawkins, Katie Holmes and Mercedes Mason, with garments designed by Victoria Beckham, Hilary MacMillan and Moschino.

But how can you make sure you’re wearing this season’s top colour trend in style? Here we take a look at best ways to wear pink this SS16.

Rose-tinted beauty

Before we even come to clothing, adding shades of pink to your makeup palette is one way to embrace this colour trend.

It has long been said that only a small percentile of people are able to pull off pink eyeshadow. A lot of the time, pale pink and blue eyeshadows take us back to our young teens, and experimenting with any type of makeup we could get our hands on. But gone are those days, now we can play around with pink makeup in a more sophisticated manner.

Pretty pink can come in every shade under the sun when it comes to lipstick, but it’s important to remember to match the colour to your skin tone, making sure that it accentuates your features, rather than making you looked washed out or pale.

Really pale lipsticks complement those with a darker skin tone, whereas dark or brighter shades of pink suit those with a paler complexion.

If you want to make a bold statement, why not try our Flirty Pink Lipstick and team it with light pink blush on your cheeks for a classy evening look.

Pastel pink

Pastel baby pink is a common shade of this colour trend, especially during the Easter season. Natural, pale shades of pink often pair well with other pastel colours such as lemon, mint and dusty blue but also work well with black, cream and white.

If you’re wanting to go for a soft and feminine look, pastel hues such as baby pink are a great idea, especially when teamed with natural makeup.

If the girly pink look just isn’t your thing, wearing pastel pink can be the subtlest of details. Add a small pink crossbody bag to a plain outfit, or perhaps a statement scarf to brighten up and add colour to your look.

Pastel shades of pink are also becoming an increasingly popular choice for big occasion dresses such as prom dresses and bridesmaid gowns.

Model Jourdan Dunn wore a stunning suede pale pink crop dress at the Balmain presentation at Paris Fashion Week earlier this month. The dress featured criss-cord running down the dress which nipped in at the waist with a thick band. The pastel pink dress was them teamed suitably with a pair of over the knee, nude suede boots which elongated the model’s legs.

Bright jewels

Jewellery plays a massive part in really pulling together an outfit and adding the final touches. While necklaces, bracelets and rings often come in shades of silver and gold, this season pink gems, bright jewels and flower brooches have become the perfect fashion accessory.

Pink sapphire, dark pink garnet and rose quartz are all types of jewels which are of pink colour and will look great if you want to embrace the top colour trend this SS16.

For those who dare to be bold, a statement jewel necklace can be the focal point of an outfit, and with many floral jewel designs circulating this month, these chunky pieces are dotted all over the highstreet.

Our Pink Enhanced Quartzite Necklace will add a bit of red carpet glamour to an outfit, whether it be to jazz up a blouse or tee during the day, or to add some sparkle to that little black dress.
