It was International Women’s Day this month and no better time to be thankful for being female. So in the spirit of feminism, of being empowered to be who we are and wear what we want without judgement I wanted to dedicate this post to a colour I’ve been scared of but am reclaiming as my own – that is, pink.
IF YOU CUT ME I’D BLEED BLUE
As you probably know pink isn’t my go-to colour (my heart will always be blue) but lately I’m alllll over it. I usually avoid wearing pink for the very simple reason that I don’t want to look too ‘girly’. I feel so bad even saying that. Why is this considered an insult in this day and age? Why is being girly such a bad thing anyway?
RECLAIMING PINK IN THE NAME OF FASHION
This season’s pink is unapologetically girly and bright and strong and considered – all the adjectives we use to describe real women. Chanel inspires us with pink tweed, sugar sweet suits and pops of neon. At Dior whimsical blush has been taken to the next level with candy floss layers, while red and pink are pitched against each other like colour block heavyweights. Over at Balenciaga we’ll take all the ladylike pink bows and ruffles thank you and hands up to Longchamp for toughened sports luxe in all shades of pink inspired by Tokyo’s cherry blossoms.
Scroll down for major pink inspiration and my pick of THE perfect pink pieces for Spring, including splurge and budget friendly options. You’re welcome!
