For this trend think candy canes, Lollipops, sugarplums, feminine shapes and a complete sugar explosion with the new colours for fall and winter fashion. It’s all about eye popping, being bold, bright and brave.
Miu Miu and Prada showcased the trend last year with over-sized coats, knee length dresses and encapsulated the feminine feel they wanted to dominate the fashion skyline for this season. Miu Miu went for fuschia and hot intense colouring whilst Prada took it in the other direction with much softer pastel pinks; for a sweet and soft luxurious finish.
For making this look you really need to focus on girl power, and not be scared to embrace the continuity of block colouring and layering. Taking inspiration from the collections, skater skirts are a must, teamed with polo shirt or blouse in a similar shade and then an over-sized cape or coat. New Look have some great sale pieces in at the moment, and January sales at River Island are worth checking out. Primark have also had a few pieces in at the moment that will be rocking the high street all year round. Shop the high street for some of the looks below.
When choosing any clothes for this trend, beware to not over-complicate the look. Tailoring has been kept minimal with clean lines for a sleek and smooth finish as not to clash with colour. A similar approach should be taken when accessorising; to really push the boat try a harsh contrasting colour for scarves/ bag and or shoes – shown in Prada’s collection was a royal blue that stood out against a very calm and neutral baby pink coat.
Now this look is one very bold, very bright and expresses pride in femininity; but you don’t need to be head to toe in pink if it’s not quite your thing. White and grey make for a neutral underlying colours – keep the lines simple a plain top and some capri trousers and overlay with a pink trench coat to achieve all the attributes of this look, just in a slightly subtler way.
Pink is definitely the colour to go this season, but in any range of hue that you would prefer.
