    Winter is officially OVER and it’s time to brighten up our wardrobes with a Spring injection. Pink might not seem like the easiest shade to wear, especially top-to-toe, but follow our simple guide and you’ll be working it into your current wardrobe with ease, in no time at all.

    If you’re looking to dip your toe into the trend, then accessorising with the blush hue is the styling choice for you. If shoes are your thing, stick to classic courts in light or popping shades, or sandals in candy colours. Earrings should be oversized – make a statement with fun tasselled styles. And scarves should be strictly neckerchief.

    Athleisure is the comfiest trend going and so easy to mix with your smart staples. Pair a laid-back sweat in soft pink with your favourite jeans and block heeled boots, for an easy way to take on both trends.

    This season’s pinky update comes in the form of an unlikely colour combo. Pink and red is the latest duo of hues. Follow in the footsteps of Valentino and Gucci, for this brave pairing.
