You might have read (or seen) that pastel pink is the new ‘it’ colour. In fact, the gods of colour and of fashion (read: Pantone and Prada) confirmed it themselves. And since then, we’ve seen it everywhere; from linen to phone cases, street to runway, and even – you guessed it – active wear.
You should be well versed on how to style the trend, but if you’re in need of some wardrobe additions or you still think pink should be saved for ballet and babies, read on. Here are 11 of our favourite pieces that prove blush is the new black.
Pastel pink: our editor’s top picks for the trend
1. The Hat
2. The Sneaker
Nothing says chic like THEY’s Two-Tone Sneaker. Made with Nappa leather, hand sewn and hand painted, they’re the must-have sneaker of the decade. Plus, they didn’t skimp on comfort when they infused them with style; they are built with well-padded ankles and arch support. In other words, they were designed to be lived in, which is just what we plan to do.
This style is launching soon. Keep an eye out here.
3. The Sock
For a peep of pastel above your sneakers, pick up a pair of Falke ribbed-knit socks. Fashion doesn’t have to come at the expense of comfort and never has this felt more true than when strutting your stuff in these.
4. The Backpack
This Italian leather backpack by Mansur Gavriel is every fit girl’s dream companion. It’s big enough for your workout essentials but small enough to keep you looking smart and stylish for the rest of the day, no back pain required.
5. The Bikini
Triangl’s Delilah bikini in Fiore Rosa is a must this summer. Not only is it cut to perfection, it’s feminine and flattering too. Made with neoprene, it’s the perfect sporty but sexy bikini. Available in both regular and cheeky bottoms, we’re a fan of the skimpier choice for its retro feel.
6. The Sweater
7. The Track Pant
Go bold with these blush track pants, courtesy of Alexander McQueen. With an elastic drawstring waist and sporty panelled detailing, they get the sports luxe tick of approval.
8. The Sports Bra
Nobody puts baby (pink) in the corner, so you’ll be centre stage in the Olympia X Bra. Designed for barre and ballet, it’s a supportive yet stylish sports bra built to move with ease. Pair it with the matching Silo Cropped Legging for the ultimate studio-style.
9. The Jacket
This reversible bomber by Puma nods to the edgy princess within us all. It’s part of the latest collaboration, with social queen, Carroll Lyn (aka Careaux) that’s full of floral prints and pastel pinks. It’s a classic style with a feminine twist and we want it on our shoulders.
10. The Trainer
Look pretty in pink in the weights room in the Adidas ZX Flux ADV Verve W. We love the subtle, olive green, woven texture for its added street style.
