It’s worth noting that, of all the colors that exist, pink is probably the most divisive—many women swear they wouldn’t touch it with a 10-foot-pole—so we’ve been pleasantly surprised to see so many ladies giving it a test run this season. So, how can you get away with wearing a color typically associated with princesses, ballerinas, and 4-year-old girls? Here are 5 tips on how to wear pastel pink right (and still look like a stylish adult):
- Stay away from anything too poufy. If you’re wearing a pastel pink skirt or dress, keep the silhouette sleek and tailored, so as not to look like you’re on your way to a dance recital.
- Keep the rest of your outfit neutral. A pink piece is at its most modern when paired with black, white and gray staples.
- Going for a pink winter coat? Make it oversized. A super-fitted pink winter coat could look dated and prissy, while a louche slouchy version looks invariably cool and of-the-moment. Just make sure to keep materials high-quality—think wool, mohair, or cashmere, as opposed to nylon, rayon, or polyester.
For my look I chose to pair this pink leather jacket from Zara, with a white tunic as not to distract from the jacket. I kept it really simple on the bottom, adding distressed denim and a nude shoe for an instant outfit upgrade!
