How to Wear Pink This Spring

Here’s everything you need to know about how to wear pink this season.

In fashion trends tend to come and go quicker than the weather changes. And while the colour pink underwent a huge revival a few seasons ago now, much to our delight, the uplifting shade isn’t going anywhere any time soon.

At the recent New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks, the streets were awash with all shades of pink. From dusky delicate, rose hues to show-stopping electric pinks, the fun and joyful shade is definitely one of the colours to be seen in this season. Here are our favourites tips on how to wear pink this spring.

WEAR IT FROM HEAD TO TOE

If you’re wanting to turn heads and stop traffic with your spring wardrobe, nothing gets the job done quite like a head-to-toe pink outfit. 

Embrace tonal dressing this season by pairing hot pink shades with soft blush hues to create a look that’s street style worthy.

DRESS IT DOWN

While pink is undoubtedly a pretty colour, gone are the days where wearing pink had to equate to an ultra-feminine look. However, if you’re still wary of the colour’s former reputation as a girly shade there are easy ways to dress pink down and give it a modern edge.

Try pairing bright pops of pink with a touch of denim or leather; team your all-pink ensemble with a pair of chunky combat boots or Dad sneakers; or try investing in menswear-inspired silhouettes in various shades of pink.

Accessories are the finishing touch on any look and adding a statement handbag and jewellery is another way to give your head-to-toe pink ensemble a point of difference.

The Dior Spring/Summer 2020 Collection

With New York, London and Milan Fashion weeks done and dusted for another year, Christian Dior’s show marks the beginning of Paris Fashion Week. For the Dior Spring/Summer 2020 runway show, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri enlisted the assistance of Coloco, a Paris-based environmental design collective, which Chiuri has turned to for inspiration.

With the fashion world’s impact on the environment increasingly under scrutiny, with the help of Coloco, models were paraded through a grove of 164 trees. While Chiuri had initially planned to hold the show in one of Coloco’s urban gardens, it wasn’t meant to be and instead the trees that formed the backdrop of the show will be used in sustainability projects throughout Paris. 

As for the clothes, it was Catherine Dior, Christian Dior’s sister, who became the muse for Chiuri’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection. Catherine was one of the first women in France to hold a professional licence for wholesale floristry. 

Muse for the clothes on the catwalk was Catherine Dior, the designer’s sister, a member of the resistance and a devoted plantswoman who later became one of the first women in France to hold a professional licence for wholesale floristry. Within the collection, Dior’s passion for flora came to life with intricated floral detailing and the botanical prints of 17th-century botanist Maria Sybilla Merian.
