Could Pink Be The Unexpected Colour For Fall?
Because we saw it all over fashion month. If you're ready to channel Molly Ringwood in "Pretty In Pink", take cues from these gloriously pink looks.| October 9, 2017
For the fashion pack, fall typically means the trading in of traditionally “bright” colours for rustier, warmer and darker ones. The always-favoured black and greys, varying shades of brown and even mustard and orange. Everyone loves the cosy, fuzzy feeling that comes with the changing leaves and sudden appearance of pumpkins here, there and everywhere, so there ain’t no harm in falling back – pun very much intended – on the colours that remind us of it.
But the fashion pack also likes to define seasonal norms. Good ol’ flipping of the proverbial bird to whoever says you can or cannot wear a certain thing because the seasons says so. It is always a parade of colours outside the shows at fashion week, whether we’re in New York, London, Milan or Paris. The one surprising colour we’ve been seeing quite a bit in the street style scene, sometimes top to toe? Pink. If you think about it, the continued preference for pink is hardly surprising. Millennial pink is the colour of the year. When it comes to cafes and restaurants, pink is instant crowd bait.
Pink does not necessarily equate to girly, though. Feminine, possibly, but not necessarily girly. Take Aymeline Valade in that floor sweeping pink coat and trouser combo above, for instance. She’s almost in top to toe pink, but does she look like she’s headed to a Hello Kitty convention? Nope. None of the ladies above do. It’s all about picking the right silhouette and colours.
