Several S/S 2014 lines—namely Preen, Burberry, Carven, Balmain, and Chanel—paraded down the runways in various blushing shades of powder pink.
I know what you’re thinking. “S/S 14? Aren’t you a little late? This is old news.” Far from it.
Although early adaptors picked up this trend months ago, the color has trickled down into a wider variety of brands and is now up for grabs no matter your budget.
Peep this Burberry coat. Cotton-candy pink isn’t just for spring/summer.
Wear the sugary sweet shade head-to-toe or pair soft pink accessories with juxtaposing pieces to soften an edgy look.
I wish I could personally say thank-you to the designers at Balmain, Isabel Marant, and Alexander Wang. Whether it’s bubblegum, cotton candy, or powder pink, there’s a shade for every skin tone.
Personally, I’m partial to the full pink look, complete with understated blushes, classic lipsticks, and light, flowery perfume. Oh, and don’t forget to add rose-gold jewelry. To die for.
Here’s what I’m wearing:
Top: T by Alexander Wang
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Hat: Yohji Yamamoto
Watch: Olivia Burton
Blush: NARS Final Cut Blush
Perfume: Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline L’Eau de Parfum
Dress: Alice + Olivia
Shoes: Ava & Aiden
Perfume: Miss Dior
Lipstick: Anna Sui Limited Lipstick, 03- Creamy Coral Pink
You can find pieces in these colors almost anywhere! If you’re dying to stock your wardrobe with powdery pink essentials but don’t want to break the bank, I would recommend looking at the Gap, J Crew, and the Nordstrom Rack—I just did a quick look online to verify, and there is a wide selection!
As always, please don’t buy any pieces from fast fashion retailers like H&M and Forever 21. These companies are bad for the industry, bad for the workers, bad for the environment, and ultimately bad for the consumer.
