What to wear on the weekends?
As my “pink renaissance” continues – my delicious obsession with pink interiors only goes from strength to strength – it has now taken a new direction, into my weekend wardrobe.
In hindsight, I was never going to avoid a pink infusion.
The right pink acts as a neutral in many interiors and can do the same in our wardrobes. Here’s the thing, I won’t be doing a full-on pink Mrs Maisel, as fabulous as she is, but rather a delicate accent of pink here and there.
For two reasons,
Wearing head-to-toe pink is probably not in my repertoire; too strong, too much and too ott for me. I won’t spend a great deal for an accent colour that I could grow tired of very quickly. I am not suggesting for a moment this love affair with pink is not serious, but you never know. Interiors are one thing, fashion another.
My imagination is an entirely different story – I would be dressed in French haute couture in the barest shade. This last week in Paris there have been some of the most beautiful creations shown and many of them pink.
Then there are the shades of pink.
I like them all but in particular, I love the ballerina shades of soft pink. They are softly flattering to most skin tones and can be worn as a neutral with black. They make a subtle change from the creams and greys.
For the weekend wardrobe, the pink is a great edition.
Who knows? We might even start wearing it all day, every day. xv
