Trend report: 5 Shades of Pink

HOT pink at María Clé Leal “Fragile” show

PINK is the word on everyone’s lips. So with a nod to the Pink Ladies. It’s time to think pink. We are seeing the catwalks hotting up with a mixture purples and reds and YES hot pinks. About time too! But don’t panic, if pink isn’t your thing, there are options to play around with the palette a bit. Even opt for a lighter and less intense shade. You could even mix those more vibrant colours with more neutral tones to make for a very beautiful duet of colour.

Last night the MyDress team were at Fashion Week in Amsterdam. We were lucky enough to attend María Clé Leal “Fragile” show and as the scene was set, the atmosphere tensed and a single ballet dancer dressed in flesh coloured fabric, drapped around her fragile body as she weaved mystically through the models. We couldn’t even imagine before hand just how blown away we would become. The stunning array of pink. So having come away from the show totally inspired, we decided it was about time (and bang on trend) to spread the word about just how darn great pink actually is.

So let’s walk through all the glorious shades of pink…

Powder Pink

Whistles 2015

Powder Pink is the perfect choice to take you into winter. Soft, elegant and fresh. We are loving this outfit by Whistles, it just shows that when done right there is no such thing as too much pink! Take a look at our selection of pink dresses to brighten up your wardrobe.

Living Coral

If your not really a pretty in pink kinda girl, then this coral shade is the perfect compromise. We are loving the idea of bringing coral into the Autumn/Winter and why not…it matches those peachy winter cheeks perfectly and sets of a fairer winter skin tone.

Beetroot Purple

Anna Sui Fall 2015

Another fantastic option is this gorgeous beetroot purple. Rich in colour and intense in style. This is a great alternative to black, less harsh and it looks great when teamed with leather.

 Pink Lavendar

Jonathan Simkhai 2015

Now for that soft and totally on trend shade of lavendar. What we love about this outfit is that although the colour is light and fresh, the outfit itself has a quirky edge.

Bleached Apricot

This is a colour that can be teamed with other shades from the same palette of gorgeous coraly (if that isn’t a word it should be!) goodness with ease. Opt for shades that are lighter in colour and then choose a statement piece in this striking coral colour to make an impact.

Now for the line up

Wimbledon Street Style: This time courtside!

Wimbledon Style

It’s that time of year again, Wimbledon is here. Tennis enthusiast or not, there is a style to suit everyone. When we think of Wimbledon we think of punnets of strawberries and Pimms galore! (Oh and of course the tennis itself). So, the atmosphere is set, the tennis pros are at the ready, but there is still one thing we have to decide…what to wear courtside?! 

Whether you are a hardcore tennis fan or perhaps you are going simply for the social aspect (and that’s fine too!). We have put together three simple looks inspired by Wimbledon street style. 

Wimbledon Street Style?

What is Wimbledon street style? Ok, so we keep hearing this term being thrown around in magazines, the local papers, twitter and now it is about time we thought about what exactly that means…

Strawberries and Cream

This look is girly, cute and importantly playful. Choose classic styles and elegant cuts that frame your body type perfectly. A soft palette, such as peaches, blush tones and soft corals, gives a very girly feel to the outfit but will also suit fair and darker skin tones. Add a little zing to your outfit with cute accessories that are subtle but striking. Think understated glamour. Another option for this look, is to draw from vintage inpiration, so still very feminine but more quirky prints and florals. If you do take the retro route then we suggest a bit of red lippy to set of your look.

Strawberries and Cream coutside look

Chiffon Lace Dress Now £ 16.00 Metallic Shoes £130.00 Rose Gold Plated Ring £29.99 Hair Crown £8.00

Tennis Whites

Fresh, minimalist and just damn cool. This look is easy to achieve and will keep you cool courtside and we mean literally (as white reflects the sun) and also the other way. Keep the base of your outfit white (a sort of canvas to build on) and then add flashes of metallic, so you will be twinkling in the sunshine courtside.

Bubbles Darling

This look is old school glamour with a good dash of fun! Go for chic and elegant pieces and funk it up with accessories. Skater style dresses and sleeveless are a good option for this look. It keeps the look simple and then you can build easily from there. So once you have chosen your dress then choose your accessories carefully, this is when it could be fun to think about adding other textures to your look. Remember though, if your dress has a loud print then focus on the material and colour of the accessories and vise versa.
