Think Pink

Pink seems to be one of the top colours of this spring for bloggers and celebrities everywhere. The colour isn’t overwhelming (unless you want it to be of course), there is a variety of shades available to suit different skin types and you can incorporate it to your wardrobe with accessories, everyday knitwear, light jackets, coats as well as plain or patterned bottoms. The possibilities are endless.

The title of this blog post was inspired by a movie Funny face (1957) starring Audrey Hepburn, where a magazine editor Maggie decides the latest issue is boring and declares every woman (except her) shall wear pink. Check out stills and lyrics to Maggie’s song about pink:

I put together a few of my favourite items and looks from street style and runways and recreated the look with a little help of affordable high-street brands. Here’s the result:

I love the long flowing skirt that Jessica Alba paired with oversized sunglasses, cropped black turtleneck and delicate sandals – she looks like a 21st century Disney princess, doesn’t she? In case you were wondering, she wore this to to Ralph Lauren’s runway show at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in September.

I wonder if something like this is appropriate for a guest to wear at a summer wedding (with a sleeveless version of the top, obviously). What do you think?
More about summer wedding outfits is coming soon!

Dark Orange

Today, I saw the prettiest wool blazer from Zara in dark orange. I loved the shape and cut immediately, but wasn’t convinced about the colour, so I turned to Polyvore for ideas. Here is the outcome:

Every look shown here is casual, appropriate for everyday use and each of the tops can be easily replaced with a version of it to fit your personal style (for example: white lace top replaced with crisp white shirt or basic white tee etc.). I chose dark washed jeans as main piece of clothing (besides the blazer), because I find complementary colours make a really good basis for an outfit. I paired this with navy flats for spring and tan wedge sandals for colder summer nights. From here on it was just a matter of trying out what looks good and what doesn’t.

How would you style it?

Lori suggested pairing this jacket with white jeans cut at the ankle and brown sandals (and brown hair hehe). What a great idea! Here’s my take:
