Try The Pale Pink Trend From The Spring/Summer 2015 Runways


With the sweet, feminine light pink colour trend dominating the runways for Spring/Summer 2015, the soft pastel hue made a splash on the catwalk. At Oscar de la Renta, a flowing blush pink frock with an asymmetrical hem was brightened with a pop of white detail. Japanese-born designer Tadashi Shoji showcased a ballet slipper pink A-line dress with cap sleeves and dainty lace. Meanwhile, Jill Stuart displayed a tea rose pink wrap dress with an elegant belt and prim long sleeves.

For fashionistas who wish to add light colour to a neutral ensemble or embrace delicate shades, Spring/Summer 2015’s pale pinks are ladylike yet luxurious. Here are a few fashion-forward ways to bring this runway approved colour trend from the catwalk to the sidewalk this season.

Casual Chic

While it’s easy to slip into a grey slouchy T-shirt and black skinny jeans on your day off, a pop of pink can instantly illuminate a dull, dreary casual look. Update your favourite dark wash denim with a pale pink off-the-shoulder blouse, or slip into a pair of rosy, pointy toed flats for a quick hint of springtime colour.


Although pale pinks may seem overwhelmingly feminine for the office, the contrasting effect against darker shades still means business. Bring your lacklustre work wear into the warmer months, by accessorizing a baby pink sheath dress with a black open collar blazer. For chic yet professional style, pair a pink wrap dress or midi skirt with a neutral cardigan.


For the after hours, blush pink shades can be surprisingly sultry. Accessorize a blush pink skater dress with a silver statement necklace, lace-up gladiator sandals and a metallic envelope clutch. The innocent shade allows shorter, playful hems to appear charming, instead of overtly racy. Lace frocks and sheer blouses in barely-there shades of pink also lend a stylish, flirty element to evening looks.
