THINK PINK FOR SUMMER
The runway Gods have spoken: Pink is officially the color of the season. In fact, we can’t remember the last time designers were this in accord on a favored hue – and it wasn’t just one particular shade. Shocking neon layers at DKNY, coral-tinged carnation sweatshirts by Alexander Wang, and a hot pink trench courtesy of Michael Kors are just a few of the lust-worthy iterations that paraded their way down the SS17 runways. Styled loud and proud or devilishly delicate, the overall statement was unanimous: Fashion’s future is unabashedly feminine – and we couldn’t be more excited to jump on these latest fashion trends. Here are some of our favorite pink picks and a few tips and tricks for taking the trend to the streets or the beach:
ICE, ICE BABY
Proof that sometimes less is decidedly more, this icy pink dress is an easy way to ease your way into the hue. The slip dress silhouette is sexy in its simplicity while exuding an innocence that’s just right for summer. Enhance the sweetness with a loose fishtail braid and metallic espadrilles.
LINE IT UP
If you’re not sure you can pull off a full-wattage pink ensemble, temper the effect with bold contrast stripes. This top incorporates another of our favorite latest fashion trends: Off-the- shoulder sleeves. We love how these ones are set low to act almost more as arm cuffs. Offset the preppy vibe of the waffle knit with distressed denim shorts and white lace-ups – but give a nod to the pink with a matching knotted scarf headband.
SOFT KISS OF COLOR
It’s hard not to have a rosy outlook in the soft hues of this romantic dress. Its modest knee-length silhouette gets a youthful boost from sheer embroidery details, side cutouts, and a sexy open back replete with ties and tassels. The perfect number for a brunch-to beach-to bars kind of day, we love it with a platform wedge and easy top knot.
HEAD TO TONAL
Hot pink is a surefire way to add an exclamation point to your look. For extra drama, go head to toe in pinks, mixing and matching shades to keep things contemporary. A blush-colored crop top and fuchsia sandals teamed with this floaty skirt make a chic statement for any warm weather occasion.
SWITCH ON THE BRIGHTS
Saturated neon pumps up the volume of any look. The flat front design of these high-waist shorts lends itself to a myriad of styling options. A barely-there crochet halter top renders them ready for a sunset soiree while a tucked in button-up offers a more conservative, but equally editorial, silhouette. This style of top is sure to get you all the right attention and keep you up with the latest fashion trends!
