Hello beauties! I hope everyone is having a fabulous bank holiday Monday. It's been yet another busy week for me! I've barely been in uni but I always end up having loads of stuff to do, and I've got some exciting things coming up for later in the year so watch this space. Anyway, I'm still looking into how to make the transition into Spring/Summer as part of my #DashOfcColour project (get yourself on Instagram). One thing that I have noticed in particular, mainly in magazines, catwalks and in the high street, is that Spring/Summer 2014 is all about being bold!
Everywhere in the fashion world is being dominated by dazzling prints, daring cuts, jewellery-encrusted clothing, and most importantly pink, pink, PINK! Burberry, Prada, Stella McCartney and Victoria Beckham have all gone crazy for the Barbie girl colour. I know some girls may say that they hate how girlish pink looks, but I completely disagree. I think pink has such great potential as it comes in hundreds of different tones and shades which can suit any fashionistas complexion. Plus, the way you choose to wear it can vary its impact. Hot pink can look sexy, whereas a baby pink might give you a relaxed, cute vibe.
Now the trend for pink this summer is colour-blocking. Most items are worn as a 'hero-piece' such as this dress from Ark. This is a good option is you are feeling brave and are a lover of the pink. However, my advice is to keep the accessories to a minimum, because colour-blocking can be somewhat empowering, but you don't want to end up looking like you've had a circus thrown up on you. If you're a bit scared of bright colours, and feel more comfortable in neutrals, just add a bit of dash of colour to your outfit. This could be as simple as a fuchsia lipstick or vibrant nail varnish (see my last post). But most importantly, keep a twist of your own style in there. I adore anything kitschy or oozing with cuteness, so I've worked the pink trend with a collared dress.
