La Vie En Rose

I oughta confess. The discovery that pink (trend alert#5) is one of Pantone’s choicest hues this season literally gave me the chills. Pink to me screams über girly, and such a contrast to the somber banking environs that steering clear of this shade seemed a brill idea all along.

That is until the fashion gods decided otherwise. Historically, I’ve restricted pink to either add a pop or in relatively palatable softer baby pink tones contrasted by bolder, darker…. and safer colours like black.

One thing about this colour is how polarizing everyone’s opinion is towards it. You either love it or hate it. It’s not like a brown or a green.. you simply can’t go “yeah whatevs” when it comes to pink.

Anyways, cautiously optimistic I hopped on to the pink bandwagon to dip my toe. Wellll.. that’s not really accurate. I dipped myself from head to toe in PINK only to be pleasantly surprised. Contrary to my imagination of looking like a Barbie personified, I actually wanted to run to the nearest iPhone for some pics 😉

Check out the pics below and decide for yourself.

PS: *For trend alert #1 & #2 refer to the earlier post titled “Oppan Gingham Style” & for trend alert #3 & #4, check out the post titled “Look at the bright side”. The intent is to touch upon SS’17’s hottest trends over the course of couple of weeks.
