Now I’m not one to follow trends, but every so often something comes around that fits into my personal style like a glove. In 2014 it was dip-dyed hair and patterned fabrics. In 2015 it was sleeveless waistcoats and fashion sneakers. This year – in 2016 – it takes the form of a colour palette. Put simply: trending colours in style and interior. Never in my life would I imagine that palette would include pink.
Yes I have finally succumb to pink. Growing up I’ve always favoured darker colours and shades, so you can maybe understand my aversion. However SS16 has seen pink come back…with an attitude. Dusky, darker pinks are popping up all over the place. Some have underlying hints of purple, others peach. And I for one love it. This is pink, but not as we know it.
My Spring Colour Palette
Now that we’re over the initial shock of me wearing pink, let’s talk about some the colours I’m loving right now, because it’s not all about the p. Some of the colours I’m loving have carried over from Winter, but the majority are Spring shades. It’s also worth mentioning that I love pairing a lot of these colours together, as they compliment each other pretty well. Anyway, enough chit-chat, let’s look at the colours:
- Cream | Antipodes Cleanser*
- Pale peach | Premium Magazine #5
- Grey | Comme des Garcon Play t-shirt
- Blue-grey | Ohgigue iPhone Case
- And of course, dusky pink | COS Classic t-shirt
So the big question here is: why does any of this matter? Of course Spring-Summer usually sees people opting for lighter shades, but you know me – the darker the better. Well it’s not earth shattering but it does mark a change in my own personal style.
