In A/W, we wear pink

French Vogue
JS Lee trompe l'oeil - Topshop Unique
T-shirt - Jade Clark at Lavish Alice
Fluffy Jumper - Asos
Everything else - Topshop

Of all the trends that have emerged this A/W, the flurries of pink storming down the catwalks and taking over the streetstyle blogs have been by far the most refreshing. Every shade from candyfloss, to bubblegum: fuchsia to cerise welcome, we're all Barbie girls here.
Don't be fooled however, you don't have to be exhaling rainbows and unicorns in order to embrace this trend - teaming an oversized, soft pink jumper with heavy silver wear, leather skinnies and chunky boots creates an instantly on-trend and grungey look. The powder pink coats seen everywhere from French Vogue to Topshop Unique offer a more sophisticated vibe, whereas a simple vest like the Topshop one above can be dressed up or down - with jeans, skirts or a pair of shorts and would be a perfect way to dip your toes in the pink waters.
The examples I've shown above are my current favourites on the high street, although I'm sure there will be much more to come as the new season items trickle in. The two jumpers are highest on my wishlist - you can't beat a cosy knit to throw on in the colder months and both will act as statement pieces to instantly update your wardrobe.

What do you think of this trend?

Love Ellen xx


  1. I love those pieces you picked out.
    That shirt and teddybear sweater are awesome

  2. I find it strange how the paler pinks are on trend as these are colder colours, not a cosy AW trend! Cute though xxxx xxx

  3. How cool is that picture with the 3 pink girls? I shall seek a pastel pink winter coat and I shall direct anyone who questions me to this post.
    Thanks for posting (:


  4. I used to never wear pink but I love it this season! Love the asos jumper x

  5. I've never been a pink person but i'm loving it at the moment!
