When you think of the colour pink, you might imagine Barbie dolls or the 2001 chick flick Legally Blonde, in which Elle Woods lives and breathes pink, carries around a small chihuahua and writes on pink stationery with fuzzy pens. In spite of all that, pink isn’t just for girly girls anymore. This year, designers including Gucci and Jil Sanders have launched a pink revival, with fresh and defiant designs that almost make you forget the stereotypes associated with this colour. Off the runways, actresses, influencers and even royals are embracing the trend, too. If you’re still in doubt, read on as we show you the best ways to work pink into your wardrobe.

1

Add graphic elements

Choosing a design with eye-catching graphic details — as seen here on Brie Lawson — will divert some of the focus away from the pink and, at the same time, add individuality and uniqueness to the look.

Where to buy: Emilio Pucci embroidered feather skirt (approx. HK$15,540).

2

Focus on accessories

Opt for a minimal black-and-white outfit with delicate details, and then pair that with accessories in a striking pink colour. Elle Fanning provides a perfect demonstration with this elegant look.

Where to buy: Gucci GG Marmont matelassé shoulder bag (HK$19,000).

3

Play with unisex design

Wear a long coat over a white jumpsuit, just like Olivia Palermo. Make sure you choose a unisex design and a lighter tone to create a look that is both stylish and sophisticated.

Where to buy: Burberry London ‘Alphington’ wool-felt coat (HK$15,000).

4

Mix your tones

Pick a minimal design in muted pink for both top and bottom pieces like Jennifer Lopez. Choose two different tones instead of one to add more depth to your look.

Where to buy: Chloé’s turtleneck sweater (HK$6,320), Carven wrap skirt (HK$4,010).

5

Go bohemian

A Romantic combination of vintage and modern styles, a dress with a bohemian design — as seen on the Duchess of Cambridge — will leave you looking fashionable and, at the same time, elegant and graceful.

Where to buy: Giambattista Valli floral print long-sleeved dress (HK$15,665).
