Fuchsia was the key colour trend in the Spring/Summer shows. I am not your pink kinda a women, I own about three piece of garments that are some shade of pink. This high waisted Vintage Moschino Cheap and Chic skirt is one, I have had this hanging at the back of my wardrobe for years. I love the bow details at the front and how it is very fitted and has a slight kick flare at the bottom. It is so pretty that I found it hard to resist from not buying it. I thought this was the right time for it to come out and make a presence, I have styled it with my trumpet sleeve Karen Millen shirt in white. The colour combination works very well together in my opinion.
Here are a few more suggestions on how to style Fuchsia/pink:
Make sure you choose the right shade of pink for you; When you are going for a more sophisticated look or going to the office, choose a more muted hue. Colours such as dusty rose, peach and blush colours are the safest for a more subtle look. For those of us who want to go for a pop of colour, bright corals or fuchsias make a bold statement.
Why not use fuchsia as an accent colour instead of the main shade: Try using it as a subtle accent to compliment other shades, wear your boyfriend jeans, a white T-Shirt, a black blazer, and add a pair of blush loafers to complete the look. Why not go for a thin pink belt with a white dress, or add a pair of blush coloured boots to an all black ensemble to give it that pop of colour. There are some beautiful blush coloured loafers at Dune at the moment. Find blush loafers (here).
Go for muted pink trousers or jeans; Refresh your jean capsule with a good pair of skinny jeans in pastel pink colour. Pair them up with a white T-Shirt to give you an easy off-duty look. Go for the cropped hems which works well with everything from sneakers top pumps. Cropped blush coloured trousers are a polished and office appropriate way to wear pink. Find pastel coloured jeans (here) and (here)
Faux Leather as an accent piece; Faux Leather is an edgier choice than your average silk or cotton, so why not throw on a black faux leather pencil skirt with a pink blouse this will give your outfit a business like look. Add a faux leather jacket to your pink dress to give it that grown-up look. Why not go for a faux leather skirt in a muted pink hue to amp the style. Find faux leather skirts (here)
Coats; Why not go for a well fitted fuchsia coat and make a bold statement with this unexpected piece of outerwear. If, however, you find you are uncomfortable wearing the shade to a particular occasion, the coat can be removed and you are still left with a more conservative outfit.
Block colours Fuchsia and Scarlett Red; When it comes to colour pairings there is one combination that you see again and again, fuchsia with scarlet red. The key to this look is to stay away from prints, stick to statement colour block pieces and embrace unexpected layering to create that impact your looking for. Find Scarlet Red tops (here)
I went for a shoe boot from Karen Millen, a vintage mini cross body bag in black and my Rapture Cat-Eye Le Specs sunglasses to complete the look. Let me know any other ways to style fuchsia/pink, I would love to hear how you are styling them.
