Trend We Like: Pink

Following on from the brief glimpse of a shocking pink coat on Lilly Allen via Marc Jacobs and Dunnes Stores duffle coats back in November, I can’t help but notice that pink is EVERYWHERE now!

Luckily, hot pink and fuchsia pink are set to stay put well into 2010, with the spring summer catwalks brimming with this vibrant hue – including Dolce & Gabbana, Isabel Marant and DSquared (belt pictured),  and as is usual, this trend trickled fast onto the high street.

Pink isn’t just for summer either, pink accessories are the perfect way to add a pop of colour to a dark winter outfit, especially if you’re not one to go for the full-on pink coat look.

Pink bag

In fact Sarah Jessica Parker has been stuck to a patent pink bowler bag during her recent “Did You Hear About the Morgans” publicity tour – from wearing it with her Ugg boots, jeans and a blazer to a dress to a coat and winter boots.

Seeing as her SJP’s pink bag is only available in one shop in NYC (Beyond 7), I thought it only fair to find one closer by and came across this Fuchsia Eel Leather Clutch Bag (£28, €32) on Tallulah Tu (my most recent shopping obsession). There’s a rectangular clutch on Fuschia pink on there too.

The vintage-style clasp gives it an elegant vintage feel that would go well with any little black dress. Turns out that this clutch was also featured on Vogue and Elle too, but I just had to share it with you.

Pink footwear

These Carvela “altitude” platforms (top right) were aptly named by Kurt Geiger (£120, €134) are pretty high but would certainly add a pop of colour to an all black ensemble. Dorothy Perkins also do a more economical pair for £30,€34.

Pink  court shoes or platforms are glamorous for some but if suede in Irish weather shouts “impractical” at you, Oasis do a patent leather version.

If the office is the furthest thing from your life or it’s the thought of wearing heels that puts you off or you simply you can’t be convinced, then opt for a pair of pink wellingtons which are always practical from a walk through the puddles in the city to walking your dog in a nearby field. They’ll even see you through to festival time and beyond!

    I love my Hunter wellies but I find that my feet are always cold in them, is that the solution, woolly socks?! Id love to be able to afford sheepskin lined ones!

    Hunter do their own brand of fleece socks for wellies if you to keep ‘branded’.. they worn with the top of them ouver the wellies so you can still see the Hunter Brand….

    oh cool! Not too worried bout the brand being on show but I’m sure they’d be toasty and warm.
