Looking at life style pictures this season, there seems to be lately a big trend of putting together grey and pale pink. This has become very visible particularly in home decor and accessories. And it is quite easy to understand why. At the time of the year, we are drawn to anything that is cosy and warm, and surely there is something in pale pink that brightens grey hues, as well as something in grey that softens the warmth of pink.
This can be easily adopted in fashion to create a toned down but luxurious look. The key is to keep the balance right.
Firstly, finding right trousers is very important. In this case, the Cropped Wide-Leg Trousers from Karen Millen, would be a great choice since they are well-tailored and just what you need to bring out the convenience of this trend. Although they have a slightly official look about them, they can surely be worn casually and be very stylish.
You could pair them with a pink halter top and through in a classy short jacket to be set for an evening out. If you would rather wear it to work, find a pink top that you can tuck-in and accentuate this look with a slim belt of a dark colour.
However, in order to achieve this cosy and luxurious look that we are after, a short length, cashmere sweater, such as Jeager’s Wool Cashmere V-Neck Sweater, would work very well.
The next step is picking the shoes. To keep the outfit toned down, they should have a delicate grey shade. Nine West’s Tanesha High Heel Ankle Boots is a pair to have, with their practical design and beautiful finish.
Equally, as important to this look as the shoes, is a bag. This could to a large extent depend on the kind of look you wish to portray, although some pieces, like the Ava bag by Michael Kors are very versatile. This leather bag, available in designer cement colour, matches the pink and grey outfit perfectly. The bag also has enough space to fit all the essentials.
When putting together an outfit it is not all just about colours and shades, but textures play a very important role too. The pink and grey trend can be portrayed in many ways, but it softness and delicacy can only be achieved by choosing fabrics and finishes, which are not overwhelming.
