Whether it’s candyfloss-hued or bordering on fluoro-level bright, pink is one of fashion’s most contentious colours. If you’re not yet ready to commit to wearing clothes in the hue, give these pink accessories a try - you might find that the sugary shade is easier to pull off than you think.
One common misconception about pink is that it’s too youthful to wear in a professional environment. However, while you might want to give your magenta jumpsuit a miss the next time you’re in the office, there’s no harm in adding a few gentle blush tones to your look. Match the dusty hues and nude shades in your workwear arsenal with a pink structured tote - the bag’s clean lines will cancel out any frothy connotations. Warm-weather essentials, like sun hats and sunglasses, feature in our accessories in pink edit, meaning you can nail off-duty style, too. Just grab a good book and your favourite swimwear, and you’ll be poolside-ready.
Did you know that, up until the early 1900s, pink was more frequently worn by men than women? Yep - this typically ‘girly’ hue is more historically linked to menswear than you might have thought. For us, pink for men never really went out of style, and, by adding a pink accessory to your look, even pink-phobic guys can dip their toes in the water. Work a sporty 90s look by teaming light-wash denim clothing with a pink baseball cap, or smarten up your game by wearing a pink tie with a sharp shirt. Tops in understated tones, like sky blue and crisp white, always work well with accessories in pink.
