"Whoever said orange was the new pink is seriously disturbed" (Legally Blonde)

Well first off I am SO sorry that I haven't posted in over a week! So so horrible of me, especially after my long hiatus at camp and now this... I was just sooo caught up with tennis, summer reading, watching grey's re-runs and just doing nothing (my favorite thing to do) that I have been a terrible blogger! Sorry about that but I'm working on a handful of posts right now so there are more to come!

The ultimate pink-wearing queen: Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde (sorry, I just had to put the picture in here because I was watching the movie the other night with some friends and I had forgotten how good it was!)

So I don't know about you but I was having some serious issues trying to interpret the new pink trend for fall. I had absolutely NO idea how to pull it off! Anyways, I did some looking around online and I think I found some cute pink clothes/accessories that are wearable and then I gave some tips on how to pull it off. Enjoy!


I found these articles in teen vogue and lucky after I made the post. I thought I may just include them for kicks.

how to get in on the trend:

for the truly daring

Claybrooke collarless trench coat by Burberry, $1295, at net-a-porter
Perhaps my favorite thing by far. It's a shame that the price is just a tad over my limit but I can always dream... hehe. But I love the black buttons and the dark magenta color.

Rich & Skinny Leggy Jean, $176, at shopbop

Sparkle & Fade Shiny Leggings by Urban Outfitters, $24, at urban outfitters
Gosh well I may just worship you if you can pull these babies off. I most definitely could not but to all those daring fashionistas with enough fashion sense to make these look good, I will seriously hail you as my fashion savior.

for the trendy fashion addict

Revival Floral Tunic by Free People, $98, at free people
I really love the design at the bottom of this dress, gorgeous!!

Jeffrey Campbell Vivid Heel, $98, at urban outfitters

Clarice Wool Dress by Marc by Marc Jacobs, $358, at shopbop
Oh my goodness, probably my second favorite thing here. I love the cut and the keyhole at the top with the black accent button.

Moyna bag, $76, at moyna

Alexis Windbreaker by Forever 21, $22.80, at forever 21
cheap + chic= love it

Flared mini dress by Milly, $410, at net-a-porter
One of my other favorite things- loving the black accent bow at the top= complete genius!

for the subtle trendsetter

OPI nail color in Strawberry Margherita, $7.00, at OPI
Wearing this color right now and it is a pretty pink, especially for your toes.

Skinny Leather Belt by Miu Miu, $195, at net-a-porter
A fabulous belt to do over a brown sweater or a tunic.

Jersey Headband by Forever 21, $2.80, at forever 21

Egyptian cotton cardigan by Jcrew, $68, at jcrew

how to pull it all off:

It's really all about balancing out the color, subtle and dark hues work great.
If you're going to go with the classic pink dress, I'd suggest accessorizing with black tights and either black chunky heels or booties. Like these:

Sparkle & Fade Opaque Tights, $12, at urban outfitters

Kork-ease patent wedge, $158, at urban outfitters

Duplex boot by Steve Madden, $130, at steve madden

If you're going to go with the pants, I'd suggest doing a classic white shirt (button-down is an option) and a jean jacket and maybe pair it with a pair of booties like the ones above.

Classic jean jacket by Gap, $50, at gap

If you're going to go with the pink coat (trench or bomber) I'd suggest doing the classic black or navy trousers underneath with a button down and a sweater vest on top.

Solid deep V-neck vest by Jcrew, $59.50, at jcrew

City-fit lightweight wool twill wide-leg cuffed trouser by Jcrew, $148, at jcrew

Elle Woods is my ultimate hero! Smart AND stylish, that's something to aspire to be! And now I can dress like her. Fabulous :]

Aisha said...

Not a fan of pink colour =/

But with all the nice pictures you posted i think i'll manage to find something pink =).

Anyways, I love the hot pink nail-polish, I want to try it (=, maybe i'll start with that.


Kat said...

Great post:-) Hot pink is such a difficult colour to wear, indeed tht goes for propably every shade of pink! Great suggestions and I love some of the pieces you picked, that Burberry coat is just the epitome of fabulous! The urban outfitters chunky sandals are very cool too. I bought hot pink tights recently, don't worry they're not shiny, but I actually can't wait to wear them, they'll liven up any outfit!

I WISH I could wear pink...It just makes me look ill. I *might* be able to pull off the nail polish, but I will probably have to skip over this tred.

Tru said...

I think for me, I'm going to channel the pink trend with a pair of high octane hot pink pumps

hannah said...

i hardly own any pink. so now i must go buy some of the marvelous stuff you posted.
