The sorbet pastels of spring have gone and they've been replaced by something far more feisty. The colour of the moment is pink, but don't call it sissy. Bold and bright, fuchsia is finding itself on the runway and into celebrity wardrobes.

HOW TO WEAR IT

Steer your pink away from Barbie and into bold with edgy accessories and strong silhouettes. Team with white and nude shades for a fresh and sophisticated look, or nod to a graphic mood and pair it back with black. 


WHO CAN WEAR IT?

This is a look for everyone, though those not quite brave enough to invest in a full dress can rock the look with a fuchsia accessory or two. Try a nod to the trend in a bold bangle or as an accent on a pair of shoes.
