Pink Trousers, Fruit Juices And White TrainersFashion
If you told me last year, I’d be wearing pink trousers on Regent Street, I’d probably have given you a very funny look.
But that’s what I love about fashion, it always pushes us to try new things season after season.
‘Never, say never’ and you’re bound to enjoy yourself more when it comes to your wardrobe.
There’s something very Mad Men about wearing pink trousers and it took me a little research to find the right pair.
These cropped flares from French high-street brand Claudie Pierlot won me over because of their striking shade and their quality.
They look really cropped on the model but on a real person like me (5ft 6″) they skim just above my ankle.
Matching the ideals of a dream French wardrobe to the realities of our 24/7, always-on culture, Claudie Pierlot’s designs hit the fine spot between pragmatic and fantastic. These high-rise, flared and cropped trousers allow us to live out our 70s cool-girl persona, but the colour’s kept muted enough to make them a proposition for the boardroom.
A touch of wool in the gabardine fabric exudes luxury – best paired with the matching suit jacket.
Their cut means that they flatter all the right places without showing up any lumps and bumps.

How To Style Your Pink
It’s not as difficult as you think. Pink trousers look great with breton tops, white t-shirts, and peasant blouses.
Leather and denim all love pink as does gingham and black. Wicker and straw bags look especially sweet with this candy hue.
Put any gender stereotypes aside – this season encourages wearing the pink rainbow. From fuchsia to rose, to peach and everything in between.
It’s flattering on blondes and brunettes and looks great with white trainers.
Dress these up with block heels, I’m thinking – black block sandals with little pearls, and a striped off-the-shoulder top – for a dinner out.
Pink doesn’t have to be sickly sweet either, team it with leather for a little edge. Nothing looks more fresh and stylish than pink and black – it just works beautifully.
Pink trousers conjure up sunny or even slightly chilly UK summer days. They cheer things up instantly and people are always very complimentary about pink trousers. Stand out from the denim crowd, and you’ll find yourself never in a bad mood when wearing these.
Now, I’m off to get a fruit juice.
