How do you feel about pink: Do you love it or hate it? While we’re a tad partial to this femme hue, we do understand why some shy away from the shade, especially those whose signature style doesn’t scream girly girl or flirty and frivolous.

But times are a-changing. While pink has traditionally been associated with all things feminine and froufrou, designers have upped their game over the past few seasons and given the hue a modern makeover, which has seen it fast become a fashion favourite – not just with ladylike types but minimalists, androgynous dressers, fashion rebels, and the cool, casual kids, too.

Still not sold on the sweet yet sassy colour? Well, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s probably going to be #trending for the next few seasons, so there’s really no escaping the powerful pull of pink…for much longer, anyway.

But we’ve got good news, too. It’s not just pastel pink and shocking neon tints that are bang on-trend at the moment, but every shade in between is getting a look in, too. So whether you prefer pink-tinged champagne, rosy blush or look-at-me fuchsia, you’ll have no problem finding a way to incorporate this en vogue colourway into your wardrobe this season. Promise.

For those who still need a little nudge in the right direction, we’ve put together 5 outfits that prove that pink can be styled to suit any style. Go on, step out of your sartorial comfort zone, and give it a try.

And for those who need no convincing when it comes to wearing this versatile shade…enjoy!
