Pink reigns supreme this season. From blush to anything but shy, the rosy hue was a runway favorite with brands like Valentino, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Balenciaga and Tory Burch. For those who prefer a more subtle pop of pink, the cool-girl color is prettifying every accessory you can think of. We’ve gathered some of the season’s standouts, so you can live la vie en rose.
Karl knows exactly what fashion lovers need. Chanel’s pink-on-pink clutch in luxe lambskin is the ideal complement to any LBD or LWD. The envelope style is timeless and chic, plus roomy enough for all the essentials.
“At the core of the brand is a modern, simple, super feminine silhouette,” Gianvito Rossi recently told Bal Harbour Shops of his masterful creations. We’d add “obsession-worthy” to that list. His peep-toe Muse heel elegantly fuses the sweet—pale pink patent leather—and the sexy—an enticing ankle wrap.
Colored stones are a top trend in the jewelry world, so get in with some wrist action from David Yurman. The Mustique Four Station Bangle Bracelet features cabachon pink opals set in 18-karat yellow gold—a gorgeous accomplice to spring’s breezy florals and ethereal whites.
Trophy earrings have taken center stage this season. Oscar de la Renta offers a lavish selection of more-is-more stunners like these crystal laser-cut discs. The bold fuchsia style is worth building an outfit around.
This is definitely the season to see the world through rose-colored glasses. Dial up the drama of everyday looks with glam aviators from Michael Kors. Not only are hued lenses going strong, but aviators are universally flattering on every face shape.
Nail all-day polish with Roger Vivier’s Viv’ Cabas leather bag in dusty pink. A statement in modern elegance, this top handle offers a removable shoulder strap and handy pockets to stay organized. Plus it’ll work with just about every ensemble — pale pink is the new neutral.
All hail the block heel that’s giving us a boost this season. Charlotte Olympia’s Jane woven sandal combines practicality and panache with a chunky 4-inch heel and sophisticated T-strap design.
