Everyone I Know Wants to Wear This Summer Colour From Head to Toe


“Think pink! Think pink! When you shop for summer clothes. Think pink! Think pink! If you want that quel-que chose,” sings actress Kay Thompson in the classic 1957 fashion film, Funny Face. The entire opening sequence hinges on an American fashion magazine declaring that pink has come to save the wardrobes of us all. A stretch? Maybe. But quite suddenly, my entire Instagram feed (aka our thread of colleague-to-colleague work messages) are littered with pink outfits. 

Pink, in all its many shades, is no strange to high fashion circles these days. About five years or so, a pink revolution came and the colour once and for all managed to shake off its dated associations and gender stereotypes. It became the official hue of millennials. Interiors, clothing and even hairstyles were updated to be rosy. It has been unwaveringly present on the runways ever since. This season, you’ll find vibrant fuchsia dresses at Valentino and Molly Goddard, pastel iterations from Chanel and neon-pink suiting at Versace. And now, it’s all I want to buy and wear, and I know many of my peers feel the same way too. 

So if you too would like to indulge in summer (if not 2022’s) top colour, keep scrolling for some excellent outfit and shopping inspiration.

Anne’s unexpected combo of pink sweatshirt and cow-print pants has me enthralled! It’s not for everyone, but it’s worth a go.

Karina’s pink knit dress has been all over the internet lately. It looks like a joy to wear, so I can’t blame anyone! The thicker material makes it one to wear for cooler summer evenings through to next season, too. 

Co-ord sets are quite literally everywhere for summer, and short sleeve shirts with shorts are leading the way. Yep, pyjamas can work, too. 

I like both the idea of wearing pink, red and maroon but also a cardigan with leather trousers. Thank you, Emili.

Emma’s pink shirt is understated but just so cool. It doesn’t need much styling to be the perfect summery look. 

A pink sweater-vest layered over your favourite pink summer dress is the perfect combo for an in-between weather day. 

Our favourite “old Céline” dress styled with red strappy shoes. Perfect.

A pink blouse and jeans? So simple but so effective. A solid reminder here from the #1 pink lover, Zeena.

Jeniese’s pink overalls and trainers combination is perfect for brightening up any day of the week. 

Lilac and pink make the sweetest bedfellows, and Karoline has artfully thrown some zebra print into the mix too.

Madeleine has totally convinced me to buy a big bohemian pink cardigan.

Dolly-ish pink dress with pop socks and heels? That’s my next summer soirée look sorted. 

Michelles bubble-gum pink skirt suit is just adorable and giving me Clueless vibes.

Naaomi’s popping pink slip skirt is an easy way to liven up a basic sweater. Of course she goes one step further with pastel pink accessories.

Nnenna has totally talked me into a fluoro blazer with gingham trousers.

Pernille’s crafty knit and tutu skirt isn’t for the minimalists out there, but it is 100% fun!

Janka’s entire feed is full of colour, but I just love this vibrant-red-and–neon-pink combo. So joyful.

Sara’s ultra-cute combination really wowed everyone over on Instagram.

Sara is always persuading me that more is more, and she’s not the first woman in this gallery to try pink and zebra print together. So I think it needs to be done!
