Funny enough my obsession with pastel – and pink in specific – didn’t start Yeats ago, when I was a little girl and as one would expect, being pink all the way. On the contrary. As far as I can remember, I never had a thing for it, really, until maybe two years ago. Pastel pink became “millennial pink” and suddenly it was everywhere. Brands created whole brand identities around it, pink walls became essential to interior designers, and I hadn’t seen as many pastel pink collections ever on a runway. And until today, I am, and I feel confident saying we all are, still very much obsessing over it. It’s not over, and I feel it’s going to be here to stay…
Even more, so I found out, pastel pink – or millennial pink – in combination with other pastel colors, such as yellow or baby blue are just rad. Other than you might expect, it doesn’t make you feel like an Easter figure in the wild, but it lifts your mood, and makes you look rather sophisticated. But I do understand that this is a lot for some of you, and don’t worry, that’s okay, too. However, if you feel only the slightest appealed to what I’m wearing today – YES this is part of the Versace Tribute Collection, and it’s so retro – you should definitely try. Maybe the pink is not for you, but how about a baby blue suit, with soft pink slides? Don’t you think that could be cute, right! Trust me on this one – if you don’t want to go all the way, combine it with your favourite pair of blue jeans – and you will embrace spring as you have never before. Let the sun shine!
