designer lounge: pink

I have finally managed to connect to the internet today from Andrew's parents house so here goes an extremely over due 'designer lounge'....

First of all let me say a big 'HAPPY HALLOWEEN' to everyone. Ironically I will be posting about the colour pink today, slightly untoward as halloween is a day representative of all things gothic, deadly and evil and lets face it the colour 'pink' couldn't be any less relevant........

Secondly can I please ask you all to 'like' my Bigwardrobe Stylist: Lauryn page and the outfits I post as I could win prizes and ultimately a job with the styling team..thanks guys!..

PINK: Perhaps a colour that previously most of us would have avoided for fear of looking too 'girly', pink has made its way back onto the high street this season and I for one think its come back is way over due.

I would advise investing in some sunglasses this season as not only is pink back, but its brighter and bolder than ever before. Prepare to see an influx of fluorescent, eye catching shades of pink this season as this ladies and gentlemen is a colour that you should no longer fear. Depending on how brave you are, team your pink item of clothing with polka dots or glitter for a fun and festive combination.

If the catwalk is anything to go by, pink is set to be this seasons key colour of choice....

WARNING: contains hot pink
If you love this trend but are not quite sure if you could pull off a pink item of clothing, why not adapt this look and go for a pink lipstick to brighten up your style and add a hint of glamour.

Check out how Beyonce wore her high impact, high fashion pink lipstick.

 After extensive search, here are some of the best pink items I have found on the high street.

For those of you who feel that a slightly more subtler pink is more your thing,
this silk velvet tee is from Topshop and cost £36. For the perfect autumn look team this top with a stylish blazer and cropped chinos. 

Although these tailored trousers are very expensive, there are plenty of inexpensive variations on the high street. These hot pink crepe trousers are £127 from Urban Outfitters. 

These 'pretty n pink' Nubuck boat shoes are from Urban Outfitters
and are in the sale costing £25

Inject a sense of colour into your outfit with these bright pink asymmetric court shoes. These beautiful heels are £40 and can be found in River Island. Ideally these shoes would look great with an entirely black outfit.
