When colours like pale pink and punchy neon yellow come to mind, the sartorially conscious eye immediately turns to spring. However, on the Fall 2016/Winter 2017 runways, sunny tones contrasted against blush shades and caused a beautiful explosion. Models strut the catwalk wearing ensembles in lemonade and candy hues, which just might offer a remedy to the dreary weather outdoors. If you’re coveting a dose of yellow and pink this season, we’ve curated our favourite ways to adopt this runway trend.
For a funky Saturday afternoon look, take your sartorial cues from the Delpozo runway. Slip into an oversized mauve-pink cape coat, knotted at the waist with a sash belt. Meanwhile, pleated yellow ankle pants, a matching collared blouse and chunky lace-up brogues complete the vibrant and unconventional ensemble.
Once the business week kicks off, look no further than the Creatures of Comfort runway to master the trend. Step out in a knit yellow turtleneck, paired with a suede boyfriend blazer in a refreshingly soft shade of dusty pink. For a finishing touch, loose suede trousers and pointed toe leather shoes help to bring your outfit to an entirely new level.
For the after hours, the aesthetic seen at Marissa Webb proves that the trend can also be worn with airy, fluttery layers. Turn to a slip in a darker mustard tone of yellow, layered with a sheer pink lace frock for a girlish effect. For a sexy take, add a pair of black over-the-knee suede boots to emphasize your slender legs.
