Throwing shade: Punchy pink is your Summer hue-cue, here’s how to wear it
The runway that broke the internetthis seas was definitely Jacquemus' S/S20, 10th anniversry catwalk.
This season we’re advocating you leave your outdated gender stereotypes by the door and lean into a rosier shaded hue that will leave both yourself and your wardrobe firmly in the pink.
Washing over head-to-toe tailoring at Alexander McQueen and adorning both the walls and silk lapels of Dior, the sherbet shade’s reach was far and wide at the S/S20 shows, and now it’s time for it to make its way into your wardrobe, too. Let’s unbox this trend together, shall we?

Whether you’re already a full-throttled fan of fuchsia or a more cautious will-experiment-with-salmon-socks type, make sure you’re sticking to a one shade per look ratio. Paler blush-hues such as champagne or rose can be pared with other pastel shades such as daffodil or pistachio, while bolder shades of magenta needs no competition – pair cautiously with light-wash denim and dark, textural pieces like a leather jacket so your fit says ‘making a statement’ as opposed to ‘making a mistake’.
