Pink is having a moment- after making an appearance on the runways of Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton last year, it has officially gained status as the hottest colour of SS17. The trend has been adopted by everyone from Instagram style influencers to a certain Mr Harry Styles, who opted for a bubblegum pink suit when making his debut solo performance earlier this year.
It might be on-trend, but pink isn't always the easiest colour to pull off. Here are some tips on how to style the look (and avoid looking like an extra from Miami Vice)...
Keep it simple
This colour doesn't really need too much help to make a sartorial impact. If you're thinking of braving head-to-toe pink, keep it clean and minimal without too many distractions. We love the pastel pink 'Ringo B' suit by Reiss; its slim fit and clean cut tailoring guarantee a sharp look. French Connection also have a fantastic linen blazer for those who don't want to commit to pink too fully.

Dip a toe
Not brave enough for head to toe blush? Subtle separates should be your go-to. Team a pastel shirt with navy chinos, or nail two of this summer's trends by accessorising a stone coloured blazer with a pink pocket square. A word of warning- be cautious when teaming pink with pale grey; this colour combination is more 'Best Man' than stylish gentleman.
It's not all about formalwear; pink is having a moment in off-duty style and street wear too. Reiss have got it right again with this Akio bomber jacket. Or you could do classic casual by pairing your favourite jeans and loafers with a simple pink tee.
