Textured Pink

New Look Turtle Neck Long Sleeve Top

H&M Nude Suede Effect Skirt
Missguided Pink Faux Fur Gilet

H&M Over Knee Black Socks

Office Platform Wedge Black Suede Boot (Sale)
New Look Tassle Front Shopper Bag
Gemporia Cat Freshwater Pearl Sterling Silver Necklace*
Accessorize Delicate Crystal Ear Cuff (Similar)

Textured Pink is something that I’ve seen all over SS16 magazine features, fashion blogs, and more. So of course, I had to create my own little version of this look to take me into the new season in style. The contrasting textures of the fluffy gilet and the suede effect skirt give depth, whilst a roll neck top adds sophistication and obviously, protection against the still-bloody-freezing Spring climate in Wales.

I find that this can be quite a bold look on it’s own, so I’ve opted for some simple, yet effective, accessories. The simple boxy tassel bag adds another contrasting detail and some silver rings adds subtle metallic touches. I am completely in love with the gorgeous Pearl Cat Necklace* from Gemporia which adds that delicate touch, and works especially well with a high neckline – plus, it’s purrrrfect for a Kitty Princess like me.

How would you style edgy pastels into SS16?
