MAD ABOUT HUE – CORAL CRUSH
Is there anything more uplifting (and catch ya later, winter!) than wearing a pop of colour? This summer season, our sights are set on a new happy hue. Her name is Coral Crush. (Like?) She’s a beauty: classic, yet fresh like a just-picked papaya and girly with a neon-tinged edge. Remember Emma Stone on the 2011 Golden Globes red carpet in that frothy Calvin Klein number? Yeah, she’s that.
While we’d love to take a page (and an outfit, or five) out of the designer runways – Burberry Prorsum or Badgley Mischka comes to mind – we’re being real about it. To wit: We gorge on footwear and accessories that still let us crush on the coral colour trend.
Take the coral clutch, with gold hardware and chain. It is the perfect tenor for a pleated ivory skirt and crop top. Very on-trend, very RTW. The yummy cantaloupe shade of the peep-toe patent leather would get along swimmingly with a floral summer dress in chiffon, yes? And, naturally, who can possibly ignore the jewellery. Oh, the immense pleasure we feel in buying pretty pieces! Our faves? The pointed stiletto in gorgeous coral leather, and the delicate stud earrings with pops of the most feminine pink stones. We’re already planning our next coffee date #ootd around them.
