Find out why you need to wear pink this winter

In the depths of winter, there is no better colour to brighten your skin than pink. Universally flattering with any colouring, it also happens to be style director Louise Hilsz's favourite shade. Lucky for her it's everywhere this season. Check out her best buys.

No longer a colour associated with pre-schoolers, pink is a grown-up girls hue that is both flattering and on-trend. Here's how to add a shot of this pretty shade to your wardrobe this winter.


Step away from black this winter and embrace the feminine shade of blush. Match soft pink with metallic accessories or white to make this shade the hero.

For the pink novice out there, the best way to embrace the pink trend is to accessorise with it. A jolt of hot fuschia in a scarf, pair of shoes or a bag is a nod to this trend, and a great way to add colour to a dull winter wardrobe.

Go classic when wearing cerise pink. Think unfussy, like a skirt or dress or choose a multi-coloured item with some bling for that statement pop of colour.
