Whether it’s candyfloss-hued or bordering on fluoro-level bright, pink is one of fashion’s most contentious colours. If you’re not yet ready to commit to wearing clothes in the hue, give these pink accessories a try - you might find that the sugary shade is easier to pull off than you think.

Make pink accessories work in the office, by the pool and beyond

One common misconception about pink is that it’s too youthful to wear in a professional environment. However, while you might want to give your magenta jumpsuit a miss the next time you’re in the office, there’s no harm in adding a few gentle blush tones to your look. Match the dusty hues and nude shades in your workwear arsenal with a pink structured tote - the bag’s clean lines will cancel out any frothy connotations. Warm-weather essentials, like sun hats and sunglasses, feature in our accessories in pink edit, meaning you can nail off-duty style, too. Just grab a good book and your favourite swimwear, and you’ll be poolside-ready.

Pink accessories: not just for the girls

Did you know that, up until the early 1900s, pink was more frequently worn by men than women? Yep - this typically ‘girly’ hue is more historically linked to menswear than you might have thought. For us, pink for men never really went out of style, and, by adding a pink accessory to your look, even pink-phobic guys can dip their toes in the water. Work a sporty 90s look by teaming light-wash denim clothing with a pink baseball cap, or smarten up your game by wearing a pink tie with a sharp shirt. Tops in understated tones, like sky blue and crisp white, always work well with accessories in pink.
