Bright Pink & Faux Leather Trousers (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

I have been craving some brights of late. I feel like an injection of colour is exactly what is needed this late in to the winter, and with Spring in the not so distant future it seemed like a good idea to add a few pieces to my wardrobe that will see me through.
This obnoxiously pink, and i use that as a term of endearment, jumper is just fab. Cosy, soft, bright and just shouts FUN at the top of it pink knitted rows. It made for a perfect date night outfit as it's still cold in the evenings, but the extroverted colour made the outfit sassy and enjoyable to wear. As did my trusty faux leather trousers, that i have really not worn enough this winter. Super happy to have them back on these legs again.
The contrast between the faux leather and the soft knit is one of my favourite combinations, soft and tough, black and pink. Add in a hit of leopard and the silver clutch and i was dressed to my happiest.

Pink is such a great colour as there is pretty much a shade for everyone. With pale pink and blush reigning predominantly, its great to see some punchy pinks back in action. I would also hazard a guess that these bright shades will be big through spring, so grab yourself a pretty pink number now.
They are also a great deceiver of tiredness. The instant pick-me-up in sweater form. The colour will radiate and make you instantly look more glowing, happy and will bring colour to your cheeks. The next time you feel absolutely drained to your core and grey to the skin, try a bright pink jumper, I promise you it adds instant pep!

This jumper will work well with causal jeans as well as my faux leather skirt, so i hope it will see a lot more wear in the next few months, plus i just really enjoy wearing it. Its fun. And dressing should be fun, Amiright?

Also sidenote: these photos were taken after just after 5pm.. i apologise for the slightly dim lighting.. But hallelujah! Bloggers breathe a collective sigh of relief, as taking photos starts to get that little bit easier! Hello light nights, you've been missed!

  1. I'm Intrigued to know what camera you are using for your beautiful shots Rachel. I read, watch and navigate all aspects of trying to set up my camera to get better clearer photos! I just never seem to get it right!
    Love the hot pink with the red nail varnish. It's a great colour pop!

  10. I do love pink. In fact, I just read an article in WSJ that women are wearing it more because the younger women don't consider it bad to show their femininity!!
    I love it with the leopard heels too!!

  23. Thanks for this post. Great tips! I really struggle with summer dressing and sometimes feel that I wear the same thing all year round but with fewer layers!! The UK summers have not been that great recently so I could get away with it but it would be nice to have some lovely outfits prepared for when we do get some warm weather. I love your use of white and am inspired to have a go at using more white especially trousers. I also like to wear dresses in the summer.

  24. Love those outfits! Looking forward to seeing your date night picks! :) Access the deep web Best Questions to ask a girl watch free movies online Sports Streaming sites
