As the days get cooler and the nights get longer, we know the temptation to reach for all-black-everything. But don’t let the waning weather dampen your spirits or your wardrobe colour palette.

With appearances on all of the major runways (think Balenciaga, Céline, and Valentino), pink is back in a big new way – and it’s not just for summer. Whether it’s Gigi Hadid in a bubblegum pink bomber or Rihanna in a pastel pink suit, this pretty palette has gotten the official seal of approval from fashion’s it crowd.

The perfect trend to test out at the upcoming Autumn Racing Carnival or a romantic autumn wedding, a splash of pink is guaranteed to stand out against a sea of moodier hues.

Perfect for any skin tone due to its tonal range and depth, pink is surprisingly versatile. From powdery pastels to rich rose hues, there’s a shade of pink to suit everyone. Whether you’re a girly girl, a statement maker or a little colour shy – we show you how to rock this season’s most coveted shade.

Flirty and Feminine

Play to pink’s undeniably feminine side and opt for flirty frills, cascading ruffles or intricate lace.

For a sweeter, softer silhouette, we’re in love with the Talulah Faithful Maxi. Crafted from spectacular sheer fabric in a pretty rose print, this dress makes an ultra stylish statement.

Keep the look floaty and feminine with nude strap heels, cascading curls and a dusty gold clutch. Or, add our Pierre Balmain blazer, killer heels and a sharp-edged clutch for a look as that’s as fierce as it is feminine.

Lovely in Lace

Strictly speaking, pastel pink and lace belong in the category of all things summer. But we’re making an exception for the Self Portrait Azalea dress. And with intricate cut-out lace, a sweetheart bodice and striking scalloped hem – who could blame us?

Taking cues from the red carpet with a wearable spin, it’s no wonder A-listers are lining up to wear the Self-Portrait line.

Toughen up the style by pairing it with a cropped leather jacket and ankle boots, or keep it pretty with nude pointed heels, a cropped white blazer and our Morgan and Taylor White Aisha Fascinator at the Autumn Races.

Juxtapose the feminine shape with bold black heels or add a touch of old world glamour with dangling earrings.

Pink Pared Back

Who said pink had to be girly? Perfect for the colour-shy, the Talulah Sunday Ruffle Dress is a near-nude shade on the colour wheel.

With a streamlined shape, ruffle sleeves and an off the shoulder silhouette – this dramatic dress means business.

Take it up a notch with a choker and strappy black block heels or let the dress do the talking with simple styling elements. A white clutch adds subtle contrast while accessories in silver tones complement this soft colour. Finish off the look and choose a nude heel that elongate the legs.

Style Statement

While not technically a shade of pink, we couldn’t resist adding the irresistible Talulah Without You Midi dress to the list.

Cast in an autumn friendly coral hue, this pretty number is complete with a sculptural silhouette, striking off-the shoulder neckline, flattering pencil skirt and fluted hem.

Vamp up the look with strappy black heels, dangling earrings and a dash of red lippie, or keep it simple and pretty for the Autumn Racing Carnival with black ankle boots, an envelope clutch and a cashmere throw for when air gets nippy.

Pink’s in for Autumn

No longer limited to the walls of our childhood bedrooms, pink is back in every shade and shape. And with an approving nod from cool girls like Kendall and Gigi, we’re predicting this pretty colour trend will be a mainstay of 2017. Whether you love a punchy pop of pink, a powdery pastel or a more subdued shade, we guarantee there’s a perfect pink dress for you.
