Guest Post: The Problem With Pink

As some of you may know, Lauren is still living it up in South Africa and I’m bogged down with work in Costa Del Coventry (seems fair RIGHT?), We’ve therefore enlisted the help of one of our other favourite bloggers Rachel, who’s kindly wrote this guest post for us. CHEERS PAL!
Hello lovelies! I’m Rach from over at Me, Myself And…, and I’ve stopped by Stylingo to guest post for the lovely Claire and Lauren! I’m here today to offer support to those who are still feeling a tad nervous about the pink trend. Bring it in ladies…

So – PINK IS STILL IN. Who saw that coming? Certainly not me.

For someone who loves pastel colours, I always tend to shy away from the candy floss hue. Cobalt blue, neon yellow, lime green – I’ve got em all! But fuchsia pink? No thanksss.

Being the brave creature that I am, I’ve pushed my irrational fear of pink to the side and had a look at some of Asos‘ newest offerings. I have to say, I’m sort of coming round to the idea…

I had originally gone looking for some bits and pieces from the website just to show what was on offer, but I’m not going to lie – I saved ALL for later. How much later? Payday later! Don’t get me wrong, I’m still nervous about it all arriving and looking completely ridiculous on me. I can’t help it if I think even the slightest bit of pink being incorporated into my outfit is going to result in a striking resemblance to Frenchy from Grease.

So, if you’re anything like me – crazy – then here are a few tips to get you through the pink trend…

You’re not sure which shade of pink will suit you
Tip: Chances are, none of them – so just pick whichever will look nicest sitting at the end of your bed, tag still attached, for the next 6-8 weeks.

You think it looks too girly on you
Tip: Grunge it up with chunky boots. If that doesn’t work – grow a beard.

Hardly anything in your wardrobe will go with pink
Tip: Throw it out. Throw it all out. Then buy more pink stuff. Hell, why not just drop out of beauty school and rename yourself Frenchy while you’re at it.

You think it makes you look like a walking, talking marshmallow.
Tip: Walk around with a bag of Flumps permanently fixed to your hand – anyone who can’t differentiate between the two doesn’t deserve a place in your life.

Happy Shopping!

A huge thank you to Rachel for guest posting for us today!
