While Pantone may have declared Classic Blue as the ‘Colour Of The Year’ for 2020, we beg to differ, especially as we are seeing a significant influx of pink garments at the recent Spring/Summer ’20 collections and current Pre-Fall drops. It even seems as though the rosy hue is unabashedly reclaiming itself in the new decade – favoured by power figures from the likes of Chromatica singer-songwriter Lady Gaga to unlikely tastemaker PM Lee Hsien Loong. In tribute to this iconic colour that is reigning supreme this year, we share 10 chic picks to add to your wardrobe.
The category is… A bubble pink button-up meets a cinched belted waist situation with not one, but two handy pockets.

Revealed in the Spring/Summer 2020 collection, this delicate pink top is truly a keeper for the long-haul; a new classic that encapsulates modern feminity. We can only imagine how the translucent button-up would look stunning over a fancy lace bralette or longsleeved turtleneck.

Ganni corduroy shirt, $90, www.matchesfashion.com
Inspired by the costuming of Robert Altman’s film Western McCabe & Mrs. Miller, creative director Ditte Reffstrup decided to incorporate “the idea of all those ruffles and ’70s slouchiness” in her latest collection. Mirroring this concept is this piece that intertwines masculinity with its boxy silhouette and femininity with its frilled detailing.
