Ok, here’s a little next season secret we’re letting slip: pink is in, and in a big way. The autumn/winter 2013 runways were awash with the colour, which ran the gamut from powdery pink at Jonathan Saunders and Simone Rocha to the fiercest fuschia at Lanvin and Antipodium.
And wanting to get in on next season’s colour action now is only natural for us fashion insiders, so here’s a desirable shot of the perky colour for with this week’s Steep vs. Cheap.
Injecting our wardrobes with a wash of much-needed colour, whilst possibly forcing us into near financial ruin, is this week’s steep choice – Roksanda Ilincic’s Lambton wool-crepe dress. Nabbing this draped-to-perfection LPD will require forking out a princely £705, but if you’ve got the dosh spare then why not? Say hello to new season compliments now!
Fretting over faltering on your fashion status due to a lack of wardrobe-expanding funds? Fear not, because we’ve tracked down an equally eye-popping version of the LPD on the high street. Cashing in at a pleasant £195, we’re digging the Alice silk dress from girl-on-a-budget haunt, Reiss. Affording you statement back detail and delivering a jolt of raspberry in pure silk for under £200 – win win!
Will you splash out, or curb the cash frittering?
