Hot pink


While I love The Cambridge Satchel Company's Tangerine Tango bag, pink is my first choice of colour, from my own fluoro-pink satchel to my pink Whistles Carrie skirt to my new pink Nike Free Run+ 3 running shoes.

First, let's get this straight – I'm not a head-to-toe princess-y pink kind of girl. Nor, contrary to this picture, is my wardrobe overflowing with items in pink. But I am partial to the colour, especially as an accent or as a bold, bright pop. What about you? What colour defines your style?

Pink and grey is one of my favourite colour combos, so I'll be wearing a grey marl sweat top from Whistles (£50) with my Carrie skirt; Gap's grey jersey T-shirt maxi dress (£29.95) with my Cambridge satchel (I've got the electric-blue version and it's so comfy), and a grey tee and shorts with my Nike running shoes (I've started running again in an attempt to get bikini-ready!).

Obviously, the shoes and satchel are available now if you want your own pop of pink, while Topshop does a very similar pleat skirt. It's £25 in the sale, reduced from £48, and has side splits, front and back.

You can get the Nike Free Run+ 3 running shoes (£80) in a choice of eight colours, or you can design your own colour scheme using the NikeiD customisation tool. And the satchel comes in myriad colours from £74, with four fluoro choices from £105.

Meanwhile, spring/summer 2012's reincarnation of the Carrie skirt at Whistles is called Lottie. She comes in a pale blue and is reduced in the sale from £110 to £65.

Lastly, for Cambridge Satchel fans, check out its clearance page. Seconds, with varying degrees of flaws, are offered at reduced prices, from £50. Let me know if you find anything.

    1. Hi Sallytangle,

      The seconds on The Cambridge Satchel Company are worth checking out. It would be good if there was a picture, though, to see the extent of the imperfections.

      Oh, and I've seen floral-print Cambridge satchels in the past. Zatchels does some, too.

  3. Gorgeous colours! I love pink accessories but find it harder to fit into my wardrobe of black and navy - need to branch out!

    1. Hi Katie,

      I think neon pink looks great with navy. Give it a try! Start small with an accent of pink such as a belt or scarf and see how you get on.

  4. Nikeid is a concept which I was not aware of. If known earlier, I would have definitely tried it out before my last purchase. Your pink choice looks really stunning. Even I am a pink person and would like to have any items in pink. If I had this pink Nike shoe I would have opted for an all white outfit. Something like the watermark daisy dress from whistle, or a scoop neck pocket T from Gap. But off late I have started a liking towards UGG boots. For the pink fans there is even a sparkle pink available in this collection. Do check it out online.
