Pink is one of this seasons favourite colours

Fashion for women 40+ Pink jackets 2015


Pink has continued to be one of the most popular colours over the last few seasons. It has lost its “little girl image” and grown up to become a fashionable choice in the boardroom as well as the street. Worn by Christine LaGarde and the Duchess of Cambridge it represents authority with a feminine touch.

I like to buy one investment statement piece per season and this time I have chosen a vibrant tailored jacket by Joseph (I bought it a few months ago and it now only seems to be available in a paler pink option).

    I love that shade of pink and it looks amazing on you! I am glad pink has got its “legs”; there is a shade for everyone that makes them, well, look like they’re in the pink!

    I love that vibrant fuchsia pink! It’s a shade that suits everyone and you look great in it. It’s much nicer than pale pastel pink.

    Oh, you do look chic !
    We are in a very rainy late autumn here in New Zealand . I do hope pink is in fashion here in the Spring.

    How lovely you look. This vibrant shade of pink is so YOU! It would be deadly on me. I love the way you’ve dressed it up and dressed it down. One of the great lessons of owning a great wardrobe piece….versatility.

    Cheers, M-T

    Love vibrant tones and this is perfect. A dear friend of mine and a 5 year breast cancer survivor proudly wears a beautiful bright pink boucle jacket…that she found in the Goodwill!!!

    I am having a bit of a pink moment myself. I think it looks really nice against platinum and silver hair. It’s one of those colors that everyone looks good in, even guys!

    Love the jacket! I’ve seen lots of pink in the stores, but it seems to be mostly a blush pink. With my coloring, I think I need a bluer pink to flatter me. Still looking for the right piece.
