Pink pieces we love

We can’t help it -- pink is (and always has been) one of our favorite colors, but we understand it can be a little on the cutesy side. With that in mind, this week on Pretty Little Things (where we bring you the best of the best online), we’re looking into chic, sophisticated ways to wear our go-to hue.

Toms Eliana pink suede ballet flats

Pretty flats

Whether you’re walking to meet your BFFs for brunch, running to catch a bus or biking around town, flats are a must for comfort on the move. We’re currently coveting this simple but elegant pair of Toms Eliana pink suede ballet flats for easy, on-the-go summer style (toms.com, $79). Pair these fashionable flats with anything from linen trousers to sundresses.

get-noticed pink pair

Sexy shades

Trade your basic black or tortoiseshell shades for this get-noticed pink pair (katespade.com, $128). The sexy, oversize sunglasses with vibrant pink frames are perfect for adding some flirty flair to your summer look. Not only will you be protecting your peepers (a summer must), but you’ll look great no matter what you wear them with.

dip dye T-shirt

Dip dye T-shirt

You can never have too many T-shirts. Whether you’re hitting the beach or heading to the mall, the easy-wearing tee never goes out of style. We jumped at the chance to add this lightweight pale pink dip dye T-shirt to our summer wardrobe (topshop.com, $36). We’ll be throwing it on with faded cut-offs and wearing with our favorite strappy sandals.

Sophisticated satchel

Sophisticated satchel

While we admittedly own more purses than we need, it’s still hard to pass up something cute to add to the (ever-growing) collection. Our next purchase: this stylishly structured pink leather satchel that perfectly balances sophistication with a touch of whimsy (asos.com, $224). This bag wouldn’t look out of place at a business meeting or the office.

Denim jacket

Denim jacket

There’s no rule that states denim jackets need to be blue. In fact, we love the idea of denim in a rainbow of hues. That’s why we couldn’t help but fall for this cropped denim jacket in on-trend pastel pink (dorothyperkins.com, $27). Pair with basic black, gray and even neon.

Bold bangle

Bold bangle

No matter where you go or what you’re wearing, adding a pop of color in the summer is never a bad idea. One of the easiest ways to do that is with a piece of statement jewelry like this vibrant hand poured enamel bangle in fuchsia and orange (shop.stelladot.com, $98).
