The new season is awash with a sea of pink. The colour was pretty prominent in the London shows back in February with the likes of Mulberry, Moschino Cheap&Chic and Simone Rocha catching my eye with a scrummy mixture of powdery and sour shades. All of which compelled me to confront my fears and embrace pink, subsequently starting a hot affair that I just can't get enough of.
Pink is a daunting choice at first, but by taking inspiration from the androgynous trends lurking around it doesn't seem oh so scary after all. For example, bright pink pieces fit right in with the 90s grunge attack whilst dusky tones put a feminine spin on the Mod street mood. Of course, the colour focus still hails pure femininity with sweet sherbet and candies nodding to the suburban 50s.

If you do want to try out a bit of pink as the new AW13 season approaches head to wonderful Toppers for some great picks. After clearly taking inspiration from their high fashion sister Topshop Unique, I feel the British highstreet saviours have served up a beautiful array of choice.

The fluffy tee has to be my ultimate buy of the season though, as not only does it look insanely comfortable but it also ticks off the texture craze flooding the fashion world at the moment. Gorgeous.
