Ballet pink has become a firm fashion favourite – these are the pieces to snap up now

Posted by for Fashion

Millennial pink is no more; this spring, it’s all about the rise and rise of ballet pink.

If the endorsements of celebrities on the red carpet are anything to go by, there’s one colour and one colour only that’s pirouetting its way to the forefront of desire: ballet pink.

Championed by Zoë Kravitz and Lily James on the eve of one of the most highly publicised Oscar ceremonies in recent years, the pale pastel pink has had something of a do-over.

Of course, it’ll come as no surprise to eagle-eyed fashion fans that the hue has seen its status elevated in recent years. Given fashion’s firm embrace of ballet flats – the long-maligned pumps have been reimagined for a younger audience by Simone Rocha and Maison Margiela – and the small-screen return of Carrie Bradshaw and her beloved sartorial accoutrement, the tutu – the rise of ballet pink was written in the style stars.

Contrary to its punchier pink counterparts, which were similarly awash at this weekend’s Grammy awards, ballet pink is subtle without being soft, and pared-back without being plain. In short, it’s what Easter eggs are to April: a works-for-everyone, one-size-fits-all no-brainer.
