February is predominantly a code red situation. We barely whispered ‘Happy New Year’ when heart shaped lollipops and red roses began making an appearance and it’s been a heavy dose of scarlet fever ever since. At WSd we’re big fans of the crimson hue, I mean did you see the Mos Mosh tailored pant suit? To die for. Synonymous with love and affection it’s little wonder that  splashes of red featured heavily  in last week’s self love gift guide and thanks to the fiery shade dominating the autumn/winter 2017 shows it’s been this season’s colour du jour.  Well it’s safe to say that the ubiquitous colour is going nowhere fast but cupid has also got us hooked on a new blush crush. Here’s our top picks of swoon inducing pieces in store…

The Scotch & Soda story is one of pastel perfection and has got things covered when it comes to adding a flush of blush into your wardrobe via hard working pieces that are beyond worthy of your investment. Candy pink has been having a moment but as spring draws nearer we’re gravitating towards a more muted version in the form of dusty rose. The muted tone adorns this Scotch & Soda long sleeved top which has a soft glimmer thanks to a subtle lurex fabric. The relaxed fit and striped and ribbed neckline adds a sport luxe vibe to this piece which adds a tougher edge to the romantic hue.

Masters of the blouse, Scotch & Soda has struck gold (or should we say blush?!) with this printed version. Their star and leopard print sheer number was last season’s most coveted piece in store and we think this spring update will have just the same effect. The bold print that adorns the whimsical style cut ensures this blouse sits on the right side of girly but there’s simply no denying the unashamedly pretty nature of this piece. Team with a pair of Mos Mosh Athena super skinnies and your fave heels for an instant date night look then why not mess with clashing prints and add a dash of drama to after dark antics in the form of a Boho Betty animal print clutch.

The Ultimate Blouse

Which one would you choose?

Showcasing the versatility of the print, the Scotch & Soda scarf continues the blush story. Styled with the same floral inspired print, this beauty is oh so soft to the touch and its crinkled quality makes it an effortless addition to any look. Team with a tough leather jacket to create a playful dichotomy between biker girl and girly girl.  

Comfort in a scarf

The highly anticipated fresh drop of Cluse has landed in store and the sumptuous collection of watches features a dreamy mix of coppery rose gold, classic gold and cool silver combined with pantone’s finest pastel shades. The show stopper to feature in this week’s blush blog is the Minuit La Perle- the epitome of ‘modern minimalism’. A contemporary time piece, this beauty combines clean edged rose gold metallic hardware with a natural mother of pearl face and a stone grey strap. Muted tones that pack quite the arm candy punch.

Now that athleisure has firmly established itself the trends that we’re seeing on the catwalk are translating into our work out gear and taking it beyond the fitness studio to become part of our daily look.  The Yoga Shed Peace vest takes on blush in the form of soft peach and will look just as worthy teamed with a pair of Mos Mosh jeans and Hudson kicks  as it will with pair of Yoga Leggs and bare feet. The sumptuous shade has a somewhat calming effect and is the perfect companion to your shavasana.

Peachy Peace

Thanks to sensuous textures and plenty of shimmer, the MINKPINK jumpsuit and cropped co-ord tee proves that blush is by no means boring. Team with a pair of crisp white kicks for a fresh daytime look or pair with simple strappy heels to elevate this beauty to dance floor status.

We’ve never been ones to stick to the rules so deviate from the candy colours dictated by cupid and get your blush on…
