2022 has seen the rebirth of everyone’s new favourite colour: pink. If you weren’t already a fan, we are in no doubt that you may have changed your tune after the colour’s resurgence this year. It’s been everywhere on everyone, and it’s sure to continue ’til at least the end of the year. The question on everyone’s lips: do you have it in pink?
THE HISTORY OF PINK
Pink is undoubtedly a colour of joy and positivity, things we desperately craved 2022 to be full of. After two years of coping within the pandemic, the resurgence of pink has brought about joyful new beginnings. The trend-forecasting company WGSN decided that ‘Orchid Flower’ is 2022’s colour, a gorgeous saturated magenta that boosts our mood. House Beautiful describe this shade as: “Inspired by the tropical orchid plant, with its long-lasting flowers and distinct scent, this trans-seasonal hue is versatile and luxurious, with a strong connection to nature.“
THREADBARE’S TAKE ON PINK
We love a good shade of pink at Threadbare. The summer season saw the launch of our pink floral dresses, and pink blazers, while autumn is here with knitwear in soft hues that are easy to style. No matter your preferred tone of pink, come up rosy in the perfect hue. Working pink into an outfit doesn’t have to be scary. Simply add a knit in a soft sugary shade to denim jeans and a gilet for a casual look that’s fashionable but not too daring. Or maybe you don’t fear being bold and you’d sport a bright berry borg coat to finish off your outfit. See our top picks of Threadbare’s pink pieces below.
As the colder weather is beginning to set in, make a solid choice and opt for a there-for-you cardigan. This gorgeous first-light pink wrap cardigan is a firm favourite of ours for this season and beyond. Styled with blue jeans, it’s the perfect casual cardigan for everyday wear, but you could also layer it over a black bodycon dress for a pretty workwear outfit that’s classy and simple. Pair with: denim jeans and a black gilet
As seen on Ranvir Singh on ITV’s Lorraine, our button down midi dress is sure to bring pure joy. It hits that saturated orchid pink that WGSN reference so is the best dress to hit the 2022 trend. Perfect for occasions, parties or when you’ve been invited as a wedding guest, this pink number is a head-turning dress that’s sure to leave you feeling as pretty as you look. La vie en rose personified.
A blazer is both a smart and stylish way to inject pink into your wardrobe. Now more than ever, power play dressing is top of the league for workwear, especially as most people have now returned to the office and WFH is no more. With this, we know dressing for the office again can be daunting, so read our workwear tips but also fight the fear with a colour-pop blazer. Our blazer styles are the perfect desk-to-dinner pieces for midweek plans, but will be statement pieces for weekend events too.
Bring a new edge to your look with our cropped blazer, in a sugary pink that’s so on trend.

Curved seaming on the chest adds shaping and slightly padded shoulders add simple yet elegant volume in the right place. Two mini pockets perfect for your lipstick. Wear with leather look pants and a racerback crop top for night out glam, or for daytime pair with a striped tee and light blue denim.
