Trend Alert: Coral

I am really loving the current trend for all things coral. For those of us who aren't that fond of pink, coral is an accessible way to feel feminine and spring like. Coral is flattering on all skin tones, and whilst it typically has a more lighthearted, holiday vibe, I reckon you could you could work it into a formal wardrobe with careful selection of the right pieces.

How do you wear coral...?
You can of course wear head-to-toe coral, if you are having as much of a passion for the colour as I am. But in the unlikely event that you want to dilute it just a little bit, coral seems to work well with cream, grey, and (my other favourite) indigo blue.
You can go for just a small accent, a whole block of colour, or even patterned separates. Stripes are always good.
How do you wear yours?
