Catwalk trend decoded: swinging pink dresses

Forget what you know about pink. It’s had a retro overhaul, thanks to the AW15 catwalks in fresh shades of bubble-gum, salmon and peach. At the top of the agenda? Sweet 60s shifts to wear day or date-night. See how Dolce & Gabbana won the catwalk, Saoirse Ronan made it her own in a cute Gucci number and what to buy to get in on the action.

Models floated down the Dolce & Gabbana catwalk in oh-so-pretty shift dresses with lace details hugging the sleeves, collar and hem in shades of strawberry milkshake.

Irish beauty Saoirse took direct inspiration from her Grand Budapest Hotel character in a frilled Gucci get-up that would make both Wes Anderson and Twiggy proud. Double bravo.

This collared shift dress = major retro wins + the preppy buttoned cuffs and floral panelling gives new-season bonus points. Pull on black patent boots and you've got a swinging 60s ensemble that ticks all the AW15 boxes.
