It's no secret that Scandinavia is one of the world's most stylish regions. So, naturally, all eyes were on the recent Copenhagen Fashion Week to suss out the latest trends on the street. What did we learn this time? That pink is definitely still a thing. While the showgoers offered a varied palette that ranged from hot pink to the palest rose, the shade that really stood out to us was powder pink. Seen on everything from pyjama suits to gauzy dresses, we've decoded the pink dress code of dos and don'ts to keep it interesting (not infantile).

5 CONVINCING CASES FOR POWDER PINK

On Wednesdays, we wear...
Big girl's blouse
We've fallen hard for this silky pink poets blouse with its oversized cut, billowy sleeves and ruched wrist detail. But what makes it even cooler is the fact that this street-styler has paired it with bang-on-trend legging shorts, instead of a tailored trouser. Accessorise with a simple gold necklace and hot pink sneakers – and that Ganni bag, again – before getting your sidekick to don a pair of fluoro pink sneakers, too. His and hers, x1000.
Elle Woods ain't got nothing on this street-style star. Wearing her ribbon-tie waist satin jumpsuit with a masculine pink blazer shoulder-robed over the top, a ladylike bag with a contrast pastel strap and bright white sunnies keep this looking cool. To round it off, follow her lead with stacked rings and necklaces bracelets before throwing your hair in a low bun for the ultimate laid-back finish.
