This Friday on 10th June is World Cancer Day and unfortunately we are all aware of someone who has been affected by cancer in our lives. Breast cancer affects nearly one in eight women during their lives and it kills more women in the United States than any cancer except lung cancer. The good news is that many times, especially if a lump is caught early, women with breast cancer go on to live full, healthy lives after treatment. So, to celebrate World Cancer Day we thought we would bring you the brightest, pinkest garments to remind you that breast cancer can be beaten.
We love this fabulous coral sleeveless cape tunic top, available from River Island at a steal at only £34.99. Made from 100% polyester, in sizes 8 to 16, it is guaranteed to keep you cool on those hot summer nights. Perfect for a night out clubbing or a lazy day on the beach, sipping cocktails. Team with white skinny jeans and gold bling to vamp it up, or dress it down with denim and a straw hat for sunny days. And why not compliment it with this cute Pink Floral Print Fan, also from River Island for only £3.99. Keep those pesky wasps and bees away and remain cool as a cucumber whilst you daintily waft yourself a refreshing breeze. Get the look from riverisland.com.
Take a step back into the 50’s with this Knitted Rose Cardigan with all over spot heart print, only £30 from Topshop. Gorgeous bright fuschia pink with black hearts, this is perfect for covering up on those cold summer evenings. 100% cotton and machine washable, wear with full skirts to really get into the look or mix and match with jeans for a casual style. Stripes never go out of fashion in our books and if you are heading for the beach this summer you can’t go wrong with this fabulous Pink Fluorescent Stripe Bikini with padded cups and tie side pant, also from Topshop. For £26 it is made from 92% polyamide and elastane and is machine washable. You’ll be sure to catch every-ones eye if you dare to step out in this little number. From topshop.com.
You cannot mention summer without talking about maxi dresses and Warehouse have this amazing Pink Bandeau Maxi dress for only £30. It has a flattering strapless neckline, is cinched in at the waist and has a flowing skirt. Accessorise with big bold statement jewellery and big bags for the ultimate stylish look. Warehouse are also having a clear-out sale on dresses so check out this Pleat Yoke Swing Dress for a different take on a classic LBD. Apparently it is from their Winter Collection but team it with some gladiator sandals and a straw bag and I think you could get away with it. Reduced from £60 to £25, the dark pink dress is made from polyester and has sheer long sleeves to keep you warm. Available from warehouse.co.uk.
Finally bags, my favourites always are from River Island and I don’t just want, I need this Bright Pink Satchel Bag with contrasting buckle and straps detail at £36.99. It’s ideal for any occasion and you can team it up with all hues of pinks which makes it very usable. Or, for a more subtle look, how about this Double Pocket Pink Tote Bag for £39.99. This light pink double pocket tote bag can be used for a casual look and is perfect for the beach, shopping trips or a day out on the town.
So remember the date, Friday 10th June and wear pink in recognition of breast cancer and World Cancer Day.
