  • 4 SPRING LOOKS FOR ALL OCCASIONS

    Posted: Oct 11 2019

    The end of the year is quickly approaching (a bit too quickly for our liking!) and with it, the season of parties, holidays, racing carnivals, happy hours and general socialising. This means it's almost time to start thinking about our outfits. Of course, it's unrealistic for most of us to wear a new dress to every occasion, so we're big fans of a versatile outfit that can be easily dressed up and down, and given a completely different look depending on what accessories you pair with it.

    Our Set Free Midi Dress is perfect for drinks at the bar with girlfriends when worn with a pair of strappy sandals and a beaded bag, but also works perfectly for the office styled with a structured bag and kitten heels. Our Moscato Mini Dress looks divine with a golden tan and heels, and can also be dressed down with your fave white sneakers.

  • YOU GLOW, GIRL

    Posted: Oct 10 2019

    We teamed up with our friends at Name-Glo to give one lucky USA winner the chance to win this custom Neon-Sign!! All you have to do to enter is:

    1. Follow @nameglo and @official_minkpink on Instagram; and

    2. Answer a couple of multiple choice questions in in our Instagram Stories

    We will then select a random winner from everyone who got all the answers correct. The answers can be found in this blog post, so make sure you read this and then head on over to our Instagram to enter! GOOD LUCK!

    MINKPINK: What's your favorite color neon to work with?

    Name Glo: We plead the fifth on this one - we can't pick a favorite! We are rainbow gals after all.

    MP: What's the most popular neon sign in your store?

    NG: Most of our work is totally custom, but our "Custom Established" LED neon is super popular right now!

    MP: How did you get into designing neon signs?

    NG: Funny story actually. One of our co-founders Sas wanted to create a custom piece for her newborn nephew, and had no clue where to get it. She googled and wasn't satisfied with the results, it felt super confusing and she felt out of her league. She commissioned her friend from high school, Lena, to bring her neon dream to life. The two realized they wanted to help create a new way to think about neon for all to enjoy!

    MP: What was your favorite thing about creating our sign?

    NG: We loved the idea of using the plexi in a cool shape that informed the design overall. And of course the best part is plugging it in, and seeing it literally light up the room. It never gets old!

    MP: How long does it generally take to create a sign?

    NG: Somewhere between 3-5 weeks is what we generally like to plan for.

  • BUCKET HATS - THE CONTROVERSIAL SPRING TREND

    Posted: Oct 08 2019

    Not since 2018's ugly sneaker has there been such a divisive trend. And like with the ugly sneaker, you either loved it, hated it, or started seeing it so much you actually started to like it. Enter the controversial accessory for 2019 - the bucket hat.

    For many of us, the return of the bucket hat brought back many memories of dorky 90s outfits and being made to wear them as kids against our will. But as those kids grow up and everything 90s is cool again, the bucket hat has emerged once more. Spotted on the runways and out on the streets at fashion week, not only is the bucket hat acceptable headwear, but it's downright fashionable (not to mention practical - hello sun protection!).

    The best part of a micro trend becoming mainstream is there are so many different fabrics and textures to choose from, so you're guaranteed to find one to fit your style. Try a straw hat to dip your toe in the trend, or go all-out with tie-dye for the ultimate summer 2019 look.

    We love how some of our MINKPINK girls have been wearing the bucket hat lately. Which is your fave?

  • FIFTY SHADES OF GREEN

    Posted: Oct 03 2019

    Forget millennial pink, green is definitely the colour of the season. Acidic citrus or calming sage; classic khaki or deep emerald, there's a shade to suit every style and skin tone. To update your wardrobe for the new season, adding a few punchy shades of green will freshen up your entire look.

    Our tips for styling green? Zingy citrus shades look best in small doses, toned down with calming beige and crisp white. Our Citrumello Twist Back Top pairs back perfectly with our Alibi Denim Midi Skirt or Sundancer Maxi Skirt. Khaki colours are practically a neutral as they go with everything - wear our Rita Elastic Waist Skirt with a graphic tee or a cute crop in a contrasting shade of green, or wear the look head to toe in our Eastside Wrap Midi Dress for a chic look to take you from work to weekend. Lean into the edgy look of our emerald Rockstar Polka Dot Dress with black ankle boots and hoop earrings for a rock-chic vibe.
