  • CULT MINKPINK DRESSES

    Posted: May 30 2019

    From florals to stripes, minis to midis, summer to winter, there's a dress for any occasion. Loved around the world, MINKPINK has created a fan base for their easy to wear, well priced, gorgeous dresses.
     
    Here we take you through key cult styles and why we love them.
     

    THE FLORAL MINI

    Balance out bare legs with a higher neckline or longer sleeves. We also love details such as a frill hem and sleeves, or double-breasted buttons to add personality. Pair with cowboy or ankle boots and a biker jacket or teddy coat for winter; or why not switch it up in Summer with a comfy pair of white sneakers and a basket bag.  

    THE PRINTED MIDI

    If a midi length is more your style, a sassy thigh split (or two!) and a deep v-neckline to break up the fabric for a sexy and contemporary look. Go for a classic black floral, or a bright punchy colour, such as the bright raspberry pink shade of our new Eclipsed Heart print (also available in a mini). Style for the weekend with sandals or sneakers and a denim jacket.

    THE SEXY SLIP

    The slip dress (and skirt!) is definitely the shape of 2019. It hugs and skims your curves in all the right places, making it a flattering style on every body type. Its versatility is part of the appeal, looking just as good dressed down as it does with a killer pair of heels for a night out. Try it with your fave white tee underneath, or with a turtleneck for winter.

    THE RESORT WRAP

    Classic and elegant yet sassy and playful, the wrap dress is a definite wardrobe staple. The tie feature means you can adjust the fit so it's just right. Whether you're an animal print or floral; or midi or mini kinda gal, our wrap dresses are the pieces you'll be reaching for over and over again.

    THE FITTED AND FLARED

    You can do no wrong with a fit and flare dress, as they're easy to wear and super flattering. Our new Crave You Stripe Rib Dress is an update on the classic shape, and features alternating horizontal and chevron stripes and a thick ribbed fabric. The mock turtleneck and three-quarter sleeves offset the short length and fitted style. If you're a fan, keep your eyes peeled as they always pop up in trend colours and delicious textured fabrics.

  • STATEMENT KNITS WE LOVE

    Posted: May 28 2019

    Stripes, chevron, animal print, oh my! Bright colours and fun prints are what MINKPINK is all about, and the latest range is no different. Our newest statement knits will brighten your life, keep you warm, and have you looking oh so chic this winter. This weather is dull, but your outfits don't have to be.

    The Bewilder Chevron Knit is a particular fave! Featuring a chevron print in rich shades of burgundy, blush pink and winter white, it looks fab with a leopard corduroy skirt or jeans for a subtle print clash, or let the knit do the talking all on its own.  

    Our Calipo Knit is as delicious as it looks. Mouth-watering shades of sunshine yellow, magenta and lilac combine into a perfectly oversized and cosy knit that's guaranteed to brighten even the coldest winter day. Be quick though, this little number has nearly sold out! Seems as though you guys love it as much as we do.

    Animal print is of course still huge this autumn/winter. Our Jamba Intarsia Knit is a fresh take on the trend, with a caramel-based zebra print and soft velour feel. Wear it with denim, over dresses or make it a statement with an all-white outfit. Best of all, it's under $100!  

    Stripes never go out of fashion, and our Show Up Sweater is an instant classic. Subtle red and green stripes are an easy way to incorporate a pop of colour to your winter outfits, and the cropped length keeps it feeling fresh. Pair with comfy blue jeans for an easy off-duty look. At only $69.95, this won't break the bank!

  • 4 WAYS TO MAKE EXERCISE FUN (NOT A CHORE)

    Posted: May 22 2019

    We all need to move our body for at least 30 minutes every day for optimal health, but let's face it, running on the treadmill is dead boring and makes 30 minutes feel like 3 hours. The best way to motivate yourself to exercise is to make it fun, and better yet, feel like you're not even exercising at all! We asked around the office here at MINKPINK HQ, and these are our top activities for making fitness fun:

    1. Dance class / Sober rave party / No Lights No Lycra

    Grab a friend and join a salsa, hip hop or even a pole dancing class for an amazing workout while also learning a fun new skill.

    If you love a dance party but don't love getting messy and staying out late, Daybreaker is an epic festival that takes place before sunrise, starting with a one hour yoga class followed by a two-hour high energy rave.

    If you don't really want anyone to see your daggy dance moves, No Lights No Lycra is held once a week in various locations around the world. It's a dance party held entirely in the dark, and it's all about free movement. It's fun and liberating and a great way to get in a workout without even feeling like you're exercising.

    2. Get outdoors

    Get out and explore the beautiful nature that's right on our doorstep and try kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, surfing, bush walking or cycling. Exercising while getting some fresh air and sunshine in some beautiful scenery? Yes please!

    3. Turn it into something social

    Instead of just doing out for dinner or cocktails with your mates, why not combine them with doing something active together? Holey Moley, the indoor mini golf club has locations popping up all over Australia, and Strike Bowling has lots of activities such as laser tag, escape rooms, karaoke and of course, bowling. It's a great way to bond and have fun, while still moving your body!

    4. Jump, bounce, climb

    Trampoline parks aren't just for kids - many of them also hold fitness classes for adults as well! These are serious workouts, all done on a trampoline. If that isn't a fun workout, we don't know what is. If you want to mix it up, most venues also have rock climbing and bouldering facilities, which are an amazing full-body workout, not to mention lots of fun. Once you're done, channel your inner child and jump into the foam pit (good luck getting out though!).
