Today I’m continuing my Pandora Summer 2016 reviews, with some inspiration featuring the new limited edition Honeysuckle Pink leather bracelet! This follows my review of the LE Light Blue Leather from the same collection, so this is kind of a second part to that post. ^^
I have been really enjoying the Summer collection this year, which is unusual for me – I’m not usually big on beachy themes and summer brights, but this year’s collection is so much more versatile. I still have more charms on my wish list and more reviews coming up for Summer – including the Pandora Club charm 2016!
Pandora Honeysuckle Pink Leather Bracelet Review
I love the colours that they chose this year, as while they’re pretty and fun, they’re also versatile enough to be worn all year round. I won’t spend time talking about the technical details, such as the new clasp or lack of threads, as I covered that in my review of the light blue leather. :)
I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw it in store, as this is yet another product where the stock image doesn’t do it justice. The colour again looks quite flat, and almost reddish, which is just not true of the bracelet in person!
Don’t be fooled by the stock image, or even some of the campaign images however – when you see it in the flesh, it’s a lovely raspberry pink! It has a nice metallic sheen to it, and the warm colour contrasts beautifully against the silver leather. It’s easily bright enough to be worn on its own, without any other bracelets or charms.
The nice thing about having such a vibrant pink is that you can make of it what you will – you can make it seem more delicate by pairing it with some lighter complementary colours, or dress it up to emphasise its bold colour. With those thoughts in mind, on to the stylings!
First of all, it looks amazing with the new light blue leather! I love the look of them put together without any charms at all.
The colours are so different and yet really complementary.
The other styling that we knew would be a winner from the get-go is this bracelet and the lovely Flower Garden murano. Both feature that deep rich fuchsia pink and bright colour. <3 Here I’ve kept it simple with the murano and the two new silicone Primrose clips. You could also maybe try adding a little bit of green for a really tropical look – maybe the green Petite Facets or the Fascinating Olive.
When you put the blue Butterfly Kisses with tropical charms, I always think of rainforests and gorgeous exotic butterflies – the pink leather really livens up and gives that summery edge to these soft spring pastels. :D
Finally, this is how I’m currently wearing my honeysuckle leather. I’ve loved the Coral Looking Glass murano for a long time but haven’t known what to wear it with; this pink bracelet is my answer!
Another stunning leather bracelet option from Pandora; it has the same issue with threads as the light blue leather, but the colour is so gorgeous that I can get over that for now. You just have to be very careful taking these on and off with charms on them! It’s nice to get more of a hot pink as a bracelet option, too, as Pandora’s previous pink leathers have all been rather pastel and pale in shade.
The Pandora Honeysuckle Pink Leather is $50 USD or £45. If you’re in the UK, you can buy this charm along with the rest of the Pandora Summer collection from authorised retailer John Greed.
Did you get this bracelet, or is it on your wish list? How would you style it?
