Pretty in Pastels

[ux_latest_products columns=”4″ title=”Check our Latest products!”]

It’s safe to say that Spring is in the air with pastels of every hue bursting out from SS12 collections. From mint green to soft, dusky pink, this super girly colour palette has grown up and is now the must-have sweet treat for any budding fashionista.

The question is how to incorporate this trend into your day to day wardrobe? Well, fear not, there are plenty of options ranging from all-out romantic, vintage glamour to delicate casual wear. And if you aren’t sure that head to toe pastel is going to work for your colouring, then why not rock the look by simply carrying an over-sized vinyl leather handbag in a subtle, strawberry ice-cream colour or slipping your feet into a pair of sky blue ballet pumps?

For those ready to experiment, why not start with a cute daytime look of a sheer, peach pastel blouse paired with a flowing, pleated skirt in a contrasting shade such as lavender? Mixing colours and textures such as lace, silk and chiffon is one of the key ways to wear this trend – think feminine and relaxed when it comes to your silhouette. Adding delicate gold jewellery and nude heels will transform this look from day to night.

And if you have a more upmarket evening event, why not channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw by heading down the vintage route and wear a tulle ballet dress in mint green, perhaps with delicate pearl buttons on the bodice? With palest pink silk gloves, neutral accessories and a faux fur wrap to keep out the cold, you are sure to be the pastel belle of the ball.

When it comes to dressing this look for work, you may not be too keen to sit at your desk wearing lavender lace, so why not try a candy coloured blazer over a plain white tee with a pair of simple, faded, grey crop trousers? Perfectly sweet, smart and cool for those summer months in the office.

Of course, pastel tones don’t necessarily have to be worn in a soft, girly style. Why not try and toughen the look up somewhat by wearing a pair of pale, lemon coloured pasteljeans teamed with lace up black suede boots, a band t-shirt and a chunky silver cuff on both wrists? Giving your pastels a slightly grunge twist is a definite style statement.

All in all, pastel is a versatile trend that looks set to melt the heart of even the toughest critic and will hopefully lead to you feeling ‘Pretty in Pink’ (or lavender, or baby blue for that matter!).
