No longer just for children and mothers-in-law, pastels are firmly back on the fashion map. White-infused topaz, blues that are almost greys and cute canary yellows — mix and match them all!
So voraciously have we been lusting after the brights that we’ve begun to wholly neglect the paler colour palette. Well, now is your opportunity to redress the balance.
Making use of the pastel spectrum has to have been the trend of the Spring/Summer runways. Everyone from Miu Miu to Calvin Klein, Lanvin to Tommy Hilfiger made pastels a feature of their collection.
Whether it was matching twin-sets, fifties-inspired shift dresses or something a little bit more avant-garde, a huge variety of pastel looks made their way down the runway.
Here in the Woman This Month office, we have been cooing over the Phillip Lim collection — he has given a fantastically upbeat twist to last year’s minimalism.
So, forget the colour clashes, ignore the crazy prints and head straight for something icy and pale. You don’t always have to make a loud statement in order to stand out.
