Pastel Perfection

May 2, 2014 2:30 pm

This spring look forward to peeling off your winter layers and slipping into macaroon pastel shades and lace pairings. Designers went for a modern twist on the traditional pastel palette by extending it to lace, prints and swaths of organza. Burberry was right on the mark with its runway collection, featuring a mixture of gentle shades from pink to pistachio with an opulent selection of lace. A candy-coloured floral appliqué foldover clutch adds an instant pick-me-up.

HOW TO WEAR PASTELS

The freshest way to wear them is top-to-toe in one hue. Look to fabrics like lace and leather to add an edge to pretty pastels. Texture is critical. Looking to tone down the colour? Start with separates and add in pale hues or rich greys, like slate. Want to take the trend one step at a time?

Slip on a pretty soft sorbet hue in a strappy sandal or pick up a handbag to update your accessories.

Wearing it head to toe. Celebrities always gravitate to this look every season as it’s easy to dress up or down.
