Look pretty in pastels
Flattering pastel styles bring a touch of spring to any season. Select pieces in rose, beige, smoke blue or mint - all are delicate but still give a bright and fresh colour accent to an outfit, whilst being elegant and easy to combine. Pastels suit all styles and come in materials suitable for all seasons creating versatile and easy-to-wear pieces. A pastel colour can be added in a variety of ways, be it a few key pieces, that combine easily with other colours. Or choose all-over pastel for a light and feminine outfit. Or add a touch of pastel to any outfit with a muted toned accessory, that will brighten up darker coloured looks.
Timeless cashmere classics, blouses, tunics, down jackets or fashionable accessories all come in soft pastel colours this season. The gentle colours such as camel, stone, light grey or taupe can be matched together easily and will look fresh and feminine.
Or for an elegant, pure look combine a pastel blazer or woollen coat with white trousers or other white basics. This easy of wear is what makes pastel colours so versatile and essential to have in this season's wardrobe.
All- over pastel
For striking and contemporary outfit, combine pastel pieces to create a full outfit. Choose pastels in a soft, flowing material on top, and pair with either casual trousers or smart, wide-legged trousers in a matching pastel colour. Keep accessories simple and subtle to complete the look. Make sure when combining pastels to only use one or two tones of the same colour, so the look doesn't become overwhelming.
For a head-turning outfit, combine pastel statement pieces with darker shades from the same colour family. For example, look chic in a rose shirt and coat combined with luxurious Bordeaux colour trousers. An outfit such as this can be worn anywhere from the office to evening events and is quintessentially elegant and stylish.
The final touch
A simple, plain outfit can be brought to life with the addition of a colourful pastel accessory. It can transform a business suit into an on-trend, fashionable business look. Patent leather pumps or loafers with a bow in a soft rose colour add a splash of colour.
Add other pastel colours to any outfit with a pale blue handbag and it will brighten up any look. Or add a snowy white scarf or hat in the winter to keep the pastel theme throughout the seasons.
