Pastel Wear This Spring/Summer 2017!

Spring has arrived and what more could we want than to give all you lovely people a guide into what colours are seen to be trending this Spring 2017!! The sun has been shining here in London and it’s time to rearrange our wardrobes!

Regardless on whether you like bold, basic or statement clothing there is always that little bit of space to squeeze in some pastel favourites! You can also mix your outfit with a few colourful bright bits – there are nooooo restrictions! It is important however to never go overboard with too many colours because it can easily be done. Pastels are an all-time fave for all ages because they can bring out the unique touch in your style – mature yet stylish. Spring and Summer is a time where you blend those winter colours and swing on some pastels– everyone has been incorporating pastel colours in their everyday wear and pastel colours have become an all-time preference!

So, can anyone pull it off or do you need to be an extreme fashionista? Well the answer is no because anyone can pull it off! You can dip into the trend with a pastel accessory, shoe or garment! There is no need to break the bank for this trend! Pastels are to be seen everywhere at the high street so you are guaranteed to have choice and leave content with your purchase!
I’m sure you are thinking well I’m not so much of a girly-girl to pull off such a trend?! Never underestimate pastels as they can be dressed down and dressed up no matter how light or dark the pastel shade. This trend has spread all over other styles, from minimalistic to office attire, tomboy to sports. Let’s not forget that there is something for everyone especially now with all the heavy embellishment people have and any skin tone looks good in pastel colours!

We need to start bringing these colours into the spring/summer season, soft colours fit the season colours bill!

Never leave your house looking dull again! AGAIN! Well that’s that now let’s move forward and drool over some well-planned out outfits!

Pastel colours are becoming more prominent in menswear nowadays, whereby athleisure – a combination of sports and casual wear are taking place. Men initially took over this trend through casual use wearing an outburst of pale colours such as rose, oatmeal, mint and lilac. Women on the other hand have dressed this trend in many ways, on a casual day some may wear nothing but an over-sized pastel jumper and some jeans, however even a pastel clutch will sort out their evening attire!

Pastels With Neutrals – Pastels look amazing with creamy tones so don’t be afraid to mix things up a bit

Pastel Colour Blocking – Again never restrict yourself when you wear pastels, you can throw on some bright or detailed clothing to create a contrast – but be careful not to work with clothes that feature complicated cuts and details!

Pastels Colours & Tones –  A pastel rule states: Dark skinned people look amazing in creamy/lighter tones and light skinned people should go for more coffee/ richer pastel shades. Blondes can practically get away with mixing and matching and brunettes and redheads are known to look pale if too many pastels are incorporated in their outfit – this is where you would create a contrast with pastel colours and bright shades
