Pastels Updated


Pastels With Attitude

If you’ve always shied away from Spring’s pastels, it might be time to reconsider. Forget about the 1950’s prim associations and add a whole bucket of modern day attitude to these sugary shades instead.

Over the past week, I have been adding spoonfuls of sugary pastels to my wardrobe and my interiors.

Take it from me, a former reformed pastel critic, they’ll cheer you and your wardrobe up no end.

I adore this vintage baby pink t-shirt with its squiggly logo just above the boob – ‘Love saves the day’ from Hush homewear.

There’s something about this butter wouldn’t melt pink that gets me every time. The chic retro shade also looks amazing with a tan and blue denim come Summer.

Team your baby pinks with black – I for one love this combination.

I have teamed my sweet little tee with these great frayed jeans from a new hot but accessible designer Nan

These black jeans with their frayed-ends have gorgeous extra details like a small pearl sewn on the pocket.

This little pastel pink t-shirt which I think will sell out fast will also look gorgeous with blue denim and a tan come Summer.

If you don’t believe me about Pastels undergoing a sort of renaissance, this month’s Vogue magazine is imploring its readers to at least try, try, try .
Pastels have undergone a radical transition and the new way to wear Spring’s lighter shades is with lots of modern attitude.

Pastels are not just for girly girls
Build your look from a foundation of black, or black leather trousers. Or add some pastel accessory.
Remember you don’t have to go the whole hog, just keep it tame like me and wear a little.
A little pastel pink goes a long way.
This spring, a cute ‘Love Saves the Day’ embroidered v neck tee will enhance your basics.
