With warm, sunny weather comes the desire to spruce up your wardrobe with fun, happy spring colours. Whether it’s wearing colorful pants in soft mint, delicate yellows or corals, or adding a simple pop of colour to a subdued neutral or black ensemble, spring is the perfect season to incorporate more cheerfulness into your wardrobe.
There is something casually sophisticated about an oversized coat, especially in pastel shade. Fresh off the runway, with exaggerated proportions and wide-set shoulders it is an ideal spring layering device. You might say pastels are just for spring wear, but they are not anymore. We have seen so many pastel wool coats as a part of winter street style outfits, even as a compliment to the evening formal dresses. In spring, wear your candyfloss-coloured coat with tailored pantsuit and women’s brogues for a modern take on a tomboy dressing.
Don’t shy away from pastels as the weather gets warm — embrace them! Elegant and flattering pastel hues are easy to wear for women whose physique and complexion can be described as ethereal and fair. If you’re not one of them or if you’re still too scared of wearing pastel clothes, a fun solution is to incorporate classy pastel accessories such as handbags, jewellery and shoes into your outfit. Pastel accessories are also a great match to classy prom dresses.
Nothing puts us in a better mood than a brand-new manicure in one of the season’s freshest colours. The new season is flush with pastel hues and therefore your manicure should be in one of the following shades: buttercup yellow, cool mint, soft pink, pistachio green, forget-me-not blue and seductive lavender. Pastel nail polishes make a perfect match to sportswear-inspired pieces, all-white ensembles and even pastel wedding dresses (find your inspo at OkDress).
Pastels are always in for spring, and thanks to advanced hairdressing techniques even your hair can embrace them. Looking to make a hair statement in a big way?
