What do you get when you cross baby soft coloured ice cream, candy floss and candy?
Spring/Summer 2010′s pastel filled collections, that’s what!
From Christopher Bailey for Burberry Prorsum’s draped young sophisticate collection, Valentino’s elegance right through to Viktor & Rolf’s surreal line up.
I like that soft shades have been used in varying moods from the girly ingenue, glamorous to the strong.
For this look I will re-shopping my existing closet. We all have some soft hued garments hanging in our wardrobes somewhere.
The trick with this trend like all others is to make it work for you.
An unapologetic girly girl? Well make like a piece of candy and shimmy into head to toe pastels. Keep it interesting like Luella’s girl and pair different candy floss coloured garments together. Do not be afraid to throw your baby blues with those coral, soft yellows and so forth.
Wear a pastel hair or an ombre hair shade seen here.
Think pastels are for 6 year old girls and younger? A peek of baby soft wont hurt you. I promise! Join the party by rocking a small piece in your outfit or accessories.
A soft nail shade is also a great pared back nod to the trend. See here for great nail varnish options.
Be inspired by the looks from Burberry Prorsum, Versace, Charles Anastase, Valentino, Viktor & Rolf and Luella (as featured in collage) and dip into your inner pastel girl.
