This weekend we (finally) got a glimpse of the sun and, while it may have popped back behind the clouds for Monday morning, the brief glimpse has put a spring in our step – and a spot of pastels in our wardrobe.
Every summer, along with the hit and miss British weather, a girl can always guarantee that pastels will make a style comeback – with this season no exception. At Debenhams, it seems that in 2013 we are plumping for pink in particular – something we’re quite loving in Head Office. After all, what girl doesn’t find it easy to feel pretty in pink?
First up, we’d like to recommend to you one of the ‘Exclusive to Debenhams’ dresses from occasionwear label Coast. The Berenice dress (above right) is bold and beautiful, with a sexy swishing frill effect, and bright enough to stand out from the crowd at any summer ‘do’ – be it at the racecourse, a grand outdoor wedding or a simple garden party. If you like a spot of pattern with your pink then the Meremee bandeau dress (above left), also from Coast, should be right up your style street.
Continuing with the perfectly pink theme, we also have some fabulous styles from our Designers at Debenhams range, in particular the J by Jasper Conran jersey peplum dress (above left), along with the Red Herring bandeau dipped back dress (above centre) and the Pink chiffon cowl neck dress from Collection (above right). If you aren’t sure if pink is your thing, you can always embrace this pastel tone with a simple splash of the colour with a gorgeous accessory, or two. On our wishlist this season is the H! by Henry Holland hot lips clutch (very Lulu Guinness), while the Nine West sequin clutch allows for a subtle injection of pink – and a little bit of summer sparkle.
Speaking of sparkle, Butterfly by Matthew Williamson’s new range boasts some irresistible jewellery pieces, particularly the over-sized pink ring (emphasise with pink nails courtesy of Nails Inc) and stone-studded bangle. If stones and studs are indeed for you, then head towards the Head over Heels at Dune range, particularly the Krissa toe jewelled sandals, taking that summer sparkle all the way to the sand on the beach.
Feeling pretty yet? We’re tickled pink.
