Candy pinks, baby blues and sorbet lemons, (yes, you guessed it) the next big spring/summer ’14 trend is pastels. Burberry, Prabal Gurung and Jason Wu showcased pretty pastel tones in their own collections for Ss14, so who are we not to follow suit?
For a summery feel, explore sugary yellows and the palest of greens – wear them together if you’re feeling fashionably brave. Alternatively, pink pastel coats look fabulous with blue denim and, in the height of summer, team pastels with classic white for a look that’s pure elegance.
The easy way to nail the pastel trend and update your look is to splurge on a new accessory – whether that be a new piece of stylish arm candy, jewellery or a fabulous new pair of shoes.

Editor’s Tip: Pastels are a beautiful way to add a sense of spring to your wardrobe. In the mid-season months, team a pastel pink coat with your staple jeans for a look that’s summery and practical, ideal for keeping you protected when the spring showers hit.
