Pastels come around every springtime but this time they’re different; edgier, duskier and pretty without being sickly sweet. You’re regular baby pink is now dusky rose and baby blue is more a muted aqua. Good news too if you’re investing in pastels now, whether it’s for your nails or wardrobe, since they’re set to continue into autumn / winter with the likes of TOPSHOP, Dior, Matthew Williamson and Holly Fulton all showing edgy pastels at London Fashion Week back in February.
To bring them up to date, wear your pastels with dusky hues of blue like navy and various denim rinses or introduce pastels into your outfit via accessories. I love these gorgeous pastel paint print pumps, mint tote bag and fringed parcel bag all by Aldo at Churchill Square Shopping Centre. Fringing is huge fashion news giving a nod to the current 70s vibe and since I spotted these bags, I keep thinking about them (so that means I’m going to have to buy them). Sure, I don’t need them but as I keep I telling my husband- buying handbags is not about need, it’s about want.
My latest manicure champions a number of key hues for SS15:
- You’re Such a Budapest (lilac)
- Gargantuan Green (the brighter green)
- Samoan Sand (the light peach)
- Disco Stick Grey (the blue/ grey/green on the little finger)
- Tauple-less Beach (the tauple/mink)
All OPI gels.
Why stick to one when you an have them all?
