Pretty Pastels Part II

Last spring we had been rooting for powdery hues in our “Spring Pastels” post, this time round our love for the soft pretty colours is firmly anchored in our hearts.

Versions of the on-trend soft tones bring to mind Italian ice cream, a palette of powder pastels or, in its slightly more vibrant quality, 1980s Miami Vice and have us dreaming of being touched by the sun, the smell of fresh flowers, soft silk or a light spring breeze.

What’s so great about pastels, each tone can be combined with any number of other pastel tones: pale yellows can sit alongside baby pinks, ice blues, soft mints, delicate lilacs and even nudes and whites. This year’s colour blocking is happening in softer tinges. It’s all about playing to a softer tune, bringing out one’s soft side that conveys an augmented sense of freshness and elegance.

Invest in a pair of pastel sunglasses, such as the Wildfox Steff Deluxe Frame in pastel blue or the Wildfox Juliet Frame in cream for spring 2014 or dress yourself in the beautiful soft tones Finders Keepers have in store for us that will bring out a fresh complexion that’s been kissed by the first rays of sunshine.

Let our pretty pastel edit inspire you to take these soft hues to the next level and see how Self Service brands Finders Keepers, Genetic, LNA and Wildfox have been styled by bloggers.
