The Perfect Pastel
Summer is finally here and with the change in weather, comes a change in fashion. Pastel colours seem to return to our catwalks and fashion magazines every year, with that said, 2021 is celebrating pastels once again with toned down blues, lilacs, yellows, pinks and greens returning to our shops.
So whether you’re heading abroad, on staycation or even just enjoying summer barbeques with family and friends, check out our top picks to ensure you are embracing the perfect pastel trend.
Nothing says summer like the colour yellow, so why not check out this smock-topped dress (£17.99) from H&M. Bringing comfort and style, this dress is perfect for warmer weather and even has detachable straps to avoid awkward tan lines!
Why not treat your man to a new shirt? A pink shirt such as this one (£16 from Next) is a summer wardrobe staple. Pair with white shorts and sliders or white trainers for the ultimate laidback look.
The schools have now broken up for the summer holidays, so why not treat your little ones to some new footwear? We are loving these pastel blue Vans (£37 from Schuh) in The Liberty and these pastel multi tie-dye Crocs (£24.99 from Office) These are sure to make your kids stand out from the crowd!
Bring pastels to your children’s jewellery collection with these Claire’s Club Rainbow Stretch bracelets (£5 from Claire’s). This pack includes 3 matte beaded bracelets in pastel shades of blue, purple, and pink with a rainbow, shooting star, and unicorn charm.
Lightweight linen is always popular in summer, which is why we have chosen this V-Neck Midaxi Tiered Dress with Linen (£79 from Marks & Spencer). In a beautiful lilac colour, this dress is suitable for many occasions such as holidays, shopping trips, garden parties or even for a laidback office look. Pair with brown wedges or white trainers for a daytime look.
