Pastel Pink: How To Wear Spring’s Sweetest Shade

 

 

A hit throughout AW14 in the shape of the powder pink coat, the pastel pink trend is proving it’s got plenty of staying power and hanging around for SS15, too – hoorah!


The perfect shade to see you through spring days or summer nights, this ultra-feminine hue will be your wardrobe saviour. Here’s how to do it right, with a little help from the style set.

 

Cover Up


The pink coat is still a winner with the fash pack and swings into spring in a much more lightweight fabric. We’ll be throwing our pastel pink mac over a printed jumpsuit and heels or a pencil and white tee combo.

Give denim an update


Quite simply a match made in heaven, denim and powder pink is the easiest way to work the pretty pastel. Boyfriend jeans are the perfect partner for a fine pink knit or crop top. Introduce contrasting ice cream shade accessories for extra style points.
