Colour-blocking was, and still is, a huge trend in fashion. Last year, the general palette was all about clever combinations of warm and cool tones. Now, it’s time to embrace the season’s sweetest candy colours! Pastel hues are all the rage, as seen on the runways of Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, and Oscar de la Renta. Ladies can turn their wardrobe up a notch by adding pretty pastels to any outfit, creating a look that is both comfortable and feminine. The basic rules of colour-blocking pastels are simple and fun. If you don’t want your ensemble to go overboard, try to balance it with sleek neutrals and chic accessories. When layering up on the pinks, lilacs, mints, and yellows, incorporate an item with a nice-looking print.
