Pastels are one of spring summer 2021’s biggest trends – but how do you wear them?
Now that Christmas is over, all we can think about is spring.
If, however, you’re worried about the trend looking too teenage in them, fear not. We’ve discovered 7 ways to wear the trend that look sophisticated.
A tailored pastel blazer or suit is one of the easiest ways to smarten up the trend.
Add sunglasses to give the look an edge.
Whether it’s faux or real, leather has the power to make a look powerful, smart and instantly chic.
Opt for tan leather over black to make your pastels pop.
Dip your toe into pastels by adding accessories in sweet shades.
Whether it’s a scarf or handbag, it really is that simple.
There’s no need to go the whole hog with a trend if you’re not comfortable with it.
Pair pastels with denim for effortless chic.
If you’re ready to jump right into the trend, wear it head-to-toe.
That’s how it was worn on the catwalk at the Miu Miu, Fendi and Valentino shows, so go for it.
While many of us would never think to pair pastels with neutrals, it works so well.
This works best with pastel greens, lilacs and blues.
Dress it up
Another simple way to wear pastels like a grown-up is with a smart pastel dress.
We love Emma Slade Edmondson’s vintage pink dress, which looks smart and cute all at the same time.
