Rings and Things: Pastel Party
A kaleidoscope of the prettiest springtime shades took over the season’s spring 2014 collections. From mint-green hues at Burberry to powder-pinks at Temperley, the colour story was all about soft and subtle colours that nod towards a more romantic femme fatale.
Writers, bloggers and fashion lovers alike were applauding the siren call of “Pastel Power!” most likely because the tincture is just so wearable and so feminine all at once. For the adventurous whose fashion is all about contrasts, mix delicate lilacs with a hyper cobalt blue; for the more demure, your style certainly doesn’t have to suffer: a tone-on-tone bubblegum pink sweater and matching pencil skirt is everything but corporate.
For those who prefer to flirt with the trend, focus on accentuating with accessories! To keep your look from being too precious, mix metals and textures with pops of pastels like ice blue and pale pink with a pair of button earrings like our Hurles. Go all-out on a blue look with the floral Frirella paired with matching earrings, or go with the Raisch (another super seasonal superstar), to bring dressed-up style down into the everyday. And because the shades are so light, layering is key, so pair a stack of pale-and-interesting bracelets with a pastel floral scarf to keep interest high and the compliments a-coming!
