LUST HAVES: Giving a bit of edge to winter pastels

Posted on: September 4, 2013

We’ve been talking quite a bit about dark, broody colours for autumn/winter, but those soft cloud-like pastels that we usually associate with spring and sunshine are here to stay. You only have to look at the huge amount of fuss that’s been made about those pale pink coats at Zara and M&S (already sold out, we’ll tell you when it’s back in stock) that are all soooo Celine, not to mention the wisps of pale blue too. The key to wearing a winter pastel is to dilute all that sugary prettiness with the season’s heavier and broodier (there you have it again) shades. Don’t be afraid to mix black with pink and accessorise with a metallic stud detail here and there. Navy, the new black, is a great partner to those soft blues and whispers of grey. This is a perfect way to start merging your summer and autumn wardrobes. Natalie x
