SS13 TREND #3 - Dainty Pastels

The dainty pastel look is by far my favourite of the Spring Summer '13 trends. However, it is also one of the most difficult to pull off, and wearing one too many items can leave you looking like you've been dragged through a chalk factory backwards.

The high street and online marketplace has become completely saturated with pastel pieces, some which are beautiful and some which do not deserve to have ever been designed. My top picks are pictured above, ranging from Ash wedge trainers to frilly socks, a Cambridge Satchel to patent colourblocked brogues.

As with the neon trend, pastels look best when paired with simple, staple items, and in my opinion the best way to wear this trend is by limiting yourself to three (possibly even two) pastel pieces per outfit. 

What do you think about the pieces I have picked? 

Tomorrow's look will be printed trousers.


  1. I loveee the colors on the colorblocked brogues! Love the colors of the nail polishes you've chosen also(: Great items!


  2. I love that pastel checkerboard print dress! So lovely for Spring.
