So, here we all are, ensconced in a brand new year. The festivities have all died down and it’s back to business. Doesn’t sound so appealing does it? BUT……… how about some candy colour and ice cream pastels to liven up the days. You can’t help but feel bright wearing one of these pretty hues, whether you go all bubblegum pink, frosty lilac, minty green, or lemon drop yellow (see the sounds of these colors are already brightening up your day), there is a shade to suit you and add into your (very) early Spring wardrobe.
Just by wearing this coral knit, it instantly lifts the whole outfit and gives it a Spring vibe that is so wearable now. If the colour isn’t enough to make you feel all warm inside, add a faux fur collar to keep you toasty. Such an effortless look to carry off and it looks fresh and modern.
I’ve hunted the web to find some of the most delicious pieces ready and waiting to be enjoyed by you.
How pretty and cool at the same time is this mint green borg jacket with frogging details from ASOS ($41.00, currently on sale and a steal). Sits just above the hips, so is perfect for high waist, wide leg pants.
There is something so gorgeous about a mannish style jacket in a bubblegum pink shade. This one by TIBI ($595.00) would look fabulous with a pair of dark denim turnup jeans.
A Salmon pink gives this cropped length knit by And Other Stories ($65.00) a soft look. Wear under a bright jacket (It would look amazing under the Tibi one above) and tuck into some high waist pants for added style kudos.
Robe dressing is gathering momentum for S/S ’18 and this one in sugary pink by Ganni ($250.00) is beautiful. Wear as a dress, or open over cropped pants, turnup jeans in a lighter wash and a simple cami tank.
This silky jacquard, bed jacket style blouse from Topshop ($60.00) will work worn with a white tee or tank underneath, wear open or tied.
And Other Stories has come up trumps with this soft lilac hued, sheer Jacquard blouse with drawstring sleeves ($125.00) and it is the perfect partner to a soft blue jean, a black tux jacket and black suede (leather or patent is too heavy for this color) heels for an easy, chic outfit.
Brighten up a dull, grey day with this rainbow stripe sequin top by Rixo London ($275.00), it adds a daywear vibe with the point collar and full sleeves, perfect to dress up a casual look.
These candy pink sculptured heels by Jacquemus ($400.00) tick all the boxes, they’re suede, they’re slingback and they have a wearable heel. Just to go off kilter slightly,one shoe has a suede circle and the other one has a suede square.
Yellow can be a difficult colour to wear for some, but everyone can wear a fabulous pair of Calvin Klein suede ankle strap heels in this rich lemon ($358.00, currently on sale). Suede is definitely a go to when choosing a bright or colourful shoe, it really softens the look and feel and makes it much easier to wear.
For a finishing touch, this Lilac “Tenby” bag ($650.00) by Mulberry is perfect. Small enough and with just enough gold hardware to dress it up for evening, it still has enough room to carry your daily essentials too.
Here’s to a colourful start to the New Year.
