Pretty pastels

Spring 12

Trend summary

Pastels came through as a key palette this season, from soft and dusty tones to vivid candy-coated options.

How to buy it

They can be difficult to wear, but pastels can be worked into pieces for a trend-led look. Florals can be updated in soft pastel tones, while stripes and polka dots are easy ways to work the colour into your offer. Colour-blocked pieces work best, while ombré options, as seen at  Jonathan Saunders, offer a directional take.
