The Pastel Parade!

Hiya! How is everyone keeping?
Right so there are some "luh-vel-leee" key trends this spring/summer so I thought I would take a little time to point them out and show some examples! In an upcoming post I'll be showing some of things I bought for the upcoming season as well as helping you find those bargains and the top styles for less.

Firstly, I am going to focus on Pastels. They are dreamy, refreshing, cute colours that can soften any outfit.
I've selected some of my favourite examples of pastels on the catwalk.
L-R- Lagerfield at Chanel, Phillip Lim, Michael Sontag and Mulberry. All these images are from the internet and I don't own them!

I'm loving these colours they really have the feeling of spring. Note the statement shopper by Mulberry and their use of the striping which will come in later on with the deckchair pattern style. Pastels seem to work well in colour blocking. So clean-cut, totally awesome and pretty while still looking effortless.

L-R- Ralph Lauren, Versace, Versace, Christian Dior. Again none of these photos are mine and I got them from trawling through the internet for hours!

Loving the pale lavenders from Ralph Lauren though I don't know if I would have the guts to wear a sheer top without a bra! Very cute mint green and pale aqua blue dresses from Donatella Versace and this flowing, elegant almost white but still green chiffon dress from Dior tell us that these almost not there colours are very in this season! Clearly the lack of layering and the light clothing also tell us that we're going to have a lovely spring. Somehow I doubt so in Ireland and the UK anyway! lol

L-R- Louis Vuitton. Top Right-Prada. Bottom Right- Versace. Once more, these images do not belong to me and I found them on various websites.

Loving these cool and fresh colours From Vuitton, Prada and Versace. We're seeing the gorgeous bowling bag style as well as pretty detailed patterns and sharp and geometrical shapes all whilst still maintaining the emphasis on the female silhouette. Pure Gorgeous! Very definite 50's style as well. Think 50's housewife meets Desperate Housewives!! haha

I realise I'm starting these posts a little late but it's technically still winter and I did only start blogging... last night! I will try to get as much done as possible so that you are in the know-how for S/S12 and then I will start into F/W12 so that you can catch any sales etc. For now I am going to enjoy wearing my tartan, berry colours and knee-high sheep skin boots. You should too! If you've got any ideas on this season's focus on pastels as well as your own favourites etc let me know. I love to hear other people's likes and dislikes, especially when it comes to fashion, or music, or anything!

It is about 4am where I am and I am listening to a genius mix on my I-Pod. Think Otis Redding, Amy Winehouse, John Legend, Prince and Rihanna, Gil Scott-Heron. Very laid back and chilled.

Well, hope this gave you some ideas and insight into the pastel trend.
Byee!! xo
