Spring vibes & pastel tones
As the days grow longer, spring gives us a gentle nudge towards color. At last, our closets can make use of a palette of light and fresh tones - they can’t help but make us think of the shades of a delicate sunset.
At once romantic and candid, pastel tones are a must-have for the coming season. Ranging from bourgeois pale yellow at Céline and baby doll pink at JW Anderson to pale baby pink at Chloé and Alexander McQueen – and let’s not forget suave lilac, which Jacquemus turned into a summer fashion statement – these summery tones are as bountiful and delectable as the sweetest sorbet.
If you’re feeling bold, you could dare to go for a head-to-toe pastel look. Far from turning you into a pink or purple life-size marshmallow, this style allows you to explore the gentle nuances offered by these watercolor tones through a subtle mix of materials.
A pink silhouette softens the bite of a faux-leather crocodile print, confidently teamed with Vanessa Wu sneakers in a feline print for a bold look. Combined with a daring leopard print, the pastel pink Velcro of the sneakers lends a feminine balance to a look without it becoming too childish or too wild; subverting romantic tropes, the pairing results in a light and elegant look that exudes strong and self-assured femininity. Forget the stereotype: wearing pink has never been so synonymous with empowerment!
Harness the rainbow
In reality, pastels are no longer just about playing baby dolls – they’ve become a new terrain for experimenting with vibrant possibilities. Subtly combining these girly colors is a creative way of expressing your femininity.
Why not dare, for example, to wear a suit in an elegant mix of lilac, sky blue and sea green? This look can be bossy and powerful without losing the colors’ gentler connotations. Worn with heeled Vanessa Wu sandals, the outfit is brought to a stylish conclusion with a sophisticated rainbow of straps that sensually hug the foot – it’s the perfect ensemble for a day at the office or an aperitif.
Whether you’re after a preppy outfit with a twist, a revamped baby doll look, or quirky streetwear, pastel colors are bringing a feminine edge to a limitless range of playful ensembles!
