Pastel colours set the tone
The new season’s must-haves
A trend that will regenerate you after a never-ending winter and an unparalleled health crisis. Fashion this season will be soothing, focusing on softness and colours. A dash of vintage, elegant colourways, a perfectly feminine harmony, we’ve totally fallen for these pastel colours.
Lilac, sky blue, sea green, pale yellow, dusty pink and then the more subtle shades of beige, nude and peach. A kaleidoscope of pastel colour fulfilling our most colourful dreams.
Subtle shades make a comeback
They’re everywhere, from top to toe, but not yet an up-and-coming phenomenon. We’re no strangers to pastels; they’ve been in our summer wardrobes for several seasons. They will continue to make heads turn in 2021, but this time, having taken over our wardrobes, now our shoes will get the pastel treatment. And yes, what’s better than a hint of pastel to soften an outfit and give it a touch of originality? From now on, you’ve got a choice: take up a total pastel look, or complete your normal look by putting it all into your shoes.
- Option 1, the total look: it’s all a question of how much. The recipe? No more than 3 different colours, interchange between one strong pastel and a more neutral one (like nude, for example), and add in a colour which contrasts, such as white or denim, a big favourite for pastel outfits.
- Option 2, just shoes: this approach is more understated, but no less interesting. Here your pastel focus is on accessories. The idea: play with colour repetition among your favourite pair of shoes, your designer bag and your vintage jewelry.
Life in pastel
Softened trend with shades of watercolours
From mules to sandals, pastels adorn all our favourite summer styles. The good news is that, unlike last summer’s fluorescent look, this one is a lot easier to wear and, more to the point, to replicate! Two colours stand out and continue to make waves: lilac and sea green. Often forgotten and described as difficult to wear, they’re now showing that it is totally possible to even match them up with coloured clothes: lilac and lemon yellow, sea green and powder pink - you get the picture!
Sophisticated colourways, the real alternative to white
We can totally say that “pastels are the new white”. With their powdery shades, sometimes so close to off-white, pastels are the alternative to white and are hard to refuse! In this case, we can opt for very light pastels or just plain nude. This means even the more conservative of us can keep wearing our favourite coloured items without the fear of being over the top. Colour is tamed; so take a punt with pastels on your feet as the first step!
We may be a little biased, as we are outright fans, but let us highlight that this trend is an easy one to embrace: the available palette of colours makes it unthinkable not to be able to find some shoes which will brighten up your feet this summer! Make way for these irresistibly sweet colours.
