Seeing as we’ve finally been getting some sunny rays I’ve started to get my wardrobe ready for this summer, anyone who has been keeping an eye on the catwalks and highstreet will know that one of the biggest trends for s/s 12 is pastels and I can’t wait to start resembelling an ice-cream.
I went to Westfields the other day and every shop was pastel pastel pastel, so it’s almost impossible to hide from this trend….but why would you want to?
With powder puff pinks, pastel shades, creams, nudes and soft blues being the key colours for the season, it’s a perfect combo this summer, and if you are brave enough clash the colours too…even better!
Designers like Louis Vuitton, Preen (my personal favourite show of lfw s/s 12!) and House of Holland were purveyors of the pretty pastel trend this season.
Here are some of my favourite ‘pretty pastel’ pieces that are currently at pretaportobello.com
I loveee the Jolie Moi dress it’s definitely going on my ‘want list’. Buttt if you don’t want to go all out with the pastels just yet then the necklace and bangles are perfect to ease you into this pretty trend!
