Softer Shades This Spring

8 04 2010

After last years massive colour-blocking trend, this springtime I’m looking foward to wearing nude colours and pastel shades. The catwalks are awash with lilac, pink, blue, pale green and yellow.  However the high-street is full of pastel goodies so you can wear the trend without feeling guilty!

Pick a colour to suit you! Avoid wearing pastels with too much black, this is a light and girly look.  Pinks and corals look amazing on those with a lighter complexion, but also work well on those who have darker features. For blonde haired girls avoid wearing yellow, as this will wash you out. Shades of blue and purple also look fabulous with darker skin, and all pastels look great with a tan!

Here are some of my favourites:
