3 WAYS TO WEAR SPORTY PASTELS

By Maybelle Morgan, 20 February 2018

As we move towards spring (finally), a colour palette that’s good enough to eat is at the top of the agenda. Think sugary-sweet Love Heart tones, but minus the twee or feminine silhouettes. Keep the trend fresh for 2018 with your pretty pastel tones contradicted in sporty shapes or skate-casual jerseys. Here are three ways to work it…

Tailored, classic pieces get a fresh spring update with a raspberry-ripple colour palette, cropped lengths and sheer detailing. Blingy embellished mules plus chintzy gold earrings amp up the girlie factor, but then an oversized 90s acid-wash denim jacket breaks up the pink and levels out the sweetness for a more casual vibe.

Knitty gritty

After the cruel chill of winter, there’s nothing like some outfit brightness to have you excited for warmer (festival-going or gig) times. And perfect for such an occasion is this dreamy outfit, with a sheer minty roll-neck layered up with a 90s-style leopard-print cami dress. Wes Anderson meets retro-skate with these Nike colour-block sneaks, and some white logo socks and a dusty-rose bum bag help nail that urban-cool vibe.

This look is all about clashing up influences and unlikely pairings, so take your all-winter-long hoodie and tracksuit combo, but add a cutesy element with the granny-esque lemon-yellow colouring. Finish with retro accessories: think 80s pointed slingback heels and an oversized white cross-body with gold chain detailing.
