Guest Post: Matches Fashion -Spring Pastel Shades-

As we wave goodbye to winter and the muted colour palette that goes with it, we are left wondering what to wear for the warmer spring days ahead. If bright colours are the stuff of nightmares but you are sick of the navy, burgundy and tan that has lasted all season, there is a fresh but subtle alternative, pastel shades. 
The designer runways have been packed with mint green, lemon, peach, and ice blue and now the designer clothes are available to snap up. If colour isn’t normally your thing, introduce a small amount, perhaps a sheer blouse or frilled cami and pair it with your favourite skinny jeans and heels.

For those a little braver who like to stay ahead of the fashion game, pastel jeans and chinos are going to a big trend in the upcoming months and will be perfect for slightly cooler summer days too. Keep the styling simple and don’t go overboard on the accessories, the trousers will be a statement in themselves. A classic white ruffle shirt will look great with any shade.

As ever Diane Von Furstenberg’s dresses are on this season’s most wanted list and she has some great styles in pastel shades in her collection. Whether they be a turquoise lace shirt dress, lilac shift or a mint green belted dress, the classic shapes will make you feel much more comfortable in a colour that is perhaps a little brighter than usual.

Accessories have also gone pastel so ditch the faithful black clutch and choose one that will fit into a spring/summer theme. Nude pink will go with most colours so if you are looking for a great all- rounder, choose one in this shade. A light wool scarf always looks elegant and will also keep you warm while we wait for the weather to warm up. Complete the look with a statement ring as gold looks great against these tones and you will be ready to turn heads!
