Pastels add pounds. The other day I learnt of how these sugary shades aren't a good option for people of a shorter stature, making you look larger. How absurd does that sound? I have always been a bit dubious towards the colours as it is, surprising for somebody who enjoys dressing as if they still attend play school.
I've found them quite tricky to get right, purely down to the fact I think they can often cheapen an item and so the search is always quite hit and miss and when they are quite pallid hues, it seems they can pale skin look washed out.
Nonetheless, I am coming round to the trend slowly, it's hard not to when it is everywhere. I'm especially loving mint and this dress from Cos suits me down to the ground. The grey breaks up the lighter hue, so perfect for people like me who are a tad timid with the trend and aren't brave enough to wear it from head to toe.
The girl on the top right has created an adorable outfit making me realise that there is one thing I do appreciate about this trend and that is the ease in which these feminine ice cream tones can be mixed and combined.
