Nothing calls for a better sartorial palette cleanse than pastels. These soft sorbet hues have the ability to evoke feelings of freshness, the advent of spring and a soft appeal that can be universally flattering on both sexes. Ahead, take a look at how the trend has made a comeback just in time for summer with a few sweet-hued pieces from our very own lineup.
The spring summer ’20 runway ran amok with candy hues; whether it was the fluid hues at Akris or tailored pieces at Emporio Armani or Etro, there were no shortage of duck-egg blues, peaches, lilacs or dusky pinks. For long, these hues have been linked to ladylike looks, but that doesn’t necessarily need to be the case as of today.
Feminine damsels can stick to tonal pastel pieces to look more fashion-forward, while the ones who’d rather skew a lot less girly could colour block soft hues with highly saturated and bright pastels to give it a fun spin. Men could definitely inject some sorbet shades into their wardrobes without worrying about looking less masculine. Consider starting out with a single pastel element like a shirt or a pair of shorts and team it with your regular run-of-the mill neutrals — the soft pop of pastels could end up uplifting you a lot more than you’d expect. After all, there’s nothing onlookers love more than a man confidently wearing some pink.
These fresh colours are a lot easier to incorporate into your wardrobe than you’d think. And just to prove that, we’ve rounded up the best pastel pieces to add to your cart. Even if you think pastel isn’t your thing, we guarantee these candy-hued pieces will change your mind.
