One day we’re colour blocking, the next it’s all pretty pastels here on the Ocean Terminal blog. That’s how we roll!
If bold and bright is not your thing, how about subtle pastels – perfect for a summer wedding.
Baby blue, mint green, pale pink and lemon yellow are the four key pastel shads to look for. Mix them up for perfect pastel style head to toe, or wear one pastel head to toe – just be careful your shades match.
Gorgeous mint green is beautiful on redheads, blondes and brunettes – perfectly flattering to pale and olive skin tones alike, it’s a winning pastel.
