Pastels. You’re going to see them EVERYWHERE this spring. You may even be sick of them, come, ooh, April, perhaps? Pastel pink is the most popular pastel choice, so we thought we would start there, and bring you the best of the pastel pink styles in the stores already.
Pastel pink is a lovely transitional colour to wear from winter in to spring. If the palest of pastel pink shades is too much, then try a more candy version. There is a lot of pink on its way into the stores in every shade this spring, so pastel pink won’t be your only choice.
But for now we will focus on the nudest, blush, powdery shades of pastel pink. A pastel pink coat is a great way to wear this shade. The pink coat was last autumn winter’s musthave coat, and the trend extends to this spring.
Candy pink shades work well in dresses, particularly with a retro vibe. Don’t forget those retro-style knickers!

Pastel pink can be loose and slouchy, a perfect Sunday shade. Slouchy tops and knits, pink chinos and oversize coats.
Gorgeous pink tailoring is an excellent choice for a spring wedding – mix it up a bit though, with shorts, instead of a skirt.

Pink looks great with black, but also works perfectly with denim – dark or faded. A simple pink accessory is a good way to reintroduce yourself to pastel pink – by spring, you’ll be fully embracing it!
