Pretty in pink

This season much has been made of neon brights, but if these punchy colours aren’t for you then fear not, because pastels are still big news for SS11.

Get your designer fix from Hussein Chalayan, who has consistently showed pastels for the last decade, or even Chanel with their stunning range of classic two pieces, revamped in pastel tones.

This summer wear your jeans in shades of sorbet, from lemon to raspberry, and anything in between – as long as it’s not blue. I love the Current/Elliot range which are also a flattering mid calf length. Even a muted grey is part of this light tone palette, or to ease the transition into these summer colours, start simple with MACs SS11 collection.

Create the look with Whistles and their shades of pastel pink – we particularly like their dusky pink and silver slouchy jumper. Mix with white and grey tones and gold jewellery for easy chic, or try with those brights if you’re feeling daring. These great shades can be dressed up or down – just make sure to wear them now to bring a bit of sunshine to your wardrobe.
