Pastels in spring may not seem revolutionary, but the trend is definitely here to stay. From the SS21 runways of brands such as Isabel Marant and Jacquemus to the collection by smaller brands such as By Megan Crosby and Lucy and Yak, it’s clear that head-to-toe pastel looks are still a fashion favourite. But is that such a bad thing?
Well, no. Colour is often considered to be a powerful communication tool that can influence one’s mood, emotions or opinions before a word has even been spoken. The softness of pastels can elicit feelings of comfort and familiarity, which are both feelings that have been stripped away from many of us due to the pressures and anxieties of the pandemic. Pastels also feel youthful and remind many of us of our childhoods, so that sense of nostalgia can offer a form of comfort and support which, in turn, can become happiness.
Here at FROW, we are well aware that whilst you may want to evoke feelings of childhood joy in your wardrobe, you will still want to dress your age. For beginners looking to inject some colour into your wardrobe, try a dress or jumpsuit in a pastel shade and pair it with accessories in either white or a complementary shade. For example, a pistachio shade works well with a lilac, whilst orange and pink are a sherbet dream combination. The exciting thing about pastels is that there really is no right or wrong when it comes to colour blocking, so why not have fun with it? Pastels are all about joy and loving life, and is there anything more joyful than dressing like an ice lolly?
