Spring has sprung, and I couldn’t be happier. There’s something so carefree about being outside without a jacket, walking because it’s sunny and not because you have a scheduled obligation to hurry to, and seeing all the flowers come out of hiding. Spring is also a beautiful time for fashion, a chance to put away the coat and boots you’ve had to wear practically every day and warm up to complete style freedom. For me, this means light, cheerful pastel colors, soft flourishes, and nature-inspired motifs. Pantone’s designated Colors of the Year are Rose Quartz and Serenity, and there’s no better season to wear them!
Some people think pastel colors are okay in small doses, but they could never wear an outfit composed entirely of pastels. Yet I think head-to-toe pastel ensembles are the most fun, and it’s completely possible to dress this way without looking like the Easter Bunny. The trick is to balance your pinks with blues and to let your palest blush pieces segue into nudes and creams. Drawing from 400 boutiques around the world, Farfetch is my go-to place to find pieces that are sophisticated and stand out — the best combination for a tricky trend.
