Finding the searing heat of Summer in Australia hard to navigate in style ?
Why not keep cool with sartorial sorbet ? Pastels were one of the key trends from SS/12 runways.
My personal favourites providing endless outfit inspiration are the easy sophisticated slouchy look of 3.1 Phillip Lim, the modern tea party look with broderie anglaise /cut out details from Louis Vuitton and the Blade Runner meets forties lady look from Preen. Unreal !
If you are keen to see how to do the hair from Louis Vuitton & others – check out my blog on Buns, Chignons, Up & Lo Dos
Here are some great pastel pieces I have found for you out there – either on sale or otherwise.
Combine them & work into your wardrobe easily – just add other pastels, silver, neutrals, white or even black.
Also come and look at my Pinterest Perfect Pastels board for more shopping inspiration, pics of celebs working it & street style pastel inspiration.
STEELEMyStyle online shopping tip
When searching on Polyvore, Shopstyle, eBay or on specific websites try combining words like pastels, sorbet, vintage – add in things like silk, linen, floral, printed, broderie anglaise, embroidered etc in your search to cut down on the amounts of dross you find and target those gems quickly.
