This fashion season calls for a muted, pretty palette of pastel hues; colours reminiscent of macarons and cotton candy. So, what shades will be hanging in your wardrobe this year?
- Whether you’re a girly girl or not, there’s no denying that the precious pastel pinks of 2020 – think sugary sweet peach and gentle rose shades fit for a princess – will freshen up any wardrobe. While ‘millennial pink’ still stands strong, a rival is in town; introducing ‘perracotta’, a trendy mashup of pink and terracotta that packs a serious pastel punch.
- Wave goodbye to 2019’s neo-mint and say hello to pistachio green! Our new favourite neutral, pistachio has been rising through the ranks over the last few seasons and it has well and truly staked its claim as the ‘it’ colour for 2020. This light and fresh hue works wonderfully well with stark white, denim and other pastel shades. Oh, and keep your eyes peeled for other delicate shades of green like mint and lime!
- Calling all minimalists! If you really do want a mellow yellow, then ‘sunlight’ is the shade you’ve been looking for. Sunlight yellow is an ethereal, romantic pastel shade that’s hot topic right now – namely because of its versatility. Keep things sweet and simple by pairing an investment piece – like a chic blazer, linen wide-legged trousers or a silk blouse – with off-white or pale denim.
