Pastel colours are beautiful, but how do they fit into your everyday wardrobe? Good question. We asked our very-approachable, real-life gurus (our in store experts and fashionable friends) to try out our Spring Collection for themselves.
They rose to the challenge and decided on some style rules for incorporating these brand new styles and colours into your everyday wardrobes while the weather is still doing that tricky, in-between thing.
Here are their top tips that were too good not to pass on:
1. Clay is the new white
Need a bag that will go with everything but trying to stay away from black? Our brand new Clay shade ticks all the neutral boxes but keeps things interesting fresh and interesting. A great way to brighten darker outfits and coats.
2.If in doubt, denim.
This is more of a rule for life than a rule for Spring. If you’re ever unsure how to incorporate pastels into your wardrobe, denim will always work. Opt for a simple button up denim dress and simple white trainers and let your new bag shine.
3. Darker prints help balance out brighter bags
Pastel colours head to toe can be a great look when the weather starts to heat up. True story. But the good news is, you don’t have to wait for sunshine to wear our new season shades. Opt for darker prints as a backdrop for colours like Peony Peach and Sweet Pea Blue to really pop against. We like that this print has little hints of pastel through it to compliment the backpack.
4. A casual outfit looks instantly more pulled together with a bright new bag
Make your comfy, off-duty weekend outfit much more interesting with an unexpected twist in the form of our Cloud Bag. The new two tone design makes the pastel colours ultra-wearable and the scalloped style looks great with everything from jeans to party dresses.
5. Pair with a crisp white shirt
We like how polished our Twist Lock looks with a crisp white shirt and denim. Mixing classic navy, denim and white is a always a timeless option – the three just seem to make sense together. (PS. Clutch bag or shoulder bag…decisions, decisions. Luckily this one does both. All the sophistication of a clutch with the roominess of a shoulder bag.)
