If you take one look at my website, Instagram and art, it is very very obvious that I love pastel. Therefore, I’m also very very excited that pastel is one of the spring/summer trends for 2018. Especially during Londen Fashion Week there was a lot of pastel on the catwalk, with Emilia Wickstead, Victoria Beckham, Chanel, Preen and many more incorporating soft, milky shades of purple, pink and yellow into their collections.
As the days are slowly getting longer and the sun is showing its face every now and again, I for one cannot wait to start wearing lighter, more flowy spring clothes. Of course it is still very cold in the Netherlands so that will have to wait, but a great way to already incorporate the new trends is through accessories, so I rounded up a few of my favourite pastel items from around the web for some style inspiration. I usually wear quite neutral colours, but these items really are perfect for adding a little pop of colour to your outfit. Keep scrolling to see which pieces make the cut!
& Other Stories
& Other Stories has a great selection of pastel accessories for this spring and these two were my favourite. I just love how simple and structured the purple bag is, which makes it so easy to combine despite it’s colour. The pumps are such a flattering pink and pointy toes shoes are my favourite. They are just so chic!
A watch that has a little swan floating around its watch face naturally gets an up vote from me! I love how detailed the swan is and how nicely it contrasts with the bright beautiful green/blue of the watch face and strap.
I always have a hard time walking in pumps that don’t have straps. Whatever I try, my ankle just slips out the back of them. I’ve recently bought a pair of blue Dune London pumps with cross traps just like these ones, and I truly fell in love with the style of them. These shoes are a little less high, but look just as chic as those!
I love ‘on the ear’-earrings. They frame your face in such a great way and these pretties will surely add a pop of soft grace to your complexion. The last item I picked is this beautiful sea green structured bag, which pairs so well with the pink coat the model has on. I love the gold hardware and the ease of it being a crossbody bag.
