Pastels for spring may not be groundbreaking, but the colour code continues to pull power moves on the runway
Season after season, sugary shades inject a sweet note into our wardrobe — from powder blue to yellow sherbet and ever-so-soft lilac. For SS20, the proven palette returned with a subtle new look fit for a new decade.
According to the runway, the fresh way to wear pastels is by pairing them with more pastels: Max Mara showcased utilitarian-style suits in head-to-toe pastel tones, Marco De Vincenzo and Loewe made a case for candied stripes in peach and dusty pink, and Prabal Gurung teamed lavender with mint.
So dust off your baby blue blazer and pair it with a new neo-mint clutch, wear your pretty pink blouse with lemon shades or go all out with a full pastel spectrum inspired by 16Arlington’s soft shaded feathers. Scroll through the gallery for a glimpse into SS20’s sweetest trend.
