Trend watch: Pale and Interesting POSTED BY LTSJo 02.05.12
This spring, the catwalks were full of pale and interesting shades – from sherbet yellow at Calvin Klein to spearmint green at Christopher Kane, this season’s colours are straight out of the sweet shop. Here are our tips for trying out the look… This colour trend creates a striking and innocent look, but if you feel a bit too sweet wearing head to toe pastels, there are ways to tone down the effect. This polka dot skirt from our range of long tall skirts would be the perfect accompaniment to a pastel top. To create a 1950s silhouette, tuck your pastel piece under the skirt’s waistband, and finish the look with a classic handbag. Don’t be afraid to layer multiple pastel shades – this season’s colours complement each other well, and you can also experiment with texture. Lace looks lovely in pale hues for instance, and is in keeping with the romance and innocence of the look. For the colder early weeks of spring, it may be best to invest in a pair of tall slim trousers and layer a cardigan in a pale shade. A pair of denim jeggings would fit the bill perfectly, and there are plenty to choose from in our range of tall slim trousers, all tailored to fit longer limbs. Hair and make-up for this trend should reflect the look’s innocence. Opt for the palest foundation possible for your skin tone and a pearly pink lipstick. If you’re nimble fingered, why not french plait your hair, then distress the plait by unpicking it slightly to create an effortlessly romantic style. If you’ve got shorter locks, pin them off your face to create an innocent elfin look. For the perfect finish, use hair slides embellished with pearls. After the bleak winter months, this trend is just what we need to lift our spirits and brighten up our wardrobes! The catwalks were full of sugary delights and Vogue has tipped pretty pastels to be one of the biggest trends of the season. So, whether you’re stepping out in head to toe pastels or one statement pale piece, tall ladies should embrace being pale and interesting this spring!
