Pretty in Pastels

Well Hello. I’m back with some pretty pastels to help inspire all you budding brides. Following on from my first post I’ve put together a beautiful board of sugar-coated inspiration!

Whether it’s a little blush pink, powder blue, pistachio, parma violet or sherbet lemon that takes your fancy why not add a little sweet shop treat into your big day? With all the fashion weeks’ at a close you cannot fail-to-miss the sugary sweet tones that are now filtering into the high street too. I am in love with Burberry’s SS14 collection aptly named “Roses and Petals” and they have some beautiful coloured nail varnishes at a great price point too – should the catwalk collection be a little out of budget…

So how are you planning on introducing this look? Pastels are a fabulous look on your bridesmaids – pick your favourite tone or mix and match, either way, it’s a style sure to turn heads. And if you also want to channel pastels within your own ensemble, accessories are a great way to add a little dusting of colour. I think this beautiful Rosewater necklace from Jenny Packham would look stunning with a bridal gown or how about adding a little bit of fun with Sophie Webster’s “Blake” shoes (such a favourite I’ve featured them again below). Using your accessories to introduce a trend is a great idea as – best of all – you can keeping on wearing them long after your wedding is over and they will always remind you of your special day!

In regards to make-up, I previously mentioned that Dior have dedicated an entire collection to the trend called “Trianon” for spring 2014. There are still pieces available to buy though it’s selling out fast, better still get down to your nearest counter for a lesson! And here is a great tutorial from the uber talented make-up artist Lisa Eldridge. Whilst this video takes inspiration from an editorial Vogue shoot from 2010 (don’t trends come around again fast?!) you can easily adapt all or part of this look to suit you and your taste.   

So what do you say to these soft and chalky hues?
