Candy colours can be seen everywhere this season, which makes it the number one trend of the moment. If bright colours are too bold for your summer wardrobe, pastels are a great alternative to introduce hints of colour into your outfits. And if mixing and matching and clashing doesn’t entirely float your boat, take inspiration from us to slowly bring in candy shades to construct your perfect spring/summer wardrobe.
The best thing about summer? Those lazy sunny afternoons, of course! Picnicking in the park with friends and family is a great time to spend your day, so channel your girlie side and team dresses with knee-length socks. This yellow polka dot dress by AX Paris is as cute as a button, especially when worn with other pastel shades! Matching two of your accessories such as these Miu Miu shades and Dune brogues adds a whimsical feel, but try to add at least three colours into your outfit to keep it fresh. Don’t forget that your socks can be an important part of your outfit – these Therapy mint knee-highs will really make a statement.
Don’t neglect your casualwear, so inject some candy into your everyday wardrobe. The best way to do this is with every girls staple item – jeans. These stunning skinnys by J Brand are fantastic to wear during the day, but could easily be dressed up with a glitzy top and heels for a night out. Add neutrals into the palette with items such as this slouchy knit by Jane Norman. Make your bag become the focal point of your outfit with this amazing coral cross body bag by Paul Smith London, and finish off with some foot candy with these super cute pumps by Bertie.
A night out is a girls time to shine! This yellow beaded dress by French Connection is absolutely jaw-dropping, and will guarantee that you make an entrance. Pair with these stunning statement heels by KG to create the perfect outfit for a night out with the girls, and finish the outfit with a neutral bag like this pale pink leather clutch by Planet. Less is more, so keep jewellery to a minimum and keep the focus on the dress.
Candy make up is brilliant for summer so use colour to emphasise eyes, lips or cheeks. This palette by Dior combines a flattering range of colours for any skin tone – use the darker shades to contour. Find the perfect pale pink like this lipstick by Guerlain, which compliments a rosy glow to the cheeks created by Laura Mercier mineral cheek powder. As it’s summer smell as fresh as a daisy – literally! – with Marc Jacobs, the ideal fragrance for those upcoming sunny days.
