Pretty Pastels SS12

The One introduces the season’s key trend.

Key trends

Winter may just have properly set in, but for the fashion pack it is a new season, with pretty pastels leading the way. The SS12 shows left us craving peppermint greens and candyfloss pinks, shades that can be made to work just as well in the snow. At Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs sent his models spinning round a carousel in delectable pastel pieces finished with doily lace collars, while at Mulberry, ice cream was the running theme.

To make the transition, introduce pastels into your wardrobe with Topshop’s selection of coloured jeans, or ease in more gently with sherbet nails.

Remember – this look is sweet but not sickly.
