Pastels are a quick and fashionable way to inject a hit of summer into any outfit. They add edge and excitement to an all-black ensemble. In a sea of ‘tasteful’ grey, black and navy, subtle pinks, purples, greens and blues add some spark and draw the eye.

Then there’s the bolder look - colour blocking. Right on trend, this is bound to bring a smile to your face, even when it’s drizzling. Cover yourself in slabs of colour - a light pink top with sexy high-waisted jeans, or a stunning turquoise dress for fancier dos, and feel your fashionista confidence glow with the pastels.
Finally, there’s the ladylike pastel. Think demure picnics in the park with strawberries and cream, or a tea party with cupcakes. Fifties-style printed dresses with pastel floral patterns are perfect for lifting the spirits on a cloudy day - they transport you to a more glamorous era. These dresses embrace your curves, upping your summer sexiness without you having to shiver in skimpy clothes. Finish with a slick of crimson lipstick to really illuminate your face.
Probably the most adorable thing you’ll see all day
