GALLERY: Twelve Pretty Pastel Items You Need In Your Life

Every single one is a must-have.

Cathy Donohue

We’re loving pastels at the moment: from sugary sweet hues to light shades that almost border on neutrals.

It’s a look that’s often viewed as girly which isn’t much of a surprise considering the ice cream colours on offer. However, it’s easy to toughen this trend up if you so wish.

The Kurt Geiger Shoes are feminine yet cool (€140) and if you want an edgy take on the pastel look, pair the mint Pied a Terre dress (€116) with a leather biker jacket.

Decking yourself out in pastels from head to toe might be a little too much to start with so try adding accessories instead.

We LOVE this Therapy bag from House of Fraser, the pale pink is perfect for this season’s style and the structured frame makes it look a lot more expensive than the €46 price tag.

If you’re a Disney fan, the Givenchy jumper is sure to tickle your fancy but you might be saving the euros for a while as this is priced at €655.

A lot of these items can be carried from summer right into autumn winter, the blue ASOS boyfriend coat (€115) is right at the top of our new season wish list.

Have a look at the gallery for the rest of our pastel picks.
