Strong sweets

Sweet pastel is making a statement.

Stylist and fashion consultant Simone Dernee highlights the latest trends.

‘Pastels are so forgiving’ – Artist Gaye Adams

The catwalks were divided between neon colours and washed sorbet shades, with soft strawberry and peach coming out as clear favourites. Chloe used these colours for floor sweeping-dresses in soft chiffon, which looked as if they’d been spotted in a vintage shop – such a rare find! Jonathan Simkhai used pastels for elegant ballerina dresses in shiny silk with a lace bodice and pleated skirts. If you associate soft pastel shades with the sweet, girly look, then think again. Peach and strawberry lend themselves extremely well to interesting, voluminous suits with a loose, relaxed cut for the woman who stands her ground. Take Zimmerman, whose suits were broad-shouldered and tight, with an accentuated waist. Or follow Fendi’s example, with a grandad cardigan over an ankle-length skirt and bra, all made from quilted cotton that’s reminiscent of old-fashioned housecoats. To make pastel colours that bit less sweet, fresh white is an important counterpart. And don’t forget your accessories – oversized sunglasses, matching bags and an accent at the waist with a sturdy belt. The large earring has made a remarkable comeback, worn either as a single or as a pair. Oh, and one last thing – don’t wear romantic high-heeled shoes to match, but sturdy, flat sandals, preferably with some trendy decoration
