Look pretty in pastels
Celebrities everywhere have been quick to embrace spring's return to pastel shades, keeping their styles fresh and minimal and accentuating outfits with key colours.
From lavender purple to pale aqua, light pastel shades are a sure-fire hit this season, with US actress Kristin Cavallari and stylist Caroline Sieber recently rocking pastel trousers and white top combos as they made their way round the shops.
Caroline teamed her pale blue jeans with some sensible bow courts, while Kristin worked a continental look in a lilac pair of chinos with a white three-quarter length top with fine navy stripes.
Pastels are a great way to wear colour without having to commit to big bright shades, adding an understated on-trend hue to any outfit.
Rather than mixing up a variety of pastels it's best to pick one and embrace it, that way you don't run the risk of looking too sickly sweet.
Our Bella Cardigan is a great example of a versatile and timeless piece which also perfectly sums up spring's penchant for all things pastel.
This best-selling silk and cotton-mix garment is available in a range of suitable shades such as duck egg, champagne and stone, all great for blending in a hint of colour.
With these relaxed shades feel free to match the cute and classic cardi with a simple white skirt, or a pair of grey trousers, making it suitable for both desk days and after-work dinners.
For smart casual sophistication then why not swap the cardigan for the Sally Jumper?
In a beautiful duck egg blue, this sumptuously soft design has a wide scoop neck, great for framing you shoulders while still looking laidback and loose when worn alone or under a jacket.
Worn with slim fit dark blue jeans and a pair of practical ankle boots and your weekend look is all sorted with plenty of time to consider accessories.
