This year see’s a continuation for our love of all things British in the lead up to London 2012. We couldn’t help but come over slightly patriotic at HQ this week and realised the perennial summer staple lies in a range of highly convenient colours of Jeanography Jeans – We like to call them optimistic British brights? Don’t you agree?
If pastel shades remind you of weddings and the Easter bunny then think again! Pastel shades will be one of the biggest trends for Spring/Summer 2012 so it’s time to get your head around how to make this trend work. The best way to wear this trend is to stay away from the sickly-sweet colours normally associated with pastels, and instead go for lighter hues of more unusual colours, such as those seen on the catwalk at Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Dior, Marc Jacobs and Christopher Kane. Wearing pastel shades doesn’t have to mean frilly, pretty ruffles and ribbons. The best way to do this trend justice is to look for items in pastel shades that are offset by edgier shapes and fabrics. Or for a quick and easy nod to the trend match your pastels with darker shades of the same colour.
This season’s collection from Joe’s features a kaleidoscopic array of beautiful washed out pastel colours. Shark (I know, not very pastel sounding) are a lovely shade of dusky pink, while the more appropriately named Lily Pad remind you of Monet’s Water Lily paintings. Both are super-on-trend for Spring, so do away with your dull winter jeans and open your eyes to these new must-haves!
