The two colours that have been prominent during SS 2016 are rose quartz and serenity blue, both incredibly pretty pastels colours. Which raises the question, “Do pastels age you?” Regardless of this season’s fashions (as you may know, I’m not a great follower of fashion – I tend to wear what I like rather than what is ‘in’), let’s explore this question shall we?
Do Pastels Age You?
Despite the fact that many in the fashion industry would say yes, I think it’s another one of those ‘rules’ that is just begging to be broken. OK, so it’s true that as most of us age our colouring begins to fade: our skin becomes paler, our hair (unless we help it along) greys and we start to lose our youthful glow. But panic not! It’s not a case of can we wear pastels but how can we wear pastels without looking drained. Unless your aiming for pale and interesting, if so – just go for it 🙂
I think the answer to the pastel dilemma is this: if the clothing you wear is modern and it suits you and your style then you can’t help but look good in it. However, if you want to give any pastel colour a lift try adding accessories in a brighter tone.
Take this outfit for example. Alone the head-to-toe creams might have been a bit bland, but adding an aqua vest, a verona aqua and gold venetian murano glass necklace and painting my nails a very deep aqua I think it’s anything but. The necklace throws some much needed warmth onto my skin. And the nails – well they add a bit of colour in an unexpected way.

So I say don’t be told that you can’t wear something. Yes you may have to change the way you wear it if you want to hang on to as much glow as possible, but that doesn’t mean that you have to give up wearing anything you love.
