Sunset Pastels

This was my sorbet ice cream inspired outfit for a stroll along the beach the other day. My core pastels were mint, coral and lemon. Mixing metallics with your pretty pastels creates a more defined and unique look, and gives the outfit a slightly more grown up feel.
Add a pretty pastel scarf to an outfit for a touch of sorbet if you don't want to go full on pastel.
 Footwear is a very important element when working the pastels trend. I have gone with some boyish heeled brogues, to tone the look down a tad. I would avoid anything too girly, such as mary janes, as this trend is ultra feminine and pretty, it is easy to end up looking too 'young'. So toughen your outfit up a bit with your footwear, that way it's a subtle element that doesn't overshadow the pretty!
