If you’re not convinced that floral and pastels are for you, the designing duo behind New Zealand label, Ketz-ke share some of their top tips on how to make these embodiments of fun summer fashion work for you.
Can anyone wear pastels?
Everyone can wear pastels but your skin tone and eyes can help determine which pastel hue is the best for you. Seafoam green and light blue are for anyone with green or blue eyes, lilac and rosy pink will always look good on girls with warmer complexions and for those with dark hair and brown eyes go for sky blue and lavenders.
Can you wear pastels and floral together?
This combination looks fantastic together. Just pick out a colour from the floral print that is close to a pastel shade and use this to team together
What accessories would you recommend when wearing florals or pastels?
Pastels and florals look gorgeous teamed with metallic coloured accessories. Silver shoes are always a winner with a pastel dress. Grey and cream accessories work well with prints as these are very non conflicting colours.
Are there any occasions where you should avoid wearing florals and pastels?
Toss all the old rules of what colours to wear and when - pretty pastels and florals provide a much needed pick me up and can be worn on any occasion - don't conform - create your own style and never be afraid to look different from the crowd!!!
How can one wear floral without being too "bloomy"?
Smaller floral prints are the easiest to wear, whether you are wearing a floral top, skirt or pant. Team florals back with neutrals and pastels to keep your look fresh and more alive, rather than always choosing black which can sometimes lose the effect of the soft summer look.
Can anyone wear floral prints?
This summer season especially is the time to be wearing florals and yes they are for everyone. If you are the daring fashion wearer, more than one floral can be worn at once, as long as the florals are kept small and there is a neutral colour to team florals together with.
