MWD: LIGHTEN UP

20.04.14

Take your sartorial cue from the spring’s lighter mood and let your wardrobe follow suit. For SS14 lighten up by wearing barely-there pastel shades from head-to-toe.

Think Pink

THINK PINK

Add sprightly style to your spring wardrobe by trying pastel pink in its palest shade. A pink crew neck jumper will provide an airy aesthetic on spring days, while a salmon tailored blazer will add a breezy tailored sensibility to summer formal occasions.

Try wearing: Nassau Blazer, Elm Jumper and the Drive Shirt.

All White

ALL WHITE

Though not strictly a pastel, the purest way to lighten up your look this season is by wearing white. Go bright white, or for a softer ensemble look to creams, stones and muted whites, finishing the look with a pair of white Jack Purcell trainers.

Try wearing: Alder Shirt and the Rubus Trousers

The Blues

THE BLUES

For SS14 eschew navy and midnight shades in favour of less bold blue. Whether airforce, duck egg or cornflower, try contrasting or matching up these shades.

Try wearing: Woodland Blazer, Astley Shirt and the Garth Trousers 

Fade to Grey

FADE TO GREY

For a light look with a less severe aesthetic than white, draw upon bleached out greys, stones and other light forms of this hue. A versatile pair of grey chinos will form the staple of your summer ensembles, try pairing yours with a crew neck grey jumper for subtle textural contrast.

Try wearing: Curzon Mac, Medway Chinos and Birch Cardigan
