How to wear pastels
Candy colours took the Indian runways by storm as designers from Rahul Mishra to am:pm by Ankur & Priyanka Modi created ensembles in soft pastel shadestailor made for hot summer days. If you're worried you'll look washed out in lighter hues, follow Vogue.in's lead to nail the trend for all occasions.
Brunch: Daytime is the best time to wear these paler shades. Think back to your favourite sorbet colours when you head shopping this season. We love these orange shorts by Versace,especially paired with a white vest for a lazy brunch. Thakoon Addition's floral dress should also help you set the mood for a summer soiree.
Work: Just because it's work wear doesn't mean you have to stick to a staid palette of black and grey. Add a feminine touch to your look and still be taken seriously with Stella McCartney's twill jacket. Pair Proenza Schouler's skirt with a crisp white shirt and Isharya's drop earrings to show who's boss.
Evening: The trickiest time to wear pastels is during the evening, but take a hint from Freida Pinto who opted for a pastel gown with embellishment for a night out. We suggest opting for this pink embellished shift from FCUK. Alternatively, these satin pumps from Brian Atwood mix in pastel and bling to help you ease into this trend.
