With changing seasons you get to see many changing fashion trends. Where winters are all about long fur coats, boots and dark earthy tones, summers talk about loose summery dresses, sandals, cropped trousers and cool colours. The brighter the sun shines, the more people prefer to be in colours that are cool and in pastel shades. So if you want to revamp your wardrobe for spring summer 2016, then it is time to say goodbye to all your dark colours and get into the summer feel with shades of pinks, yellows, and blues.
In the summer heat, it is very difficult to wear dark toned colours that seem to absorb all the heat of the world. There is nothing more comforting and soothing than to wear light colours in scorching summer heat. Not only for the person wearing it but these colours tend to create a very soothing effect for the spectators as well. You walk around in a market; your eyes will automatically be attracted towards the light summery colours. It is for this reason that many designers are experimenting with these shades of pinks, blues, yellows and peaches in their summer collection to create a soothing summer hue in their range.
Not only on the runways, these colours are making their way into casual clothing as well. You will find t-shirts, dresses and trousers in these colours that speak of summer and spring. Check out these Robell trousers for example, with many pastel and bright shades available. Brides and even bridesmaids prefer wearing these colours to look more fresh and light.
Are the pastel colours made for everyone?
Well, if you can carry them nicely then you can wear any colour you want. But it is suggested that the ladies with paler skin tones should avoid wearing pastel colours. These colours, instead of making them look fresh, give them a lethargic look when the light tones reflect on their pale skin, making them look even paler.
Instead of following all fashion trends blindly, you should be aware of what suits you and what doesn’t. Go for the colours and clothes that complement your body and skin tone. For people with pale skin, it is suggested that they go for darker pastel colours since they highlight their features and avoid the palest shades.
So you might see designers and celebrities going crazy over pastel colours, but only go for them if you think you can pull them off with style. There is no point in following a fashion trend just for the sake of following it if it doesn’t look good on you.
Fashion is nothing if it doesn’t suit you. The pastel trend might be a massive fashion trend for spring summer 2016, but the hues will only bring you down if they don’t seem to complement your body type and accentuate your skin tone. Make sensible fashion choices and only go for trends that are meant for you.
