There is something about putting on pastels that instantly lightens your mood, brightens your look and makes you want to skip your way into summer.

A candy coloured dress, suit or skirt and top is ideal if you have a wedding to attend, want to look elegant at the races or events such as the Royal Norfolk Show, and it can look super smart as part of your office attire this summer.

For example, that baby pink lace top you might usually reserve for special occasions will work well under a summer trouser suit or with a tailored skirt and jacket or lightweight cardigan.

Such is the versatility of these pretty hues, you can also inject them into your weekend wardrobe for a fresh update. Try a light denim bell-sleeved blouse with your jeans or toughen up a strapless candy cane dress with a leather or denim jacket. After all pastels don’t have to always look so sweet.
