Shades of pastel at springtime are as rudimentary as the clocks moving forward; you just can’t have one with the other. So march into spring styled in shades of pastel, but with a twist of leisure de-rigueur.

March into Spring Styled in Shades of Pastel

On my watch list, designer Sies Marjan’s (I had the pleasure of meeting him a year ago during a lunch and trunk show at Forty Five Ten, I love his style) shiny lavender trench coat. Perfect for April showers, and worn with his silver crinkle skirt it adds colourful shimmer to a dull day, and the transparent floral jacket by Isabel Marant keeps spring fresh with floral.
