Let’s face it, between the bad news cycle and the recent spate of rainy weather, the last thing you want to do is feel all gloomy in your grey sweatpants for another day. So as we enter into Phase 2 of post-circuit breaker, use this newfound time out of the house to imbue a little joy back into your sartorial attire.

One easy way to do so? Pastels. Cropping up across the runways from Fendi and Max Mara’s SS20 collection and dripping into Givenchy’s PF20 looks, it seems like the fashion pack is once again finding love with sherbet hues of lemon yellow, sky blue and lilac.

For us, pastels will always remind us of a joyful afternoon in the sun. It evokes memories of melted ice cream on a beachside boardwalk, a radiant sunset painting the sky in shades of pink and orange, and the hazy afternoons spent lounging on our couch. All those good vibes can be found in these pastel-perfect pieces.
