Shop The Global African Autumn/Winter 2012 Trend: Pleasant Pastels
“Sweeeeet like Candyyyy” da di dooo. Yes everyone, if you haven’t noticed this trend making its way out of the candy store and onto the runways then you must be on a diet. Pastels, sorbets, sweet soft and salivating – one trend I cannot get enough of. Now some of you may be like me and have been on this fad for a while, Pastels are like denim, you can whip them out any time of the year and not cause a fashion fuss, though western labels such as Louis Vuitton have heavily popularised this trend, pairing pastel on pastel – going th whole nine yards. Our very own designers such as Thabani Mavundla [SAFW] and Laameez Claasen [SAFW] have also taken their own spin and infused it onto the runways which we have recently witnessed through ARISE, NYFW, JFW and so forth. Just like many of the trends we’ve highlighted – if you’re going to rockit, go all the way. Pastel squared or even pastel to the power of three, its all gravy. Grab yourselves a signature pastel blazor (they will never go out) or even a pair of cute high waisted tailored shorts in a mint green. A full white ensemble is always set alive matched up with a set of pastel pink pumps and Solange knowles showed us how well a pastel yellor Razorfront dress goes alongside some pastel pink flatforms. If you don’t know where to start, draw some inspiration from below. Have fun with it.
