We all know pastels are having a moment. But there is one sugary shade that is currently a little more fashion than the rest – and that’s lilac. So if you’re not having any of it when it comes to pale, girly colours – perhaps this is the one to tempt you into a slightly more sophisticated way of working the trend.

Teaming with navy blue will look ultra chic, while mustard (like Giovanna Battaglia, above) is unexpected, but works beautifully.
I love the idea of mixing tones of dusty pink, grey and lilac together like Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper Girl blog (top image) – lilac and grey will look stunning as they are both similarly cool shades.
