So you're a softy at heart and in wardrobe. Colors of the year may come and go, but we firmly believe that pastels are (rather ironically) evergreen...and mint, and sage, and periwinkle, and blush. You get it. Here, peruse our top tips and tricks for looking chic, current, and updated in your favorite mellow palette.
1. Jump in on the headband trend!
If you're gunning to give your audience a sweet tooth anyway, why not avail of the entire sugary package? The statement headband trend was practically made to complement your soft colors, and it looks cool in that distinct way only things we once wore in the innocence of girlhood do.
2. Choose linen.
Fresh local labels Araw and Undo provide factual evidence that the easy-breezy appeal of linen certainly isn't lost on the heat-accustomed Filipina. There's just something about the fabric that's so deeply reminiscent of endless summers spent frolicking by the sea! Team trousers like Mari Jasmine's with a matching pistachio smocked top, a straw tote, and strappy sandals.
3. Wear them on your feet.
Candy-hued kicks of the trendy chunky variety serve both the inherently sporty gal and anyone who kind of just wants a bit of fun in a traditionally functional shoe. Whatever your motives, they're absolutely valid and very, very now. Sarah Lahbati's Chanel versions are poised for serious consideration.
4. Mix and match relaxed silhouettes.
Co-ords are always a quick-chic route to take, and when you've collected enough, don't fear mixing and matching them. A cocktail of loose, loungey shapes in a confectionery's assortment of demure shades looks incomparably effortless. Just ask Georgina Wilson.
