Who says pastels are only for spring?
The sun may be gone but the colours of summer are here to stay for AW18. Wearing pastel colours this autumn is both wonderfully unexpected but also a great way to see out this trans-seasonal time of year.
Dusty-pink, baby-blue or pale lavender? Pastel jewellery adds some elegance and femininity to an outfit. Combine light pastels with dark, rich autumnal colours to really make your jewellery pop.
Pretty in Pink
