Bargain Buys: Pastel Trend SS13
This Bargain Buys is devoted to the Pastel Trend for Spring Summer 2012/13.
After last summer's colour blocking with brights, we're seeing a softer palette of gelato shades coming through this Spring.
Here are some bargainista buys for this trend with change from a fifty.
If you have to pick one shade to update your wardrobe with, I'd say go for mint. Pictured intro image left, Ezibuy.co.nz Urban Sundress in Mint on sale for $30, now halfprice. Below: Here's Garage from The Warehouse's soft coloured jean in mint $35 and a faux snake mint flat; the Garage Grace Shoe in Gumdrop $12.
If you know me, you know I'm a big fan of dusky pink anytime, any weather. Garage have done a drop waist soft pink shirt dress for $29, and Farmers hit the lace trend AND pastels on the button with this bomber jacket gone girly. Ignite Platinum Lace Jacket $49.99.
Summer's big news - orange - gets diluted down to peach and melon. Below: Garage Frilled Dress in Peach $25
These shades go well with contrasting pastel shoes, such as this Bamber Wedge in Lemon from Number One Shoes for $49.99 online at www.numberoneshoes.co.nz
or the safe bet for every colour - metallics. Below: A summer sandal new in store at Hannahs, and online at www.hannahs.co.nz, GB Sandal in Gold $49.99.
And the perfect spring accessory? A gelato, of course!
