Menswear STYLE THE TREND Tutorials

PERFECTING PASTELS…

Pastels are becoming increasingly popular in the Menswear market. Pastel colours have been seen as quite a feminine addition to a man’s wardrobe but over the last couple of years the trend has gained momentum and power in both the high-end fashion houses and high street stores which has really put an end to that view. Anyone can add colour to their wardrobe, the key is finding the right shades and styles that suits you.

Below are several different suggestions on how to embrace the trend…

One: Go all out. Wear a head-to-toe pastel in the same colour combination for a bold, fearless approach. Pair with a plain white shirt or crew neck t-shirt for a sharp yet relaxed look.
