Before I start this post I have to say this: New Look has always been in my top three retailers, but now they’re an absolute favourite as they now do a petite range, hooray 5’ 3” and unders!
Soft and chalky pastel tones are back to be embraced this season with many thanks to Miu Miu and Lanvin’s SS13 runway shows setting the trend, it was only normal that New Look, a trendy high street retailer be the first to sport a vast range of styles to choose from.
All the items in this outfit can be found in New Look stores or their eCommerce site; they’re stocking some great icy tones and pastel pallets which celebrate this wonderfully pleasant trend. Nude tones are also a comeback and due to their neutral tone they can be paired with many outfits. People often opt for dark or black shoes as they usually go with any item worn, however nude tones are less harsh and are a versatile add on for your outfit. This look has a slight grunge feel due to the use of denim and statement jewellery, I think I’m pretty well known for doing this is and it’s purely personal taste however you can still opt for the same colours in other lighter fabrics such as laces, tulles and chiffons, or perhaps use pearls and simple gold pendants for subtle glamour. What’s excellent about New Look is that they always have a stunning variety of denim jackets that fit wonderfully on the body and are incredibly versatile for any wardrobe. The brand is also renowned for its excellent selection of shoes in many different heights and styles; here I have selected a mid-heel nude shoe to tone down the floral print on the tapestry skirt. They can be worn with or without the light crochet tights; personally I think they’re useful for the slightly chillier days but it’s completely optional. The bag is simple with minimum texture which brings immediate focus to the beautifully printed yet neutral skirt, also note that you shouldn't be afraid to mix in some patterns and prints, pastels are all about colour and having fun with layering so long as the hues are soft.
Not keen on the skirt? Don’t forget to take a look at their wonderful cream dresses that will complement the outfit above beautifully.
