A funny thing happened at Fashion Week this season — designers appeared to agree on the same colour palette, sticking to sugary shades for Spring Summer 2014/15. We totally get it. . . Pastels are just so pretty, so feminine. Michael Lo Sordo, Alice McCALL, Bianca Spender, and By Johnny are just some of the names who debuted pastel on the runway.  Plus, the street style crowd seems to be getting on board with the new spectrums of shades too. To us, the shift is like a breath of fresh air, and we're more than happy to hit refresh on last year's mostly black and white colour scheme. And let's face it; nothing feels more appropriate for Spring weather than sweet and girly, soft colours. 

So, what drew these designers to the decision that fairy-floss pink and lemon-sorbet yellow should be on the agenda in Spring? On the international style circuit, pastels (particularly pale, pale pink), are trending next season, so it feels entirely appropriate that our local designers would take the colour influence on board. Acne had the blues in Paris, presenting pops of dusty denim shades, while Chanel pulled off pale pink and Chloé wowed with butter yellow.

While many of our design favourites have a shared love for pastels at the moment, they're suggestions we style it in completely different ways. At Michael Lo Sordo, it's about loosely-fitted suits and head-to-toe tonal colour. At By Johnny, the runway recommends mixing your top pastels together. Either way, we're sold. Keep scrolling to see which labels showcased sugary shades on the recent Fashion Week runways in Australia.
