Trend of the week: Pale and interesting

Soft and subtle shades make long summer days a breeze. Try 90s-inspired sombre hues as seen at Acne, candy colour-blocking from Stella McCartney or John Rocha’s diaphanous confections — dreamy and aquatic.

We love the high street’s homage to the trend, especially COS, Reiss and Zara, who’ve made sorbet an office-appropriate treat.

Style Notes

* Pair a slub sorbet sweater with a fitted skirt for a new take on ‘dress down Friday’.

* Anchor pastel trousers with a nautical Breton top for Gallic style points.

* Toughen up a candy-coloured frock with biker boots or a shoulder-slung baseball jacket.

* Mix it up! Pistachio and pink look pristine together; so does mellow yellow and icy blue.
