Arguably the biggest trend of 2013, viagra pastels are sticking around this season too. Sugary, sweet, macaroon shades swamped the catwalks at Fashion Week, with designers such as Burberry Prorsum and Christopher Kane dressing their models in head-to-toe saccharine tones. Pastels are a simple way to add a burst of springtime freshness into your wardrobe. The best thing about pastels is they suit everybody, whether you’re pale, olive or dark, there’s a shade for everyone.

I’ve selected some of the best high street pastel pieces. Keep in mind that pastel is one of the most malleable trends out there. If you’re up for it opt for head to toe in your selected sugary shade. Dare to be different? Colour blocking pastels was a hit at 3.1 Philip Lim and Versus, Versace. And, as for those of us who aren’t one for colour but would like to add a flash of sweetness, team pastels with greys, blacks, beiges or white for a subtle take on the trend.
