26th June 2016.

Want a killer look that’s seriously sweet like candy? Working pastels into your wardrobe can be a little tricky, especially knowing how much is too much and when too much becomes oh-so-fashion, sweetie dahhhhling. Well never fear, PDHQ are here to help you figure out whether it’s minty fresh, perfectly peach, a little nude, pink or baby blue for you! So get the sweet like candy look now and take pick ‘n’ mix from sweet treat to all-out style!

PERFECT YOUR PASTELS

Pastel colours are oh-so-summer ‘16, but they’re definitely here to stay, so stock up on your pastel shoedrobe early and make sure you’re looking sweeter than the confectionery aisle stat.

BOSS BOOTS

The perfect way to make a sweet like candy statement is to go for a pastel boot. Work in the shoe style of the season with a hint of colour and you’re already looking like a tooth ache!

Mix up a basic outfit with the CHLOE BOOT in baby blue or pink with a contrasting Perspex heel for an ootd that’s definitely Insta-worthy. We’re sensing the Dior vibes and we are all. Over. It.

Wanna go a little more sports luxe? Go for the ALISSA BOOT in blue or pink, and if the colour’s a little too much, go for a subtle shade that lets the colour pop heel do the talking! Perfect to pair with a slouchy athleisure look for added edge.

If you’re a less-is-more kinda girl, then go for the LIA BOOT in pink, nude or even white. Team with relaxed fit denim and a white shirt for all kinds of sass with minimum effort (ideal).

GETTIN’ ZIGGY WITH IT

Time to say ‘yes’ to those ’70s revival vibes and think modern-day Ziggy Stardust. Platform heels are back for good and we’re in love! Get ahead of the curve and land a killer pair now or regret it later. Pick out a pastel shade for a super-sassy way to work the sweet like candy look into your shoedrobe!

Go for the SKY PLATFORM BOOTS in pink faux suede for those pretty, party vibes, or mix it up in the JESSA CHUNKY BOOTS for some traffic-stopping steeze in block colours or with a contrast heel. Ideal for a night-time (or daytime!) look that is sure to turn heads. Max out the retro feel of the season, grab your flares and you’ll be disco-ready before you can blame it on the boogie.

VA-VA-VELVET

Talk about a velvet crush. Nothing makes a pastel dream better then throwing in some crushed velvet (insert heart-eye-emoji here). The NYA BOOT is all kinds of a must-add-to-bag situation, mixing velvet with pretty pastels for a look that’ll see you all the way through SS’16 and into AW!

For a daytime ootd, work velvet pastels in with a basic summer dress – super easy and lets your booties do the talking. At night, add the drama and go all black errrthang, except for the pop of colour that’ll keep you dancing until dawn!
