As the cold weather begins to melt away, itâ€™s time to ditch the drab coats and dull layers and fit into something a little bit flirtier. Put your LBD away for a while, as this season the pastel dress is going to be huge.
If you want to see just how this look is carried off then check out the models at West Coast Cooler FASHIONWEEK, which kicks off this week on Tuesday March 09.
With International Womenâ€™s Day celebrations throughout Northern Ireland tomorrow this is also a great look for reclaiming your feminine looks.
This trend is all about a lady-like look with ruffles and draping fabrics in colours such as dusty blue, apricot, nudes and baby pink.
However, if you feel these tones donâ€™t suit your colouring then you can still be a part of this trend by accessorising with pastel shaded bangles, shoes and bags.
Alternatively, if you feel your look is getting too girly, punk up your pastel dress with some heavy eyeliner, backcombed hair and a pair of Rihanna style studded sandals to create a modern twist which will take you into next season in style.
