- Candy colors take a grown-up turn this season. The EDIT’s KIM HERSOV shows you the new ways to wear them
The SS14 runways were awash with confectionary hues, with cutting-edge names including Christopher Kane and Alexander Wang championing the trend. For a sophisticated refresh, look to Burberry Prorsum, whose duck-egg blue trench coats and lavender pencil skirts offer a contemporary take on saccharine shades. “Burberry Prorsum was an important show in spring’s pastel reinvention,” agrees designer and stylist Kim Hersov. “These colors are no longer too sweet or too feminine.” For a chic seasonal update, incorporate key separates in soft, sweet tones into your existing closet.
Counterbalance pastels with ‘cool’ shades, such as denim blue or fawn.

The SHEER shirt
A classic shirt is one of the most versatile pieces you can own. Opt for an ultra-pale pink hue and diaphanous fabric for a SS14 spin.
