I’m not lucky enough to live in a tropical climate, so I have to suffer through a cold, grey and miserable winter. It won’t be until towards the ends of March, when I will get to see a significant improvement in the weather. When I will actually want to get out from under the duvet and go outside. So, since I have at least 6 weeks before I can shed my layers and emerge from by padded cocoon, I have been looking to the fashion trends of Spring/Summer 2018 to get myself prepared.
When I shed my layers and reveal myself for Spring, I want to do so in something light and happy. This drew me to the Ice Cream trend that set to be big in the warmer months. It was a big feature on the Spring/Summer 2018 catwalks, with the likes of Michael Kors, Tom Ford, Victoria Beckham and Hermes, including it in their collections. The ‘Ice Cream’ trend is all about head-to-toe colour blocking of dreaming gelato shades – think pistachio, lavender, lemon sorbet and creamy vanilla. It is one of those super easy trends, all you need are some super cute pastel pieces, and wear them all together…accessories included.
You may already have the pieces you need to create the ‘Ice Cream’ trend in your wardrobe. Just pick out all the pastel items you have, and see how they will work together in an ensemble. You would be surprised how well soft yellow works with airy lavender. If you don’t have any yummy ice cream colours in your wardrobe, I’ve got all the inspiration you need, courtesy of the hundreds of brands featured in the Xwalker catalogue.

There was almost too much choice when it came to ice cream colours to rock in the Spring. I chose some of my favourites, and I can guarantee whatever tasty ice cream-inspired pieces you choose, you will look good enough to eat.
