Pastels are undergoing a radical awakening with designers introducing new ways to incorporate them into everyday wear. Élan is one such fashion label who has given new life to muted shades by artistically crafting contemporary silhouettes that resolve all the burning questions about how to style paler hues.
The ladylike shades are tricky to pull off as they sometimes give a casual and laid-back vibe, but the new way to wear sorbet hues is by adding a defiant twist to it. It can be achieved by pairing different textures or styles together. If you want to add a bit of buoyancy to your wardrobe, look no further than Élan Essential’s new capsule which has soft shades and fuss-free silhouettes. With edgy designs over subtle base colours, you can find your comfort spot somewhere between prim and bold in this assortment.
The first of the lot is ‘Highlighter’: a muted yellow kurta with white stripes. With that origami-inspired neckline detail and structured silhouette, this fashion forward shirt is a winner for sure!
Moving on to ice-cream pink, this Irish linen kurta ‘Brush Stroke’ has a soft shade with contrasting embroidery in plum and white slashes scattered over it like paintbrush strokes. Pair it with a matching bag and ballet flats to give a chic boost to your day.
If you have never before considered wearing something artsy, ‘Blue Bird’ will implore you to think again! Set on a white relaxed base with blue abstract bird embroidery and ringlets, it’s a perfect number for those who wish to make a statement.
This grey ‘Silver Lining’ kurta stays true to its name. Rendered in a dove grey hue, the chic kurta has triangular details and lace insets to keep it trendy. The tiered sleeves add a touch of class to the understated shade. You can glam it up with a statement belt or chunky necklace.
You cannot miss out ‘Fly By Night’ due to its interesting collar neckline with a double panel shirt. It has self foliage embroidery near the cuff and it is best paired with Élan’s black pants.
Any fashion line which doesn’t have a black outfit looks incomplete and thankfully Élan also believes the same. Here we have ‘Black Bower’ which appears simple but features a lot of detailing from scalloping and loops to pretty buttons. You can pair this one with black or white pants to complete the look!
