4 Cool Ways To Wear Summer Sorbet Shades

Embrace your girly side with fresh summer colours and fabulous scents…

This is a InStyle Advertorial.

Sorbet shades are back in a BIG way for SS16 and the outfit possibilities are pretty much endless. Sunny days are the perfect time to introduce pastel combos to your wardrobe - but it’s how you put them together, the details, shapes and textures you opt for that will really up your fashion kudos.

Primrose yellow

The season’s chicest standout shade is best worn in delicate, sheer lace or floaty organza. If you’re worried about looking too Belle from Beauty and the Beast, toughen up a long-line, feminine dress with tomboy trainers or leather nude flats. For inspo, look to beauties Jessica Chastain and Amal Clooney who’ve both stepped onto the red carpet in gorgeous yellow frocks.


Blush pink is a key colour for SS16 and everyone from Kirsten Dunst to Emma Roberts is wearing it. Whether you opt for a pastel-perfect bomber, a throw-and-go shirt dress or introduce this must-have hue to your look with pretty pink shoes or rose-gold accessories – it’s a guaranteed way to refresh your look. Look out for a wave of pale pink denim and rose cottons on the high street for easy-to-wear day options.

Soft lilacs

Kate Hudson wowed at Cannes in a pale princessy gown, new bangs and Farrah Fawcett hair flicks, and has set the tone for soft, muted lilacs on the red carpet. The easiest way to channel this shade? Invest in a long-line summer trench or statement box-clutch in lilac or opt for faux fur accessories - we can’t get enough of the fun trend for furry pom-poms and panelling.

Powder blue

Serene blue hues are easy to work into your summer outfits. A pair of high-waist fitted shorts teamed with a simple vest and an oversized, pearly-white blazer is an effortlessly stylish way to tap into the sorbet trend. Mixing a multitude of pastel tones into one look will make sure you stand out from the crowd and offset your summer tan, too – win, win!
