Summer's sorbet shades
Sweet 16-ers and octogenarians pull off pastels with aplomb. For the ages in between, these hues can be a bit tricky/treacly. But after a steady diet of brilliant brights and flashes of neon, these sorbet shades might be just the palate cleanser you crave. Fresh options blend multiple shades — from cantaloupe to berry pinks and blues, as in Ted Baker's chic pleated summer dress — or mix soft pastels with unexpected prints, as at Erdem.
