Colours to use in the Airy Styles trend

When selecting your pieces for this trend, you should consider cream and neutral tones, pastel colours, simplistic white garments and black complementing pieces. 

Cream and neutral tones – Using these colours for the outfit’s base will allow you to confidently embody the trend and help create a feminine edge to your look. Opt for lighter tones, such as cream, beige and white, to elevate your Airy Styles aesthetic, and when combined with the right fabric, you will be onto a winner. 

Pastels – Most airy-styled looks will use pastel and muted colours in some shape. Whether this is incorporated into a top, floaty trousers, or even a jacket. You can use pastels as a main element of your outfit and opt for neutrals in other areas. 

White and black pieces – Used to contrast your airy ensemble, black and white garments are often simplistic and chic in style and can elevate your airy pieces.
