Speak softly and carry a pink lipstick.
Dressing softly doesn’t equate to looking dainty, meek, timid or bland, because we know all too well that there are few greater crimes against fashion than looking bland.
Though spring is the perfect time to turn to a palette that includes soft pastels, the philosophy behind softness doesn’t mean limiting yourself to shades of lavender, pink, powder blue and pale yellow.
A life well-lived never, ever includes the word limit, and neither should your imagination when it comes to dressing.
Light cashmere sweaters are the epitome of soft, as well as being an invaluable wardrobe essential. Unless you live in a climate controlled bubble, it’s all about layering, but this story doesn’t end with cashmere sweaters.
“A thousand dreams within me softly burn.” Arthur Rimbaud
