At every single show I attended at London Fashion Week this week, I saw at least one person in a pastel suit. The idea of wearing a Miami Vice–esque trouser suit in the rain in February in London might sound ridiculous, but this is a more Central line–appropriate outfit than you might think. Pale green, pink, blue and yellow suits are going to be everywhere this spring (they've already invaded Zara's new-in section), and the street style set has given us plenty of inspiration for how to wear it when we're still in the depths coat weather. The high street has really delivered with this trend, as we've spotted amazing suits in Zara, River Island and more.
Style Notes: A pastel suit looks particularly striking when paired with all-white accessories.
Style Notes: Mint green is becoming as popular as pink tailoring, and you can wear it before the weather turns with a long checked coat.
Style Notes: This lilac shade looks amazing when paired with a bold yellow.
Style Notes: Mix pastel tailored pieces to fashion your own suit like Jeanette Madsen.
Style Notes: Don't be afraid to mix up your pastels, such as this pink coat layered over Tibi's blue-satin suit.
