Like ice cream and sunny days, wearing pastels is synonymous with summer and lilac is the sorbet to be sporting this season. More grown up than sugary pink and more flattering than lemon (pallor inducing on 90% of the population), it’s a surprisingly wearable option.

Lilac works for all skin tones and ages, as a less girly but still feminine option for your little one, and it’s also the perfect colour to flatter sun kissed skin. Choose from pinker shades or duskier tones with hints of grey for a more sophisticated take. Team with palest denim for off duty days or crisp white for effortless summer work-wear style.
Here are my picks for you and your little girl – aren’t the Mini Melissa’s just adorable?
