Easter Sunday means a luxurious extended weekend and endless amounts of chocolate appearing and disappearing, but more importantly it marks the arrival of ice-cream shades and sugar-coated styles making their way into our wardrobes. So spring has finally sprung and if you want to spend this bank holiday weekend in style, then a sorbet coloured dress is the perfect solution to make sure you look festive yet fashionable. Whether you prefer a classic lemon shade or like to make a statement in a pistachio eye-catcher, this season’s pastel trend offers something for every personality, to ensure you can flaunt your mood whilst making a stylish impression.


If your style is all about classic shapes and demure necklines a la Breakfast at Tiffany’s, there's no reason that you should eliminate modern trends and contemporary colours. A fitted pencil-style dress like the Kate Fearnley Laura Dress in Yellow, for £186, will satisfy your lust for classic style whilst keeping you current and on-trend in a beautiful sorbet lemon shade, which was so beautifully demonstrated on the spring summer catwalk of fashion house Rag & Bone. Accessorise with gold-accented embellished accessories for a party-proof ladylike look. Timeless with a twist!
