If there’s one prediction from last year’s forecast that rings true for Spring / Summer  ’18, it’s gelato shades, a subdued version of their sorbet sisters. From mauve and mint to blush, these pastel hues are a hit with celebrities and street style stars. 

Lilac crush
These lavender rimless sunglasses are by Alexander McQueen. Made in Italy, the aviator style shades have gold-toned detailing which lends some class to this retro number. Rs.35,545 approximately

Powder play
Adeam’s Resort ’18 collection presents this asymmetric ruffled crepe midi dress. Designer Hanako Maeda was influenced by her time at the New York City Ballet Gala and hence the powder-blue dress has a fluid silhouette and ruffles. Rs.93,081 approximately 

Going pink
Get set for that beach vacation in this off-shoulder swimsuit from Karla Colletto. The Mondria suit is in a delicate shade of blush with adorable ruffles at the shoulders. Team with oversized sunnies and a fruit cocktail, we say. Rs.30,870 approximately

Sheer brilliance
This blouse from Prada takes inspiration from the Belle Epoque era, known for luxury and opulence. The piece is crafted from crisp organza with a pleated bib and iridescent mother of pearl buttons at the back. The sheer top comes with a lace-trimmed silk camisole. Rs.1,05,934 approximately

Arm candy
The Nile Bag by Chloe comes in a pastel-yellow “lemonade” colour which is inspired by the Palm Springs sky. Made with leather and suede, it has a small golden strap as well as a long crossbody strap that lends to its versatility. Rs.1,24,180 approximately 

Leather forecast
Made from blush pink leather, this pair of sneakers from Common Projects speaks to a minimalist aesthetic. Made in Italy, it has a low top silhouette, a rubber sole and a print of the brand’s signature golden serial number at the heels. Rs.23,675 approximately
