Kick off spring with yummy, sweet, delicate and delicious pastel colors like fresh mint, lilac, apricot and lemony sorbet. Pastel tones are so refreshing for spring and are a great way to revamp your wardrobe.
This feminine and flattering color story is also very sophisticated this season. Pastels are a great way to incorporate color into your wardrobe without being too bright. It's time to start shopping for spring and the simplicity of pastels is a nice and gentle way to refresh your harsh brights and winter monochromes.
Stand out in a sweet and flattering pastel maxi dress or a delicate chiffon button down shirt. Pair this look with a tonal accessory. Work the pastel trend into your accessories by carrying a pastel shoulder bag during the day and a pretty sorbet-colored clutch at night. A pastel necklace or bracelet will also add some interest to your outfit if you are someone who wears a lot of neutrals. Paint your nails violet or soft turquoise to brighten up your day, or throw on some pink lipstick to change up the mood. Though soft and subtle, pastels can still be vibrant.
If you are trying for an edgy look, pair a pastel top with ripped jeans and a leather biker jacket. A pastel blazer is also an easy way to add a little color to your daily wardrobe and can easily be thrown on with jeans or a dress. For the remaining cooler days, try pairing a pastel sweater with your favorite jeans, or a white button down (or t-shirt) with a pair of pastel-colored jeans. Or you can go really pastel crazy and wear a whole color block of pastels with a chunky pastel sweater and coordinating blouse, pastel jeans and a matching handbag. This look is super chic, but definitely not for every woman.
Have fun with the pastel trend- it's not super serious and is a great way to have fun with color. Just make sure not to wear too many pastels at once; you don't want to look like the easter bunny!
