FASHION FROM ABROAD: Perfect in Pastel

It is that time again: pastels are making their way back into people’s wardrobes. With spring in the air, minty greens and pale pinks are being worn more frequently not only on the streets but on the runway. There is nothing like opening up your window, seeing the sun and putting on your favorite shade of pastel to celebrate a spring day. Clothes in this color palette are not the only popular trend though, pastel nail polishes and makeup are becoming trendier to sport as well.

I had to stop this Fashionista on her lunch break to snap a quick photo. Wearing a pale pink maxi skirt and a light wash chambray, she was a breath of spring air. Mixing two different light colors gave her a fresh look. The buttons add a unique twist to a simple maxi skirt. The high-waisted tailoring allows for a flattering look for any figure. Adding a black chunky infinity scarf mixes a wintery trend into her ensemble, making the outfit not overly seasonal.

The fear that most people have about wearing pastels is looking like an Easter egg. The key is mixing pastels into your everyday wardrobe so they’re a statement piece, and not over the top. Take this sea foam Zara blazer and pair it with a black skirt. For the warmer days, try this Free People maxi dress and top it off with a neutral scarf. Mix two trends and buy a pair of pastel color treated pants from Anthropologie. If you are still overwhelmed with pastels, try working this Essie lilac nail polish into your collection. Don’t be afraid to play with different colors, pastels do not always have to be overpowering!
