Question: What are some pastel fashion tips for spring 2014?
Answer: Nothing screams spring like pastels. Lavender, emerald and peach (to name a few) are some of our favorite spring hues. You will soon be seeing pastels in every piece of clothing and accessory around. Here are some simple ways you can incorporate pastels into your wardrobe:
Bold and lovely accessories
Yes, pastels can be intimidating. Looking for an easy way to get started? Simply incorporate pastel pieces with a few fun accessories. Pair a pastel shirt with a statement necklace for a bold, chic look. If you prefer your pastel on purses only, pair your outfit with a nice pastel clutch or bag. You can easily turn a simple outfit into pure fashion using the power of pastel accessories.
Want to mix it up? Give your nails a feminine touch by painting them a pastel hue.
Top and sweaters
What better way to transition from winter to spring than an amazing pastel sweater? It’ll provide you with the necessary warmth for those chilly days—plus, you’ll look utterly fabulous. You can trade an ordinary t-shirt for a pastel top and pair it with some jeans or white pants. For those colder spring days, throw a leather jacket over those pastels for an edgy look that’s to-die-for.
When it comes to pastels, color blocking can go one of two ways: you can either succeed and create a soft romantic look, or fail and look like an Easter egg. How to pull it off? Keep it simple. Don’t add tops with tons layering or ruffles. This will make the look a bit overwhelming. If you keep the top simple, it will give your outfit a cohesive, feminine look. Try wearing a lighter pastel on top and bright bottoms; this is an easy way to color block pastels.
