Trend Alert: Pastels-Clothing


Since pastels are something that play a huge part in the spring time, i thought i would do a little series on all things pastel! Pastel clothes, pastel shoes, pastel nail polish, pastel accesories, pastel everything! So, obviously, from the pictures above you can probably guess that this first post is going to be on pastel clothing. Lets get started..

Pastel clothing is something really easy to rock, but with certain things, it can get a little crazy looking and just be too much. The thing with pastels is that you have to be careful not to, mix clashing colors in a tacky way. But just like regular colors, color blocking can also be done and look totally amazing! When mixing colors though, it is important to go with colors that coordinate. Look at a color wheel to see exactly how you would go about this and get some ideas.

Mint green is one of my favorite pastels this year. In the pictures above, i have a picture that has mint green pastels.
Another one of my favorite pastels, are corals! I have recently been loving the way these colors look, with whites, or taupes and tans, for a very nice crisp and clean look. With the colors been pastels though, it is always super playful, fun, and just very spring-ish!

I have never been one to like the look of pairing like colors on top of one another no matter what the color, so some of my favorite way to wear pastels are:
-with whites, tans, and taupes, for a really chic, but fun and playful look. The are not clashing, and it can be dressed up or down fairly easy.
-with jeans or denim. This way is super cute and casual. Probably my most favorite of them all. This way it can be worn just about anywhere for just about any ocassion. What i really love about this way of styling is, the effotless look you can achieve this way. It doesnt look like you are trying too hard and you look super cute.
-The last way is color blocking pastels. This personally think this way is super cute, fun and playful looking. I love that it can be casul, but you can also dress this look up at the same time. If you style this the right way, i think it can be totally acceptable to be worn for a ton of events. Especially cute for the spring and summer time!
