How To Wear Spring’s Prettiest Pastels

This spring’s pretty pastel colors aren’t just for dying Easter eggs anymore. In fact, there are quite a few very chic options that are popping up in our favorite stores this season. Don’t worry if pastels aren’t something that typically get play in your wardrobe. I have a few tips to share with you that will make wearing this Spring’s prettiest pastels easier than an Easter egg roll.

  1. Pair pastels—mint green, pale yellow or pink—with black to keep this from veering off into the land of Peptol Bismal.
  2. Start out by limiting wearing pastel to your accessories. Imagine a mint green wedge peeking out from under white jeans.  Chic, yes?
  3. Pair your pastels with other light or pale shades. But keep all of your colors in the same color family. You don’t want to look like Rainbow Bright, right?
  4. It might help to try to stay away from pastels with super girly details. Pastels plus yards of bows, tulle and lace will make you look a little girl on Easter again.
  5. Makeup or nail polish is a great way to look current without doing too much. Lavender eyeliner or polish would work for most skin tones.

Will you try out wearing a few pretty pastels this Spring? What is your favorite pastel to wear? Let me know in the comments!
