Pastels are a hot commodity for spring. Though this color trend isn’t new….freshen the way you wear the trend. Wear a monotone pastel color from head to toe, including bags, shoes, and jewelry. Or pair one pastel color, such as mint, with white to look current and chic. White wide leg trousers are this season’s chicest pants and perfect to pair with pastels.
Pastels can be worn at any age but the trick is in how you put your look together to look age appropriate and fresh versus too young and girly. Monotone pastels and pairing with neutrals such as light gray, navy, and white are timeless! While lighter shades generally look better on darker skin tones, those with light coloring can wear it too. The key is in choosing the right tone of the pastel color. Blush and light mint green can be challenging for pale coloring so look for a deeper version of the hue or pair it with neutrals around your face. Try pastel accessories such as purses, heels and jewelry.
