Some of our favorite style picks in pastels we love
You don’t have to feel like an Easter egg in order to rock some fabulous spring shades. Soft hues of blue, yellow, lavender, and pink practically scream “So long, Winter!”, but too much pastel can be a candy-colored overload.
We love the subtle hints of pastel in this springy top. On sale $15 Old Navy.
Love, love, love these Spearmint toothpick jeans. $125 J. Crew.
The key to any look? Moderation! O Magazine suggests that you try pastel accents in the form of accessories, or pair them with black or gray for a more contemporary look. Try sporting a soft, daffodil-colored T-shirt underneath your work blazer, or tuck a baby blue blouse into a sleek pair of charcoal trousers.
Add a pop of pink to any neutral look. On sale $10 Old Navy.
Love the idea of softening your look, but uncomfortable with deviating from your daily uniform? This season’s hottest make-up trends are actually cool! Pearly shades of pastel glosses, shadows, and polishes can give you a springy break from your regular makeup routine – without making you feel like a human jelly bean. Harper’s Bazaar recommends fun and flirty shades of pink for your lips and cheeks, while your eyes can have it all! Play around with bird’s egg blue, seafoam green, or peach. For a fun splash of multi-colored magic, try painting each of your nails a different shade of the pastel palette – a conversation starter that’s pretty and playful.
