Whether you like buying into trends or prefer to stick with the basics, you need to add pastel to your wardrobe. With Spring right around the corner, we’re ready to trade in our leather bomber jackets for something a little lighter. Though pastels for spring have been done time and again, we’re convinced there’s a reason clichés (and trends) exist. You have to admit, there’s something instantly comforting about pale pinks, powder blues, and generally softer hues.
A pastel-hued ensemble can make you appear younger, more fun and cuter! However, the saccharine sweetness does make this a tricky trend to master, so here are some styling tips and tricks to try to make pastels work for well.
1. Monochrome. Choose one color and stick with it throughout your outfit. Try it with one of spring’s other big trends.
2. Mixed Pastels. Pair a few different pastel colors together for a soft yet bold look.
3. With Neutrals. Make your pastel piece pop by keeping the rest of your color palette simple.
4. With Brights. Add a little edge to the softness of the pastel with bright, fun accessories.
