What is spring without pastels, and this spring is no different, these muted colors have popped up everywhere on and off the runway. Seen in collections from Ralph Lauren, Cloé, Phillip Lim, Mulberry, and much more, Spring 2012 seems to be much more saturated in these light colors than perhaps past seasons.
Peach, Lavender, and Soft Coral are just a few of these colors that are now accessible to the mass market, you can walk into any retail store these days and get ahold of something that has been manufactured in these popular hues. Going to FIT ( with perhaps a more daring crowd of individuals) I have seen girls putting all these colors together in one outfit, and why not? However if you are more hesitant about engulfing yourself in this seasons color trend, here are a few tips on how to jump on the bandwagon conservatively:
1. Accessorize: you don’t need to dress head to toe in these colors, accessories are the best way to incorporate them into your wardrobe; perhaps a pair of sunglasses, a bag, or jewelry.
2. Colored Jeans: this trend is another topic in its own, but matching a pair of pastel jeans with a simple top makes you look trendy but classy.
3. Shoes: Like accessories shoes is an easy transition, a colorful pair of flats or as the weather gets warmer, sandals, will brighten up whatever you are wearing.
4. Paint it on: I don’t quite know how to categorize this but if you really don’t want to commit to this trend then you can always paint your nails one of these colors, these days Essie makes just about any color out there, and are sold in just about any convenience or beauty store.
