Let’s talk spring trends! I want to have different posts on different trends that I’ve seen both on the runway and also on the streets and put things together with my personal ideas. So as my first post, I’m going to talk about pastel shades!
I love pastel shades because I believe it gives a soft and extremely feminine look on any woman. Light and breezy fabrics add to that feeling of spring in the air and who can say no to baby blues, buttery yellows and pastel pinks?
Whether it’s a dress you’re wearing or a pair of jeans and a t shirt, I think it’s super easy to pair pastels wherever you go. If it’s a brunch, let it be a chiffon dress. If it’s a casual lunch date, let it be a skirt and pastel blouse. If it’s an afternoon out with the girls, let is be a pair of pastel jeans and a white tee. It’s just that easy. I got myself three pairs of pastel jeans that I can’t wait to wear in the next couple of days. I got them in baby pink, baby blue and lavender.
If you’re not all in to the whole pastels thing, I bet you’ve got at least one pastel shade pair of shoes in your closet somewhere. Once again, it’s super easy to work with pastel pairs of shoes because they go with just about anything you own. I’ve got plenty of pastel flats that I wear on a day-to-day basis, which are also super comfy and durable.
How cute and adorable do these handbags look? It’s like spring calling out in every sense of the shade ha ha! I don’t know about pairing some of my outfits with such pastel shade handbags simply because in a tropical country like where I live it would get dirty in just a week (what with all the dust and dirt in the air) but I think many can rock this combination with even a complete pastel or non-pastel outfit.
Let’s not forget the makeup shall we??? With the release of the movie Cinderella, there was this MAC range of pastel shaded makeup and I simply fell in love with those colours. Pastel makeup isn’t easy to work with but using single eyeshadows on the complete lid of the eye does create a very ethereal and feminine look, if that’s what you’re going for.
Stay tuned for more spring updates in the coming days!
