Perfect Pastels

It’s official… Spring is here and it is time for transitioning your wardrobe to warmer styles and colours. From denim to two-piece ensembles, there are tons of wearable pastels out there for the spring season. Pink work attire? Why not! The best part about pastels is that they are totally wearable for any occasion. Break free from your cold weather tones and say hello to stand out hues! Here is my list for you to get inspired by perfect pastels!

Purple is a feminine colour we all can learn to love especially Lilac. Lilac is soft yet eye-catching which is why we should wear it from head to toe like blogger Vanessa Hong from Haute Pursuit. Vanessa wearing a top suit from Whistles that makes pastels stunningly chic. Tone down the colour factor with accessories by choosing all black pieces to complete you look and make it Fashionista approved… in this instance Anine Bing sunglasses and a Rachael Ruddick purse. Master lilac this season monochromatically.

Pretty in Pink
Another feminine pastel tone is light pink. We see pops of this colour more than ever nowadays and it’s ready to make another round. Dress to impress in pink with sheer details like this Carolina Hererra top and skirt set. My favourite part about this outfit is that it mixes modern style with elegance… any Fashionista can rock this! Minimal ankle tie heels, flowing sheer skirt and matching crop top make two-piece sets in pastels at the top of my must haves for spring, as well as the classic pair of RayBan sunglasses of course for the sunnier days. Take advantage of being pretty in pink in ladylike silhouettes.

Apple Mint Green
Get a little more casual chic with apple mint green denim! Yes, apple mint green is a colour! Green tones can be daunting but take a jab at an energetic approach on skinny jeans- turn a pair into your own style just like Ashley Madekwe, blogger and actress did with her denim from LF. Slipping on a pair of darker green sandal heels and a TopShop chiffon top turns simple into trendy.  There are no rules on where to wear apple mint green jeans, but my advice is take them with you anywhere! This pastel tone was made for a pair of denim.

Get in with the pantone colours of the year with Serenity. This shade of blue being a slightly darker toned pastel still makes it accessible to go with any outfit. My favourite way to wear serenity is with outerwear. Although spring is a warmer season, we still need that go to piece of outerwear like this lighter weight coat from White House Black Market. Along with J Crew pants and sweater shirt and glittered loafers, the missing piece to this ensemble was the Serenity coat after all!

Keep your look colourful! Statement coats for a pop of colour, sheer detailing, or casual finds, play with your favourite trends in a different palette than the normal. Mix up trends with new colours; you will never know the outcome until you try. Play a little more with perfect pastels!
