Must Wear Wednesday – Pastel Colors

March 21, 2018

The first day of spring has come and gone so it is officially time to break out the pastel colored clothing! The pretty pinks, soft lilac, baby blues, pale yellows, and mint green are the colors that will take over your wardrobe for the next couple of months.
Last year we were introduced to millennial pink and we all fell hard for it. I own way more pink clothing pieces right now than I ever had in my life. Now it’s time to add some more colors to the mix. We are already seeing lilac and lavender hit the stores because of the color of the year, but now that spring is officially here, more and more stores have racks of pastel colored items for us to buy!

After spending the last couple of months in blacks, blues, reds, and other dark tone colors, it is a nice change to add lighter and fresher colors into my wardrobe. The popular tops that I am seeing in every store are the front tie tops that have a knot at the bottom of the shirt. Pairing that shirt with some light-wash skinny jeans and a pair of mules or flats is the perfect spring uniform outfit.

One trend that personally took me awhile to come around to was pastel colored jeans. I was always told that lighter color jeans make your legs look wider. (Thanks to Stacy and Clinton from What Not To Wear) But, this season Old Navy has started selling some really cute jeans that come in a variety of different colors. I bought the pink pair that is the flay lay picture above. These jeans are such an easy way to add pastel colors into your wardrobe. Pair them with a white tank and a jeans jacket and you are ready to spring!

Accessories are very often overlooked when people are buying new trends for the season. Ironically they are also the EASIEST way to add color to your outfit. Jewelry, scarves, sunglasses, and bags are a great way to add color to your look without spending a lot of money. Simply by adding a baby blue bag and some pink earrings to an outfit, shows that you are ready for spring! My personal favorite this season is pastel color mules or slides. They are so incredibly easy and comfortable to wear all day long and they pretty much come in every color so they can match whatever you wear!

The beauty of buying these pastel colors items and having them in your closet is, that you know year after year you will be able to wear them. I truly don’t see the pastel trend ever going out of style for spring so you can keep them for while! So go out right now and get yourself some colorful earrings, scarves, and pants and have fun mixing and matching them all spring long!

    I love the pastel colours you listed – pink is my favourite. Just one more reason I love Spring!
    I love the look of the Lea+Viola pleated midi-skirt (it’s the pleats and the pink I love, not so much the skirt length) and the Charles Henry light blue off-shoulder Woven A-Line dress.
    I also love the OOTD you were wearing in the outfit photo above featuring the white peplum top, pink cardigan and dark blue denim jeans!
    I think I’m starting to feel an online blouse-shopping binge coming on.

      Pastel colors are the best! I am not one to wear pink all the time but this spring is different, I’m wearing pink almost every day! The pleated pink skirt is my favorite and I need to buy it right away. Thanks so much for your kind response 🙂

      Yes! It’s always a great feeling when you can finally break out your fun colored clothing after wearing nothing but black and grey all winter long.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
