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!
