Pastels are the number one springtime essential. It is the one element of spring style that never disappears year after year. As soon as the warm weather forecast pops up on the television screen, Fashionistas are in their closets breaking out the pastels. It’s a great feeling knowing that you have something to start off the new season. Usually, there are seasonal new essentials that hit the store racks just as the weather is changing. Pastels are that one element that you always know will work come April.
This Fashionista embraced her pastel collection as the warmer temperatures started melting away the last of the snow. She combined a few pastel colors into one complete look, reminding me of something you would see in the Hampton’s episodes of Gossip Girl. The characters in those episodes always remind me of a garden of flowers, similar to the look of this Fashionista.
To achieve a look like this for the spring, start with an essential spring element — scarves. They come in so many patterns, colors and styles that every Fashionista has a dozen to choose from. J.Crew Factory’s Lightweight Long Printed Scarf in spearmint white would be perfect for the spring. Pair it with a muted yellow top and a jean jacket for a springtime outing, like shopping or lunch. For an infinity style try American Eagle Outfitters’s Tie-Dyed Fringe Scarf. The peach and mint combo works great together. Another infinity style is from Anthropologie. The Blurred Watercolors Infinity Scarf screams springtime. This piece is so versatile, it could be used for casual daytime wear or dressed up for a day of interning with a blazer or dress. Pieces that work for multiple occasions are always a great buy.
So pull those pastels out from the back of your closet and get them ready for the upcoming springtime in northeast Pennsylvania.
Spotted: Mulberry’s spring 2013 collection features pastel scarves in peach and mint. The solid colors allow Fashionistas the chance to layer the scarf over a printed tee or dress. They offer so many possibilities that it would allow for endless wears.
