Pastels are synonymous with spring, but they are not just to be worn on Easter. Pastels are feminine, fun and perfect for brightening up any day. Recently, many celebrities have been pairing blush pinks and buttercup yellows with other neutrals to create sophisticated looks.

One of the more trendy ways pastels have been worn has been in outerwear. This Fashionista chose to style her basic outfit with a blush leather jacket. Typically leather jackets read a little more rock ‘n’ roll. Changing the color from the typical black to an atypical blush tone can help you to wear one of you favorite wintertime essentials in the spring. It is unexpected, so it is an attention getter. The combination of the leather and the blush does not make the color childish but rather cool and sophisticated for spring.

This Fashionista layered her jacket over a simple white T-shirt and black circle skirt. Investing in a black circle skirt that looks great on you and is good quality is well worth it because they can be paired with everything. Whether you are going to class, a family function or out with your girlfriends, a circle skirt can be styled to fit the occasion.

She finishes her look off with some Sperry Top-Siders, which make the outfit a little more casual for walking across campus. She keeps her accessories to a minimum, wearing only a simple silver necklace and sunglasses.
