STYLE ADVICE: Pastels

STYLE ADVICE: Pastels

As the days are getting nicer, I know most of you are pulling out those colorful pieces you own in the back of your closet. Pastels are a great choice if you want to add a little color to an outfit. The best part is pastels can be worn whenever, wherever. From preppy to edgy, chalky colors can be incorporated in any kind of outfit and can be worn by anyone as a fashion statement. What’s also great about pastels is that they can also be worn in almost any setting.

Spring is here which means it’s time to learn how to wear pastels. It is best worn during the day since they replicate the sunlight, but this doesn’t keep you from wearing them in the evening, too. There are a number of ways you can incorporate pastels into your look. They go great with other pastels and there is no doubt about that. Wearing multiple chalky colors at the same time will result in a warm and relaxed look. But be careful, as you can run a serious risk of looking like salt-water taffy. Also, if you find yourself wearing an all-neutral outfit, you can break it up by changing one of the pieces with a pastel one.

This Fashionisto is wearing neutral blue jeans cuffed at the bottom with a button-down pastel T-shirt that adds just enough color to brighten up the look. Cuffing the jeans just enough to get a sneak at his colored socks also gives this look a touch of detail. As for accessories, he is wearing white Vans along with a pair of round black sunglasses. This casual look works great for 60 degree weather on a spring day.

As summer is all about embracing the rainbow, spring is about easing your way into colors with softer shades. For something that makes a pretty serious statement, pastels can be easy to wear. Hopefully these couple of tips guide you in making the right choices when it comes to wearing colors for the spring.
