STYLE GURU STYLE: Pretty in Pastel

In my opinion, May is one of the best months of the year! The weather is warm, the semester has concluded, and college students are enjoying the time off before summer internships and jobs begin. Spring is alive with vibrant colors, and it is the perfect time to bring some of that color into our wardrobes. When I think of spring, I immediately think of pastel. Perhaps it is because I love pastel colors, lavender in particular, and spring provides me with a reason to wear an array of pastels day after day.

In this look, I chose to wear a lavender top, white pants, and nude wedges. The pastel colors and lightweight materials create the perfect springtime ensemble. When the temperatures are not quite warm enough to wear a dress, white pants are a classy alternative. I keep the accessories minimal by layering two gold necklaces, both of which are different lengths and nicely complement each other. They are thin and subtle but add just the right amount of detail.

Another great aspect of this outfit is that it is versatile and can easily be tailored to whatever your day has in store. Going out to brunch with friends? Wedges, as I chose in this look, effortlessly dress up your ensemble in a simple way. Or if you prefer shoes that are more suitable for walking longer distances, opt for a pair of flat sandals. This look can easily be taken from day to night with the addition of a denim jacket. I decide to carry this light wash jacket with me so that I am prepared for the evening when the temperature gets chilly. It also adds a nice contrast to the ensemble because it breaks up the lightweight pieces with a darker, heavier texture.

If you are in need of spring fashion inspiration, just take a look around. Outside is abundant with colors, so why not translate a portion of this colorful season into your fashion sense? There isn’t a better time to play around with our style than in May when our schedules are a little less hectic. For now, let’s enjoy the fact that the semester is over and take the upcoming three months as a time to relax, try new things, and set goals for the next semester.
