Pastels
Pretty pastels have been all over the catwalk and are such a huge trend for this summer. As fancy and girly as these shades are, they can be a little tricky to get the look just right. Whether it’s candy pink or mint green, there are so many options popping up, that it would be hard not to get this look down!

Go Monochromatic

Go with one solid pastel color rather than breaking it up.  If you are petite, pastel trends worn in a column of color will help you  look taller, creating a beautiful long line giving your look the strength it needs. Accent your monochromatic look with stronger accessories that are not in the same color family.  It will help balance out the soft and create interest.

Wear a Top

Pair a pastel floral top with jeans, floral patterns are very much on trend this season and if you have worn them before, you must be careful.  Pastel trends coupled with a floral pattern can look old lady like very easily.

Support with Accessories

The most important concept to remember when wearing pastel trends is in how you use your accessories. Sometimes adding a simple pastel necklace or earrings looks better than going overboard with everything pastel.

Be bold and be creative with your accessories! Consider:

  • Pastel Nail Polish
  • Bold gold jewelry to give power to your look
  • Try larger pieces than you normally wear
  • Cuffs not just gold, but leather too!
  • Structured handbags
