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

Leave your suggestions below on how you wear the pastel trend!

Dip dyed hair emerged in 2010, and is still going and becoming more popular than ever, with every celebrity getting on the trend. This trend has been seen with more natural hair colors, and every color from pink, purple, blue, green, and neon colors.

I have been obsessed with the dip dyed trend, however I’m not brave enough to even try this, since I just got lighter highlights in my hair since middle school, so maybe this might be the next step, with more natural tone, such as a lighter color at the bottom since my natural hair color is dark brown!

Let me know what you think of this trend, or if you have tried this yet!

The neon trend is in full blast, it started with bags now it’s in full motion with denim, every accessory you can think of, and even shoes! Neon is a trend, so these bright of colors will come and go, so with trends I like to my items to be budget friendly since you will only wear them while they are in style, just about everything shown here was found on forever 21.com and all at reasonably prices of under $20.

With neon colors, you can always wear them together and do a colorblocking, or to keep it calm you can wear one neon item for a pop of color, and then wear everything else neutral! A hot pink shirt, would pair great with a nice dark denim, or white, and then pair some cute fun neon accessories!

I wish I was on this trend, but I just got into color, inside of just black and greys, (because of work), I think I am going to start of simple and buy some cute fun accessories! Have you bought anything that is neon yet? How you would you pair neon’s into your wardrobe?
