Better with Blue (Chambray or Denim):
With any pastel piece, striking a color balance with a neutral piece is key. For these warm spring days, opt for lightweight chambray items—shirt, skirt, or blazer—to take your pastel look from cute to cool.
Mix in Metals:
A little shine takes any pastel outfit from good to glam. Choose a piece of bold gold jewelry—chunky bangle bracelet, studded earrings, statement necklace, or delicate rings galore—to take your pastel look to the next level.
Play with Pastels in Bits & Pieces:
For any daunting fashion trend, I build my confidence by “accessorizing it out.” Scarves, handbags, skinny belts, shoes, sunglasses, or nail polish—sometimes the most tasteful nods to the current season’s hottest trends are through this subtle styling.
Say Yes to Texture:
Soft pastel shades + no detail = no fun. Finding pastel pieces with texture—lace tops, pleats, embroidery, eyelet, swiss dots, and more—will make your outfit an instant conversation starter.
When in Doubt—Statement Jacket:
In addition to “accessorizing it out,” Statement Jackets are another super easy way to participate in the current season’s hottest trends. Pastel hued jackets in modern silhouettes— moto, utility, lean blazer, collarless—are a surefire way to take our mom style level to the top!
