Trend Watch: Pastels

Spring is here and one of the biggest trends this season is pastels which made a huge impact on the runways. From Jason Wu, Ralph Lauren, Tibi and Alexander Wang, pastels was a hit in NY for spring 2012. This trend also made it's way to Milan and Paris. Celebrities like Nicole Richie, Ginnifer Goodwin, Elizabeth Banks, Reese Witherspoon, Olivia Wilde and more have dabbled in this trend way before spring. With colored denim being so popular in the fall, this is a trend that will carry on season to season. Salmon, lavendar, yellow, pink and mint are some of the colors that were seen everywhere. I love color and I have been wearing it a lot in the fall as well so I am glad that pastels has become a seasonless trend. Whether you are doing it in bold strips or prints and solids, pastels can add a subtle and sweet look to your wardrobe without making you blind. However I would be carful when picking a pastel color because you don't want a color that will wash you out. Also, I wouldn't suggest wearing it head to toe becuase it can come off as over done. Nonetheless, this is a trend everyone can definitely pull off especially all of my girly girl fashionista's. If you are a little rough around the edges, don't sweat because you can dip in this trend as well. How long will it stick around?, only time will tell. What are your thoughts about this trend?
