Wearing the brightest colors on the spectrum is so 2011. Update your look in 2012 by wearing the hottest trend: pastels. One thing to keep in mind when searching for a piece (or 5) to step out in this spring is that most pastels pop against medium and dark skin tones. However, the fairer-skinned fashionistas should be careful not to wear colors that are too close to their skin tones (such as really pale pinks, peaches, and light yellows) which can make you look washed out. From the frocks of stars like Octavia Spencer, Tilda Swinton, and Jessica Alba to the designs of 3.1 Philip Lim, Carolina Herrea, Louis Vuitton, and Yves Saint Laurent (all pictured below)– pale pinks, blues, and lavenders are ruling the red carpet this awards season and were splashed all over runways.
Don’t be afraid to try color blocking or mix & match prints (you can find tips on that here) when wearing pastels. Spring is around the corner so go ahead and add a little celebrity style to your wardrobe and bring the catwalk to your sidewalk with the pieces below.
