Trend Watch: Pastels

The whole blogging world is over-flowing with excitement for pastels for this spring/summer. I am guessing this would be the IT trend this time just like the color-blocking was last year. I have done my fair share of browsing on the internet and I find mints and pinks the most interesting when it comes to pastels. Pastel yellows are also pretty but mint and pink does it for me, I guess. This post is dedicated to pastels and how to wear them and some pictures for inspiration.

Well, there are no hard and fast rules to wear anything but some tips never harm anyone now, does it?

Tip 1# Don't go overboard with pastels!
While it's alright for an ice-cream sundae to have mint, pink, yellow, cream and all other pastels in it, it is NOT ok for you to look like an absolute ice-cream candy! And yes, it looks gorgeous when a model at Louis Vuitton runway dons it but trust me, you don't wanna look like an ice-cream parlour employee! (This tip especially goes to my Indian readers)

Tip 2# While wearing pastels, avoid ruffles!
Remember, pastels are in trend, not your prom dress! You might risk looking like a 12 year old if you combines these two elements in your outfit. Wear clean lines and stay away from being too sweet.

Tip 3# Mix pastels with neutrals, greys or whites...
Neutrals and whites can really help balance an outfit and save it from looking too girly. Plus, it's the most easiest way to wear this trend!

Tip 4# Mix, Match & Have fun!!
The last tip is for my daring and experimental girls out there...Forget all the above mentioned tips and go have fun with your pastels! Pair it with animal prints, leather, neons, whatever YOU like and get on your wild side!

Hey just a suggestion.

Write the particular website the photos are from and not since that is a search engine.
