How to Wear Pastels (and Not Look Like an Easter Egg)

We all love the delicate flowers and budding leaves that come with the end of winter. Just like florals, pastels have become synonymous with the spring season, but not always for the most fashionable reasons. Too often, these lighter colors are reserved for juvenile clothing, but they don’t have to be. So, what’s a girl to do with colors like lavender, mint, pale blue and ballet pink? First, don’t get overwhelmed. All pastels are in the same shade group, so they are easy to mix and match. Next, remember that your accessories can (and should) stand out. Consider black, metallics and even deep red in your styling choices. Don’t believe us? Let these examples show you how to wear pastels like a street style pro.
