Q. I see that pale pastels are a big trend for spring. To be honest, it has been years since I wore anything pastel. What colors can I wear them with?
A. True, it has been a long time since pastel hues were truly in style, but judging by the spring runways, it’s a trend you won’t be able to escape this season. Here are some tips for incorporating pastels into your look:
1. Pair pastels with pastels: Colorblocking monochromatic pastels was one of the most prevalent looks on the runways. However, this can be tough to pull off successfully. To avoid looking like a walking Easter egg, try pairing just two pastels together at a time.
2. Pair pastels with soft neutrals:White, khaki, grey, camel, and denim look beautiful worn with pastels.
3. Incorporate black accessories: If pastels are too girly for you, opt for black accessories to toughen them up.
4. Pair pastels with metallics: Silver and gold look gorgeous next to soft pastels.
