Redefining Pastels #1
All-round lightness: welcome the new season in a fresh and feminine palette of pastels in sherbet shades and cotton candy colors.
Think mint, blush pink, icy blue and vanilla for garments of fluid and clean lines, taking center stage this spring. Favor a gradual approach: one or two confetti hues are enough, teamed with white, or even black for bon ton elegance with retro throwbacks. Get dolled up, but don’t over-indulge: sweetness of color is best counter-balanced by lightness of material in airy yet geometric cuts.
Be decisive: pick one pastel to make your look. Just combine its various nuances for a dynamic ensemble that is never dull.
Your next step is to add choice accessories in complementary tones that enhance your shade by contrast. A bag, bijou or foulard will suffice.
If you’re feeling a little more experimental, feel free to mix-and-match your pastels for up-to-the-minute style. Right on the money for Spring 2012: the sorbet version of the color-blocking trend to cleanse your palette sweetie.
