Step Into the Light this Spring with these Lovely Pale Hues

January 18, 2012 § 4 Comments

Tis the season for PASTELS!  Well, almost anyway…

Not only do these lovely pale shades remind us of our beautiful, and may we say very chic, grandmothers, Yaya and Nannan, but pastels also have relevance today, as they appeared time and time again in so many of the Spring 2012 RTW collections.

Pastels are a welcome departure from months of bright neon and blaring prints and are actually quite flattering on all skin tones.  Here we’ll show you how to make them modern by pairing these pale tones with neutrals.  It’s easy and fun!  You’ll discover a whole new way of looking at the blacks, grays, tans, and cremes in your wardrobe.  Pastels are also really easy to pair with other pastels, making color-blocked looks an absolute breeze!

Enjoy!

    Love love love!!! Ali, will y’all start labeling where your clothes are from so we can try to track down pieces that we love??

      Thank you, Em!
      Yes, absolutely. We had been doing that in the beginning, and then stopped, but you are absolutely right–it’s time to start up again!
      As for this post, all of the articles of clothing are from American Apparel with the exception of:
      -the blazer in the first look, which is vintage.
      -the trench in the third look, which is Club Monaco.
      -the beaded top in the fourth look, which is H&M.
      -the creme blazer in the fifth and ninth looks, which is also H&M.
      -and the jacket in the seventh look which is Forever 21.
