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!
