Pretty In Pastels

Pretty In Pastels

Louis Vuitton

Now that the weather is warming up and the highly anticipated spring season is just around the corner, it’s time for us to update our wardrobe. So that means, it’s time for us to get out of that winter rut and bring out the latest spring trends. Lucky for us, New York Fashion Week just came to a close, leaving us with an abundance of new trends to try for this upcoming season.

One trend that is a big hit on the runway this spring is soft hues and pretty pastels. After countless seasons of overwhelming neon and dreary dark shades, designers are “cleansing our color palate” and bringing us a fresh new look for spring. This trend is not only seen in the newest fashions that graced the catwalk, but also, in the latest beauty trends.

These pretty pastels can be worn in a multitude of different ways, ranging from edgy to ultra feminine. While Louis Vuitton showcased this trend through feminine lace dresses and 50’s inspired frocks, Givenchy took it to a whole new level by pairing cotton-candy colors and sorbet shades with menswear inspired pieces.

Obviously, being college students, we can’t all afford these high-end couture pieces, but that doesn’t mean we can’t wear this fresh new trend. Try a pair of pastel colored skinnies, a silk flowy top or a feminine blazer in a pale pink or barely-there mint green.  If you want a more subtle way to participate in this major spring trend, try wearing Chanel’s soft sherbet colored nail lacquer in “June” or light, spring green polish in “navigate her” from Essie’s latest collection.
