Spring Trend 2012-Pretty Pastels

The Spring/Summer 2012 Collections were stocked with a bevy of beautiful pastels including soft pink, mint green, icy blue, yummy yellow, perfect peach and very violet. Designers opted to show looks in either monochromatic (all one color) pastel hues or paired corresponding separates in a mix of subtle shades. This color palette once reserved for Easter attire has taken on a new modern edge. Today’s pastels are fresh and flirty and can be worn long into  the summer season.  This is a trend that is easy on the eyes and available in every clothing option (think coats, jackets, sweaters, blouses, pants, jeans, capri’s, handbags, jewelry, shoes, scarves, sandals and hats). Pastels are available at every price point from Barney’s to Target giving you numerous options for mixing and matching a perfectly pulled together look.  

Pretty Pastel Pointer: (Try pairing a light pick handbag with a black outfit very Chanel…or why not mix a number of softer shades together-see pictures at top for inspiration).
