This summer every girl’s childhood dreams are coming true with runways and magazine spreads being sprinkled in pastel hues of mint green, sweet pink, lilac purple, coral and baby blue. All of us girls will remember combing the rainbow colored hair of their “my little pony” toys and wishing one day that these ponies would come to life. Since then, we realized that in order for this to come true we either had to wish for Santa Clause to bring us this magical rainbow colored pony or settle for a real one… Since neither one of these have been realistic enough, the fashion world has decided to bless us with a pastel colored summer!
Below are a few of our favorite picks from the SS’12 runways:
The key with this trend is to stick to clean lines and feminine shapes. The best way to accentuate these pastel tones is to mix up the colors. If you’re not ready to go for a full on look, you can opt to dress up your outfit with a cute pair of pastel block heels. The best thing about this trend is that almost any pastel tone can be paired with any color.
This trend is slightly daring yet very easy to pull off and it can be translated into any type of occasion, be it workwear, a lazy Sunday afternoon, a tea party or eveningwear. It can be dressed down or up depending on your mood.
It is no wonder this trend has gotten the world excited and has colored all our closets pale. This wave of pastel is definitely a trend that will stay for all my summers under the sun.
