Trend Spotting: Pastel Pop

We adore pastels! No, they're not only meant for those tasty macaroon cookies or Easter eggs; they're perfect for any outfit, any season. As one of the biggest trends of the upcoming spring and summer, pastel colors add a more soft-spoken touch of femininity and can attract all kinds of attention--of course, in the good, "I love your outfit!" kind of way. And in lieu of our love for pale hues, we've gathered some of our pastel fashion faves.
This is a perfectly simple look for running around town. A breezy fuchsia pink blouse tucked inside a seafoam linen midi skirt is a combo that is relaxed and fashion savvy. This spring and summer, it's all about clothes that are comfy and lightweight, and this outfit is definitely one that will keep up with the trends. Our favorite item that brings it all together are the rose gold ballet flats! They are adorable, and compliment the entire look perfectly.
Pairing pastels with black is a unique way to give a girly look an edgy touch. We love this mint ladylike blazer over the basic lavender tee! While the distressed denim cutoffs make this outfit instantly tough, we'd opt for a leather pleated mini skirt to make more of a feminine statement. The accessories are also what make this outfit awesome: a small, studded wrist clutch, and ankle cuff heels. Without a doubt, this outfit has all kinds of cool appeal. 
When it comes to wearing an upscale look, keeping it simple is almost always the best way to go. This outfit has plenty of sophistication, and is an awesome way to be dressy yet casual. The embellished champagne jacket is hands down the most eye-catching piece to this look. Worn over a silky pale pink blouse, the jacket manages to stand out to give this simple look more of a decadent feel. We also love the final additions of lavender wide leg denim and neutral peep toe pumps. This outfit is perfect for both day and night.

Pastel colors are super chic, and can be worn in so many ways! How will you add a pastel pop to your own style?
