Pastels: the new neutral

By  | 

As with every year around this time, bright colors are the ‘go-to’ thing. This year, instead of the bright berry colors and yellows, pastels are the new neutrals. When you’re thinking pastels, think petal pinks, mint green, soft salmon, baby blues, and off whites. These are all colors that you want to consider to add into your wardrobe. A good way to feed them in are through purchasing flowy blouses in pale pink, and mint to wear with light blue denim and white jeans. The soft salmon is an amazing color when paired with navy blue and khaki bottoms. Soft whites and creams are the perfect colors to be used to fuse all the pastels together. Think of throwing an off white cardigan over a pastel tank paired with jeans. Another option would be doing a white, long swing jacket or trench made of light fabric over a pastel blouse. Pair these two with tight fitting skinny jeans and a cognac wedge or pointed pump. A preppy pair of flat front shorts would look amazing with this look as well.

Ever since I was a young boy, I had a love for clothing. I remember walking through various stores just feeling the fabrics and turning the garments inside out just to look at the construction of each piece. I knew that the fashion industry was a creative realm that I had to be part of. With that in mind I made my way through college and graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Product Development with an initial emphasis in Fashion Design. I've completed the trek from the Midwest all the way to the Golden State of California to take my place in the fashion world and take a stand for self expression and creativity. What excites me the most about fashion is the opportunity to completely morph yourself into different styles daily! The chance to try new things and set yourself apart from your neighbor. Its a glamorous and fascinating world. Through my written word, I hope to express my passion and the love I have deep down for fashion world. I also want be that helping hand for all of those that know they have it in them to be trendy and chic but may not know just exactly what to put together, from the items within their closet to execute successful daily looks. I hope that my words are helpful, encouraging and most importantly, helps to build confidence within each reader!
