Other than bold floral and prints, color pop and PJs look, pastel trend is making waves for spring. You don´t have to wear darks, this season´s statement is refreshing to the eyes, not to mention cool.
Isabel of Metallic Paws shows you how to work pastels for spring.
1. What are you wearing?
-lightweight, salmon pink blazer from Bardot.
-sleeveless nude pink top with chiffon front from Portmans
-black shorts with a scalloped hem from english.gmarket.co.kr
-pink/white striped chain bag from Colette Accessories
-strappy light beige heels from wholesale7.net
2. Where did you wear?
I wore this on a date to the city.
3. What styling tricks did you apply to make it work?
I wanted my outfit to incorporate nudes and salmon pinks, and I prevented it from looking washed-out with the black shorts. However, despite the dark colour, the scalloped hem matches the femininity of the shirred chiffon and silk pieces up top. I further brought the outfit back down to romantic and light, with the nude strappy heels.
4. Describe your style.
I actually love to challenge myself to delve into a variety of fashion styles. Sometimes I wear a lot of girly, feminine pieces, sometimes edgy with a lot of black and leather, and sometimes unique and flashy with bold statement pieces such as galaxy printed leggings or a sequinned jacket.
5. Who´s your style icon and why?
I have many style icons, but for this look I was particularly inspired by Taylor Swift’s romantic and feminine style.
6. What trends are you incorporating to your wardrobe right now?
Pastels are making a big comeback now, along with sea colours such as mint green and turquoise. During this season I’ll colour-block two shades such as a mint blouse with a pastel pink skirt, and top it off with bright shoes or bright accessories. When it gets colder towards the middle of the year I might keep the brights to a minimum, such as with one statement pair of light yellow skinny jeans or a lavender chunky knit, for example.
Thank you so much, Isabel. You look gorgeous and cute!
