Pastels are big this spring. Especially very soft colors like rose and mint and clothing labels already carry pastel colored spring items. I picked out a few pieces that I find especially nice. Read more if you want to know where to find them!
1. The ballet dress:
Innocent, girly, feminine and not just for girls! They are perfect for any woman that wants to bring out her soft, romantic side. Tip: They are now also worn with fitted tee's! Or if you prefer, wear a cream colored cardigan instead. From H&M.
2. The boyfriend cardigan
Boyfriend cardigans are a new, versatile item and a good alternative to a knit cardigan or jacket. They can be worn with casual and formal items. Off white and cream is perfect with spring pastels. From H&M.
Sweatshirts have never been this pretty. The color of this sweatshirt takes it from casual to preppy. Find the sweatshirt and pleated skirt at H&M.
4. A delicate blouse
Pastels and a silky texture? That sounds like a perfect combination to me! Love how this piece is slightly two toned! From H&M
5. Fitted Scoopneck Coats
Not a fan of "oversized" and "boyfriend" shapes? No problem! Fitted coats will stick around 2014. This one in particular has a slight vintage look to it and lovely seam detail! From H&M
6. A printed scarf
A very unusual combination! From H&M
9. Bell shaped skirts
Not as wide an swingy as a circle skirt, but certainly not fitted. This skirt shape is often adorned with large pleats and textured fabrics. Combine it with a grey boyfriend blazer and a clean T-Shirt! All H&M.
Finally a comfortable and pretty alternative to ballet flats! H&M.
11. Kimono Jackets
Very, subtle and understated Kimono Jacket. I love how this is monotone too! From H&M.
12. Bags and watches
Mint, nude, rose, pink! Bags are also sold in pastel colors this year. These genuine leather totes are available at GAP. The watch you see here is a vintage FOSSIL watch from 1992, I would love to see it back!
But, FOSSIL thought of us this spring and brought out new colors and finishes for the popular Georgia watch collection. Available also in a smaller version called the Georgia Mini (right)
I hope you enjoyed this preview! Let me know which items you like best!
