Sweet Scene - Pastels for Spring 2013

Although there’s probably at least a few months of winter left, we bet you’re all pining for something springy to wearIf you’ve been paying attention to fashion trends, you’ve probably noticed the spectrum of ice cream colored shades popping up everywhere for men and women.  Here are few tips on how to wear this trend without looking too sweet.

-Play with fabrics and textures.  Mix flowy pieces with more structured fabrics like leather, denim and menswear-ish tweed.  Combining fabrics and textures will give your look dimension and make it less saccharine.

-Ground your look.  To keep this trend from looking too Tinker Bell, pair prim pastels with cool neutrals and metallics. You can also layer very soft shades with more saturated tones to give your outfit more depth.

-Give it some edge.  Take good-girl colors and combine them with bad-girl accents like studs, zippers, heavy lace and buckles.

-Accessorize.  We know pastels aren’t for everyone, but a little sugar never hurts, and there are small ways you can make this trend work for you.  Try adding a few soft colored accessories to your wardrobe or experimenting with pastel make up and nail polish.
