The Trend: Pastels

Pretty pastel hues coated the Spring/Summer 2012 runway shows this season, and I can’t get enough! The candy-colored palette works so well in any wardrobe—think mint green, sky blue, lush lavender, and blush pink.

How to Style:

To style the pastel look, layer the soft hues together for a color-blocked look a la Phillip Lim. Try a peach tank with a pink sweater and mint pumps. Have fun by adding a burst of neon with chalk-blue trousers and a neon green clutch. Floral jeans also look beautiful with a light lavender T-shirt. For a tougher look, pair a pastel with an otherwise all-black ensemble. You can also limit the pastel to your nails!

Where to Find It:

Practically anywhere! Chloé, Paul and Joe, Rag & Bone, Ralph Lauren, and Elizabeth and James are all offering peach, mint, pink and light blue tones for summer.
