Tips to Wearing Pastels

Pastels shouldn't be strictly for babies and grandmas or Easter Sunday and weddings. Read a few of my tips to wearing pastels this season as I wander through one of San Francisco's most famous landmarks, the Palace of Fine Arts.

Pastels are always a difficult trend for most of us. How do you wear pastels without looking like a Ladurée macaron? What do you pair with a pastel piece without looking like you just ripped the wallpaper off of the hallway at a bed-and-breakfast?

First, who cares about following trends and following the crowd? Yes, you may get looks, but most likely looks from people who wish they could pull off a stellar outfit as good as you!

Second, avoid cardigans that make people wonder where the rest of the Golden Girls went. Instead, shop simple, sleek pieces that can become a versatile piece of your wardrobe. The lilac suede moto jacket from Old Navy that I'm wearing is a great example of a modern pastel piece. It's badass enough to wear on a night out or over a feminine shift dress you wear to the office.

Opting for a lighter denim can help pull a pastel ensemble together.

A lighter denim in light blue or white can create a cool look that takes your Spring wardrobe to a fun new place. Pick up a denim jacket or a pair of boyfriend jeans to take your look from Sunday Best to everyday casual!

A pop of color is a must!

Again, you don't have to wear anything you don't want to, but personally, I think a pop of color can complete an outfit, pastel or not.

A pop of color can be anything from a hot pink lipstick to an electric blue handbag. I chose these suede like flats from Old Navy in one of the year's most popular colors, "Mellow Yellow!"

Did these style tips help? Be sure to tag me in that selfie or send me a quick note! I would love to hear from you all!
