Spring is all about soft, fresh colors. We saw sorbet-inspired hues on several spring runways, including Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs. With that in mind, this week on Pretty Little Things (where we source the cutest, stylish finds online) we wanted to share some of the pretty pastel clothes and accessories we’re currently coveting. Trust us, you’ll love them!
Just like I can’t ever have enough shoes (what woman can?), I can never have enough bags. While winter was all about deep, rich hues, this spring I’ll be going much lighter. I love this pastel color block bucket bag featuring pops of soft pink, blue and yellow (asos.com, $50). This will make a great weekend bag paired with jeans for casual brunch dates or errands.
Long T-shirts are a versatile item to have in your wardrobe. They make great beach cover-ups, they can work with leggings and look chic both belted or simply loosely tucked into your favorite pair of jeans. Add an on-trend pastel hue and you have yourself a great find. This simple but stylish pastel tee is casual – with an eye-catching print perfect for spring (zara.com, $36).
Turn heads this spring in an adorable Diane von Furstenberg dress in a lovely shade of pale orangey-peach (dvf.com, $298). The sunny and stylish shade (reminiscent of orange sherbet) is ideal for warmer weather. I love the simple yet flattering silhouette and plan to pair this simple stunning pastel dress with wedge heels and an all-purpose tote.
From nails to outerwear, yellow is a hue poised for big things this spring. That’s what drew my attention to this sporty watch in a delicious shade of the aforementioned color – albeit with a twist of lime (Nordstrom.com, $75). Ideal for warmer months, this fun pastel accessory works well with anything from simple sundresses to tailored trousers.
All about earrings
There’s something about pastel blue that I find so cheerful. Give me anything in that hue – from dresses to heels to cardigans and I’m happy. Case in point: these darling drop earrings in a soft shade of robin’s egg blue (1928.com, $22). An easy way to introduce pastels to your wardrobe, this simple accessory goes a long way towards heightening a spring outfit.
