Pretty in Pastels

Spring is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to start shedding heavy layers…and the heavy winter color palette. Adding soft, muted hues and playful pastels to your look is the perfect place to start. Here are some suggestions from your friends at Fashion Fabrics Club.

Lightweight Trench

The slouchy, lightweight trench has become a transition season essential, and has a way of transforming easy looks into enviable ensembles. Take this pale pink polyester number as example, the look underneath is super basic, but once the trench is added it’s suddenly double take-worthy.

Silk Joggers

Sweatshirt and fleece joggers are a live-in in the wintertime, but once the temps start to warm a lighter option is necessary. In pink silk, the athletic-inspired silhouette not only becomes decidedly feminine but also richly upscale, and offers just the right weight for rising temps.

Tulle Skirt

Swap the jeans for a flirty pale blue tulle skirt and watch your favorite sweater become instantly spring-ready. This look is perfect for more formal outings, but a simple shoe change to simple flats and the addition of an edgy moto jacket would make it perfect for casual wear.

Chiffon Skirt

If you’re looking for something a little more subdued than the tulle skirt, opt for a classic midi pleated skirt. In a soft shade like pale blue chiffon, it will pair well with your other staples while adding a playful springy twist.

Slinky Top

Craving coverage is totally understandable considering we’re still technically in the throes of winter. To keep your jacket-and-jeans look on the lighter, springier side, pair it with a slinky pale purple top and fun, colorful accessories.
