Pastels are trending for the spring and summer as seen on the runway this season. A monochromatic look in one pastel shade or mixing various pastel hues were both used on the runway. Pastels are often associated with the springtime and Easter; however, it will be trending through the summer and can be incorporated into edgier and more retro inspired outfits. Regardless of your personal style, finding pastels for your wardrobe should be an easy feat.

This outfit incorporates different shades of a pastel lavender, as well as ultra violet, which is the Pantone color of the year for 2018. This is a feminine and romantic style that incorporates the season’s latest trends, including the circle bag, florals, statement earrings, off-the-shoulder top, and pastels.  The classic high-waisted trousers add a more traditional and sophisticated look to the outfit. The trendy blouse can be swapped for a more classic fit if you desire a timeless approach or rather not invest in new styles. However, off-the-shoulder items are not going anywhere in the next few months.
