Trend Spotlight: Pastels

     We totally get you if you associate dreamy pastel shades with this year’s Springtime. Lately, we’ve been seeing the cutest colors left and right - from pistachio greens and buttery yellow popcorns, all the way to cool lavenders. The runways and the streets were splashed with these sorbet-inspired shades and we’re living for it! From jackets, pants, accessories, shoes, and even hair - pastel has definitely taken over the scene (and our hearts). And who could forget their self care essentials especially now when most of us have the time to pamper ourselves at home - with skincare packaging and nail art making them look so cute you want to eat it! The best part of pastels is you can definitely wear these shades well into the summer months for as long as you want to look cute!

Pastels we’re obsessing over

1. Fresh Greens

Green has been the favorite of many designers lately. Slime green took over last season, while the recent months brought a more relaxed and mellow version. Pistachio, mint, and seafoam green have been featured by designers such as Chrsitian Siriano, and has made its way everywhere from sweaters, to shoes, and even reusable water bottles! Shop our take on pastel green here with our Mint collection!

2. All About Pink

Millennial pink has been popular these past few years with brands like Glossier and celebs such as Kendall Jenner all hailing the shade as their go-to. Soon, fashionistas of every age started filling their closets with this dainty and fresh color. It doesn’t matter if you’re a girly-girl or not, nor does it matter what generation you’re from! Anyone can wear this flattering shade as it goes well with almost any color and suits every skin tone. Need some cute pastel pink swimsuits? Shop our Candy Pink and Pink Lemonade!

3. Buttery Popcorn

Don’t mind the naysayers - yellow is actually super flattering as long as you get the right shade! Thankfully, the buttery pastel yellow easily goes well regardless of skin tone, as compared to the more eye catching and bright takes of the color. There’s no need to go overboard with it though! Adding a pop of yellow through a cool sweater paired with light blue jeans or even just cute butter nails can really make an outfit more interesting. Look like a snack with these Popcorn swimmers!

4. Soothing Lilac

This season, designers showed us how to mix up lilac hues. Babe Cara Delevingne showed us how to rock this beautiful color! This lavender shade works well on its own, or with a cool print like houndstooth for that added punch if you’re going for a streetwear look. That’s the amazing thing about Lilac - it’s just so versatile that it can take you from cool to cute and back! If you’re looking for some Lilac suits, shop the perfect ones here!

Get cute at home with pastels!

1. Paint your nails

If you’re anything like us, your nails are dying for a fresh coat of polish. Switch things up and reach for a bottle of pastel-hued polish instead and make them look oh so yummy! O.P.I. has a ton of amazing pastel shades available - and we know choosing the perfect color is like browsing through Netflix - it’ll take us a whole day to pick! Oh - and here’s a gram idea! - show your matching nails with your phone case and your swimsuit for the perfect shot!

2. Make a rainbow cake

We’ve all seen this cake on Pinterest and Instagram, but how many of you have actually had this to know if it tastes as good as it looks? If you’re curious, bust out the mixer and bake the cake - just because! We like this recipe the best.

3. Play with your makeup

Don’t hold back with your adventurous self! Now is the perfect time to experiment with your new eyeshadow looks and take tons of selfies before everyone else sees it! When you step out of this quarantine, you’ll have everything on fleek!
