Do: Add Variety
“Pop a bright color with a pastel. If you have different tones of yellows and whites, make it pop with a bright necklace or handbag. You can always pop color with your accessories, your shoes, your handbags, your jewelry, even a hat or something fun.”—Anette Tuxen, Fashion House
Don’t: Keep It All Light
“If you want to do pastel blue or sage green take it back to a navy blazer or dark denim for a contrast.”—Chris Gardner, Mainstream Boutique
Do: Mix and Match
“Mix brighter colors with the pastels. You don’t have to do all pastels.”—A.T.
Don’t: Be Too Formal
“With Easter and spring in general, people like a softer palette for their wardrobe, especially for special occasions. But we actually have jeans in pastel colors—pale yellow, pale pink, a minty green—and the same thing in jackets. Denim in pastel colors is really trending right now.”—A.T.
