It’s been a pretty amazing summer so far. Even though it’s not my favorite season of apparel, it’s a great time to wear and combine bright, bold colors. For all of the minimalists out there – I get it – you can never go wrong with classic black and white, gray, or even a subtle blush. Whether you have a minimalist style or not, summer is a great time to play around with adding color to your outfits. Wether it’s a bright pink earring with an all black look, or a combination of reds, yellows and teals, you won’t need to worry about being out of your comfort zone because there’s already color everywhere.
I was inspired by this post from an outfit I wore a few weeks back during pride weekend. I was so inspired by all the color and love that I combined some items/colors in my closet that I never would have thought to put together otherwise. I styled a pair of white shorts with a red top, yellow tassel earrings and teal slides.
Easter is a week away and the pastels are already flooding the department stores and social feeds. Pastels aren’t colors I wear frequently because they’re not exactly in my color wheel. If you’re not completely sold on pastels like me, here are a few tips to incorporate them into your Easter outfit and your wardrobe:
°If you gravitate towards a certain color [in my case, it’s blue] try and find a piece of clothing in the pastel version of that color.
°If pastels aren’t colors you wear often, purchase a piece that can be versatile and layered. I’ve had this blazer for as long as I can remember because it’s great to wear with darker colors already in my closet. When Easter and spring comes around, I pair it with another pastel to be festive. The more versatile the piece, the less likely the piece is going to sit idle in your closet.
°My last tip is, be true to yourself. If you wouldn’t be caught dead in a pastel color opt for florals or the trending gingham print this Easter. Whatever makes you feel confident at the end of the day is the most important; however, try not to shy away from stepping out of your comfort zone because you never know what you may end up loving.
I styled a pastel sweater and blazer with my favorite white shorts, light gray bag and minimal nude sandals. I hope you all have a great Easter!
