Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Trend: Pastels
One of the biggest trends this Spring and Summer are pastels. (Above: Chloe; Christopher Kane; Erdem; Oscar de la Renta.) I absolutely adore pastels so I am super thrilled that they are on-trend this season. While I already have a ton of pastels in my closet, I literally want to purchase every single item below. If you are a huge fan of pastels like me, below are some options to consider: "Katrine" peplum top for $88 on www.anthropologie.com; Sam & Lavi "Trina" floral lace dress for $198 on www.bloomingdales.com; AG "Stevie" ankle jean for $158 on www.anthropologie.com; Sabine vegan leather tank for $79 on www.piperlime.com; 1969 legging skimmer jean for $69.95 on www.gap.com; "Softer Side" blazer for $66 on www.lulus.com; M Missoni eyelet dress for $795 on www.shopbop.com; "Turning in Tulle" skirt for $47.99 on www.modcloth.com; "Zip Down Memory Lane" jacket for $54.99 on www.modcloth.com; "Dorothy" coat for $698 on www.katespade.com; Gibson collarless linen blazer for $88 on www.nordstrom.com; Collection necklace shell top for $138 on www.jcrew.com.
Probably the hottest pastel trend this Spring and Summer is mint-colored clothing. (Below: Catherine Malandrino; Kate Spade; Mulberry; Matthew Williamson.)
