For many of us, Easter is a joyous time catching up with family and friends. Not quite as formal as Christmas, but still a time for dressing up. Pastels are often associated with Easter; shades that some of us will find easier to wear than others. Read on to find out how to get the very best out of pastels.
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, there’s always a pastel around at this time of year. The key is working out how to wear it to flatter your own coloring.
Lights: this is your territory and you look amazing in pastel pinks, greens, yellows and blues. Team with one of your lighter neutrals such as stone.
Deeps: you will no doubt find that pastels worn on their own, wash you out. Add a little oomph to your look with the addition of a deeper shade such as charcoal or navy.
Warms: stay away from the cooler pastel blues and pinks. Instead try pastel yellow and team with aqua for an interesting combination.
Cools: cooler pastels work on you. The key is to add contrast to balance out your look. Try pastel pink with fuchsia or teal.
Clears: you too need to add contrast to pastels. Tap into your jewel tones such as sapphire and emerald green.
Softs: mint is a fabulous pastel and teamed with pewter for a tone-on-tone look is perfect.
