how to wear PASTELS

Pastels are in and everyone can wear them. Mint green, watermelon, lemon..... There are a few rules that you need to follow to get the look right and without looking like you just stepped out of a candy bar. 
Wear with a neutral colour like beige, black or white. As the sorbet shades are hitting the stores you can still wear the trend in the last few weeks of winter by adding accessories like scarves, clutch, a blazer, or a dress paired back with a neutral coloured blazer or trench. I just love the sorbet pastel coloured jeans. Which colour will you wear?

Wear one pastel with a darker color or a neutral.
Try using a pastel colored nail polish.
Carry a purse in a pastel
Wear a statement necklace or bracelet with pastels to make the outfit current.
Wear pastels that look good with your skin tone close to your face.
If you like a pastel that does not work with your skin tone, wear it as the bottom of your outfit.
A scarf is always a good way to add a touch of pastel to your outfit.

How not to wear pastels
Do not wear pastels from head to toe.
Do not match your make-up to the pastel you are wearing. 
Never match your shoes and purse.
