Yes, You Can Wear Pastels!

I love Charles Barkley. Why? He is just funny. He is humble, self-deprecating, witty, and not afraid to show that he doesn’t excel at all sports. Plus, he wears lavender suits and he wears them well.

Recently in Kiskadee there was a discussion that not everyone can wear pastels. Not true, of course! The real issue is finding the right pastel shade for your skin tone. Pairing a pastel with a deep shade maybe all you need to embrace this spring fashion mainstay.


Michelle is a beautiful woman who is typically drawn to jewel tones. Wearing a very pale color would not suit her complexion, but this light magenta is perfect to brighten her tone yet still feels of the spring season.


Here is another way to add pastels to your wardrobe this season: take the perfect lavender spring-weight sweater and place it underneath a dress. It is completely on trend, plus the sweater is gorgeous on its own topping a skirt or your favorite white denim.


Some say yellow is a difficult color to wear, yet this shade of butter yellow complements many skin tones. And I wish you could feel the fabric…it is butter soft!

Yes, you can pair your pastels with deeper colors and white, but trying pairing them with other light neutrals such as gray and beige. It is so fresh and new, just like spring!
