Pastels for spring just feel right, don’t they? I’m definitely more of a muted color person, versus bold and saturated. I find them to be more flattering on my skin tone, and just easier to style too. So once spring rolls around, I find myself grabbing new colors, but they’re always in more muted pastel hues.
Think soft pinks, sage greens, and dusty blues. I’m also lilac’s biggest fan these days. I love them all so much. And mixing them together can create interesting outfits without having to go bold with color. Here are some of my favorite spring pastel outfits to try.
Cute Pastel Outfit Ideas For Spring
Mixing Pastels – Lilac And Sage
I think these two just go together perfectly. I loved this outfit for a summer as a great work look. Would also be cute for a spring or summer daytime party. Adding in the brown leather helps to create some contrast.
These sage green pants would also be great with black or brown for a more contrasting look. But I love the idea of pastels from head to toe. Mixing pastels is really easy and it’s hard to mess it up. If you’re feeling too much like an easter egg, add in some creams or denim to break it up.
All Things Lilac
I love lilac for spring and summer. It’s one of my absolute favorite colors. This is a bit of a periwinkle almost, and it still falls in that category for me.
For spring and summer, try a simple button-front dress. Whether you go short or midi length, it’s truly a staple. Add neutral accessories like a white leather and woven mix bag and a nude sandal.
Pastel Sorbet Pinks And Peaches
My friend Shelby loves color and I just adore this peachy pink pastel outfit. The striped pants have a few pretty pastels in them like yellow, pink and peach. And doubling down on more peach makes it feel like a complete pastel monochromatic outfit.
And for a styling tip, how perfect is pulling out the pastel color of peach and making your accessory be the pigmented version of it? I love that. It’s the perfect contrast.
A Spring Pastel Blazer
If you’re a blazer person like I am, just swap your tan or navy blazer for a pastel one. It’s the easiest swap and feels so fresh for spring. Choose a pastel blazer in a linen or cotton fabric so you can wear it into summer with shorts or dresses.
I love this simply paired with denim and a white tee. Coordinated lilac sandals to lean into my favorite color of the season even more.
I also grabbed this yellow linen blazer from Madewell. Paired with denim or white, it’s really so simple to style as it feels like a total neutral. You can also color-block it with some blues or purples, and even soft sage green!
Not every outfit has to be head-to-toe pastel pieces. I think one fun way to get in on this trend is to just sprinkle it in. Take this neutral outfit of a simple white shirt dress. By adding a playful pastel blue pump, it just makes this outfit so much more interesting to the eye. Y
ou could even add a pastel bag. But just adding a pastel silk bandana to the bag helps to tie it all together. So if pastels feel too overwhelming, just try it in an accessory to ease into it.
Making Pastels For Spring More Edgy
Pastels can feel a bit sweet and feminine. But adding a pastel leather jacket to your spring look is definitely a more edgy way to do this trend. I love the play on blues here. Different shades within a color are an effortless way to put an outfit together. Brooklyn Blonde can truly do no wrong.
The great thing about this pastel blue leather jacket is that you can also take it into fall as well. Pair with a darker denim, or all black, or shades of brown. It’s truly a versatile color.
