Ever since Pantone released their 2016 Colours of the Year, Rose Quartz and Serenity, the fashion world has been obsessed with dreamy pastels.
Soft pinks, baby blues, lavender purples, mint greens and honey yellows are colours waiting to be inducted into your spring wardrobe.
But if you're anything like us, the thought of adding a palette of playful colours into your closet that consist of mostly blacks, greys and whites is probably daunting. You simple don't do colour and we understand that.
But transitioning your fashion game from winter to spring can be easily done with the help of pastels. The enchanting soft hues can swiftly become a warm weather staple that adds pep and depth to your usual black ensemble when styled right.
With pastels, you can either stick to one hue or mix and match. Pull off a monochromatic get-up for a simple, yet sophisticated look or switch around your cotton candy colours for a bolder ensemble. And don't fret, if you're not ready to give up your neutral wardrobe, you can add pastels pieces for subtle touches to amplify your colour palette.
Pastels also look fantastic mixed with denim, whether that be in the forms of jeans or tops.
Available in many different textures and fabrics, pastels are an easy way to become an outfit's key element. Whether you're wearing a shimmering pastel metallic sweater, a chiffon blouse, or leather skirt, the soft hues have a innocent, yet strong depth to it that doesn't complicate a look.
After the spring 2015 runway circuit, with the likes of Coach, and then again at the 2015 fall shows with Prada, pastels proved their place in high fashion. The whimsical hues are still demanding our attention in spring 2016, so it's time to take note.
From skirts to button-ups and light trench coats to high-waisted trousers, here are some enchanting pastel #OOTD's to inspire your next spring look!
