Now that it's officially Springtime - can I get a 'woop woop!' - I'm really starting to see the appeal of pastels, most especially lilac and lavendar pieces as they make a great contrast against black and white. 

To try and get more of an idea on how to style them and not look like a bag of candyfloss, I made up a few outfits to show how they can be incorporated into everyday wear.

How to Wear Spring Pastels I

This outfit is really fun. The frilly socks and strappy heels mean that it could be kinda girley, but I think the graphic tee and the tie-dye shorts (how awesome are they?!) keep it from being too cutesy. I can imagine myself wearing this to the park on a sunny day.

This is one of my favourite looks. I think these shorts are really cute, and love that they can be dressed up by teaming them with whites and heels, or dressed down like this by mixing them with the black crop, gladiator sandals, and choker necklace.

This is one of those outfits that I completely love but couldn't actually see myself wearing. Probably because there's no black in it. I really like the structure of the top and skirt together, and the sheer panels on them both, as i literally cant get enough of sheer panels right now - seriously, it's becoming a problem - and I think pairing it with the trainers makes it more casual.

This is probably the most wearable of the four looks as the colours are much more muted and the pastel is kept to a minimal pop of colour in the top and sandals. The leather skirt and dogtooth coat toughen up the look and make a really nice contrast with the baby pink sandals and delicate jewellery.

What do you think of these looks? How would you wear your pastels?

Hope you all have a great weekend :)
