Pastel Dreams

16 Jul

Denim has always been a staple, but it seems that the world of fashion has moved on from the traditional denim colour into all colours of the rainbow. From neons, to prints and pastels, the world of denim has been rattled with the addition of colour and we love it! Our favourite denim trend is the pastels – these soft and dreamy colours are both romantic and feminine and we just can’t get enough of them. From romantic pinks, beautiful lavenders and minty greens there is a colour for every mood (and being girls, we can get quite moody!). This trend is best worn in a slim or straight cut, and the key is to keep the rest of your look soft and neutral. Our favourite denim is, of course, J Brand 811 Mid Rise Skinny and we promise that once you put a pair on, you will never want to take them off. These jeans are soft and comfortable, and seem to contour to the shape of your body in the most flattering way possible! Its no wonder that 90% of ladies who try a pair of J Brands on will end up going home with them – now how is that for a statistic?!

So, regardless of the tone of your skin, complexion or even hair colour, you can be sure that there is a hue out there for you. And if you haven’t gotten your pastel fix yet, do it! Feeling apprehensive as to how to rock this look? See how our favourite celebs and bloggers style this pastel trend.

This fabulous colour and perfect fit make these jeans an unforgettable piece, no matter where you wear them! White is a great neutral colour for summer and a go-to choice with your pastel denim.  We love the way Alessandra wore these jeans for a casual day when strolling around town!

Fashion blogger, Aimee Song paired her J Brand lilac jeans with a sequin tank and denim shirt…this outfit couldn’t be more perfect! Although this outfit may be a little riskier for a pastel beginner, Aimee nailed it by glamming it up with a touch of sequin, and neutralizing it with earthy-toned heels and bag.

The lovely Rach from Pink Peonies created an effortlessly chic outfit with her J Brand lilac jeans! We love the way Rach paired her superb jeans with a flowy top and black heels, creating a sophisticated yet flirty look! We totally adore this look for date night –  the black bag, shoes and top really highlighting the lilac colour and dressing it up.

You don’t have to keep your look limited to neutral colours. As you get more comfortable with pastels, you’ll become more creative with your outfits, like fashionista Blair from Atlantic-Pacific. Blair  created an oh-so adorable outfit by combining  her J Brand Mid Rise Pastel Skinny Jeans in Lilac  with other pastels.  The mint scarf and aqua jacket add a burst of spectacular colour to her outfit, while the romantic pink heels and blouse soften it up! These feminine and flirty jeans feature lightweight stretch denim for a perfectly flattering fit from hip to ankle!

For more ideas on how to wear your light pink denim, here are a few outfits:

1. Swept Away: Spending some time by the water this summer? Faded pink looks with nautical white and blue stripes and creates a new spin on the traditional nautical look. Just picture yourself strolling around the Hamptons in this little outfit – you’ll fit right in!

Spring Fling 2012: The Maxi Skirt

22 Mar

We’ve had some really good times with maxi dresses, but it seems that last summer’s fling is coming to an end. This summer, we’re starting a new love affair with maxi skirts. Like all things worthwhile, maxi skirts can be intimidating at first. But fear not ladies, these skirts are actually versatile and suitable for all shapes and sizes, as long as you choose well. Boho chic is the perfect summer trend – simple, effortless and free-spirited! We’ve assembled a few of our favourite  maxi skirt looks:

1. For Pleats Sake: Pleats are having a major moment this summer, so naturally, they make the maxi skirt so much more amazing. We love seeing pleats on maxi skirts in solid colours, paired with a simple tank like Lauren Conrad. If its your first maxi skirt, go for a solid colour with feminine pleats, and dress it with a simple white tank. Remember, since you’re modest at the bottom, its ok to show some skin on top and even go for a tighter fit. For an added boho-chic look, add a long necklace or a head band.

2. Short and Sweet: A lot of shorter girls are intimidated by the super length of maxi skirts. But, its actually amazing how beautiful these skirts look when paired with heels. Check out how tall Kim Kardashian looks in her maxi skirt, despite being only 5’2. Another lesson from Kim – if you’re on the curvy side, or have very broad shoulders, wearing a maxi skirt with some slits balances your figure.

3. Ready for Romance: Kate Bosworth’s outfit is perfect for falling in love! The combination of pastels with a touch of sparkle is ultra romantic! We really like Kate’s high-wasted skirt, which emphasizes her midriff and breaks up her top and bottom. This outfit is perfect fr those warm summer nights we’re all waiting for!

4. The Weekender: When we spotted Olivia Palermo’s sheer maxi look, we instantly thought of a lazy Sunday afternoon. Olivia’s look is perfect for a weekend trip to the market, an afternoon stroll in the park, or a brunch get-together. Adding shape to this flowy fabric is key, especially when combining a loosely fitted top and bottom. Olivia achieves this look by not only tucking in her blouse, but also adding a thing belt to the skirt. Your waist line is the slimmest part of your body, so you always want to draw attention to it! Even a petite girl like Olivia can wear this look without drowning in the fabric, by keeping it sheer, light and belted!

5. Fashion Forward: Once you get a little more comfortable with wearing a maxi skit, you can start playing around with different combinations.We really love the way Olivia put this country-chic look together. Of course, the basics are still there – show a little skin, belt your look, and use sheer fabric – but its  totally different way of wearing the maxi skirt!

Ladies, get out there and get your first, third or 10th maxi skirt. This trend is here and its here to stay!
