Spring 2013 color trends: pastels

One of the big trends for spring 2013 is the pastel color palette. While bright hues and shades of neon remain important as we move into 2013 from 2012, pastel colors, which were first introduced in Paris last year, have moved to the forefront of fashion.

Pastel hues are vibrant this year. These are not baby pinks and baby blues; they are pastel candy colors which are sweet, playful and slightly edgy. Green is not soft, it is a bright mint and blue is the color of the sky on a clear day; not a baby boy’s blanket. Some brands and designers are even creating neon pastels for spring 2013. Sound like an oxymoron? It is; yet it works!

Vibrant pastel hues are easier for most people to wear, while baby soft hues can be tough for pale and dark skin-tones, vibrant pastels work with almost every skin-tone and hair color. Since spring 2013’s pastel color palette is easy to wear, it makes the perfect color palette to invest in for the upcoming warm weather season! Love that!

Many of spring 2013’s vibrant pastel hues can also be mixed and matched with certain neon hues and bright colors. One of the style trends for spring is to clash; mixing patterns and colors which are unexpected is du rigueur for the season. Spring 2013 is all about F-U-N! Love this!

The hottest pastel hues for spring 2013 include blue, green, pink, lavender, yellow and orange. What is your favorite pastel hue? Happy shopping and say fabulous
