Keep reading to get some pastel inspiration to lighten up your style.

Hair

We just HAVE to mention pastel hair.  It seems to be all the rage nowadays, and while it’s definitely one of the more complicated ways to add pastels into your style, it’s just so fun!  It takes the feminine pastel and turns it into something edgy and non-conservative.

Spring into Fashion

Spring has finally arrived (at least for the moment), and it is BEAUTIFUL. Women are leaving their jackets at home and pulling out their dresses and skirts.

Spring Fashion Week came during one of the coldest weeks in February, when warm weather seemed like a lifetime away. But now that it’s finally here, we figured you could use a refresher course on some of the biggest trends for spring, and some ideas on how to make them wearable.

Florals

Romantic floral designs are always a staple when it comes to spring style.  Keep your style feminine by pairing it with soft hues, or add an instant edge with a leather jacket.

This means a lot of suede, and a lot of fringe.  This can be a tough look to pull off, but we recommend sticking to neutrals, a la the fashion goddess Olivia Palermo.

This ultra-feminine style was all over the runways, and we’re sure it’s going to be everywhere this spring too.  We recommend wearing yours with a romantic, high-neck top!

5 Ways to Parisian Chic

We’re so envious of how the French have managed through the decades to seem so effortlessly cool and flawless. We did some research @StyleLend to figure out the staples behind Paris’ Street Style. Check out our 10 must haves for that cool city chic vibe, some of the staples might already be hanging in your closet.

1.) A loved and worn vintage tee shirt.

Our Style Loves Devon Windsor & Edie Campbell paired their tee’s with black fitted skinny jeans and dark dark frames. We love the touch of punk that Devon incorporated by sporting a structures leather jacket. Black bags and cute booties are a must! Who said your beloved tee shirt from your teens couldn’t be chic!

2.) A tall pair of leather boots.

The funkier, the better— but they must be over the knee! You can take a basic neutral over the knee boot and pair it with some statement pieces or let the boots be a statement on their own. Either way we love how daringly bold over the knee boots are and how willingly they go with pretty much just about everything.

3.) A black skirt

Often we associate a black mid-length skirt with button down white shirt and some stuffy flats but these girls show you can dress it up with some fun and funky accessories to give the black skirt a little bit more life. We’re loving the fun pop of colors with the sneakers and the unique cut on the carven sweater.

4.) The clutch

It’s not just for evening affairs! Our eyes on these street chic models who prove just how versatile the clutch is. This season it’s all about a big oversized clutch in an eye-catching color or pattern. It’s an instant way to dress up a monochrome outfit and add some fun!

5.) The peg leg pant

The peg leg pant is a great day to night staple that can transition from the office to cocktails at Press Club. We suggest sporting an oversized bag and keeping the rest of the outfit in a neutral hue. Dress it up and get funky with the shoe. The peg leg pant allows you to show off the shoes, you’ve been dreaming of wearing.
