Pretty in Pastels: Fashion Trends of 2012

Last updated 4 years ago

Summer is the perfect season for pastels. Whether you are attending a garden party, a beach get-together, a cocktail party, or a wedding, pastel colors on evening dresses, sundresses, skirts, shirts, and shorts are the way to go for the coming months. However, just like with any tones, you must ensure that the pastels you choose complement your coloring.

• Winter Skin Tones
For a winter skin tone, you are sitting pretty with pale pastels. Choose icy pastel colors such as very pale blues and greens and light greys and pure whites. Winter skin tones often go well with pastel yellows and muted pinks as well as dusty rose. Steer clear of earth tones such as browns.

• Spring Skin Tones
For a spring skin tone, you can also wear a wide variety of beautiful pastels. Pastel peach, mint, coral, and pale blue look lovely on people with spring skin tones. Steer clear of stark black and white color combinations, as they can easily wash out your skin.

• Summer Skin Tones
For a summer skin tone, soft, muted undertones and cool pastels look best. Go for pastel pinks and blues as well as soft heather grey. Colors such as powder blue, dusty pink, soft whites, pale yellow, lavender, and mint look great on people with summer skin tones. Avoid vivid colors that may drown out your subtle coloring.

• Autumn Skin Tones
For an autumn skin tone, go for warm colors, such as pastel pinks, oranges, and yellows. Spicy tones like muted cinnamon and pastel pumpkin look wonderful on people with autumn skin tones as well.
