Trend Watch Spring 2014 – Peppy Pastels

Is there any better way to salute the return of spring (or upcoming Easter) than by wearing pastels? Luckily the spring/summer 2014 runways were filled with soft blues, pinks and lavenders, making pastels a fashion-must this season.

Don’t think about the child-like connotations associated with pastels. It turns out, babies and adults can don those pale shades with ease. Designers like Rebecca Minkoff and Chanel partnered the soft-hued clothes with edgier accessories. Mixing and matching styles is a great way to assemble your pastel look – pair your baby pink dress with chunky boots or shape jewellery.

Here are some of our favourite peppy pastels pieces from the spring 2014 runways. Which one would you wear?

The temperature is getting warmer across Canada and we couldn’t be happier. It’s time to strip off those pants and don a cool dress instead. If you’re not much of a dress wearer during the winter, now is the perfect time to transition into a flowy frock.

Whether it’s sleeveless or has an asymmetrical skirt, a new, fabulous dress is a fashion staple. For spring 2014, snag yourself an anytime, go-to dress that can work for any occasion. Here are a few of my top picks from The Peacock Parade this week.

Part Kristen Stewart and part Nicki Minaj, this geometric mini is sure to turn heads.

Avant-garde designer and Lady Gaga favourite Nicola Formichetti debuted his first collection with Diesel this week. The designer was known for his work styling Mother Monster and working at French fashion house MUGLER (Thierry Mugler) before abruptly leaving last year. After a year of being with Diesel, he finally showcased his men’s and women’s looks. Seems like he knows his way around denim and leather.

Prada released a third fragrance until their Candy umbrella called Florale. The success of their Candy perfume made it hard for Prada to sit on making more. Perfumer Daniel Andrier created all three scents in the series and is thrilled about this one. He was inspired to make a perfume from an imaginary flower that smells of candy. Yum!
