Fashion Jobs – Wearing Pastels at the Office

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobsfeature

Now that the cold weather has diminished and winter is coming to an end, its time to retire those dark shades for a soft, romantic, and cupcake obsessed look. With Easter just wrapping up its easy to visualize the pastel hues that I will be sharing for your new office ready look; velvety peach, powdery mint, guava, milk caramel, pale pink, lavender, baby blues, and of course Pantone’s Spring 2016 color of the year ‘Rose Quartz’. You don’t want to look like you’re going to an Easter parade, but these colors are shockingly easy to wear with a just a few simple tips.

Pastels work cohesively together, creating a flow between each color, allowing us to mix and patch these beautiful cotton candy shades. Watching models strut down the runway in head to toe printed pastels looks great on top models. However; realistically for any everyday look, its better to stick on a minimalistic scale. Especially in relation to wearing it to the office. Solid color blocking is more professional then a bohemian floral print. It’s classic, sophisticated and playful all tied into one ultimate spring look.

Fashion Jobs – Soft Pastels for Fall

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Style Nine to Five - Fashion JobsFall Fashion - Soft Pastels

Fall Fashion - Soft Pastels“You should only wear pastels in the spring,” said no one ever. Pastel hues add life to your wardrobe and they make for some super delicate and feminine pieces to incorporate into your daily fashion. Contrast them with neutral shades for a pop of color and -if you’re feeling extra daring-throw on a pair of neon pumps to spice it up. I love the color-block effect and combining a few colours that complement one another (it’s more fun). For example, a soft pink pull-over and a pair of comfy spearmint jeans. Here are a few looks to get you started!

Montreal Fashion Jobs – Pretty in Pastels

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

There is nothing more refreshing than pastels in the spring time. The two almost seem to go hand in hand with one another. 2013 has proven itself to be the year of ultra-fem clothing. Everything from florals to lace and pastels have been coming out of the woodwork and sneaking into our wardrobes. Luckily for us, pastel clothing works with virtually every skin tone and has been seen on almost every runway for the Spring/Summer season. Another great thing about pastels is that you can easily mix and match for a soft colour blocking effect. Try pairing some skinny jeans in a light hue with a pastel top then mix in different shades with your accessories; you’ll be rocking springs freshest trend in no time.
