How To Nail The Pastel Trend This Spring Without Looking Too Girly

Spring is in the air and its so close I can almost taste it!  The days seem to be getting a little brighter and I don’t know about you but I’m so happy about it.  I love the cosy evenings that Autumn/Winter brings but it plays havoc with my energy levels and don’t even get me started on trying to take blog photos in natural light.

I’m excited about all that Spring has to bring from the warmer days that are lighter for longer to the daffodils in my garden and the fashion.

This year, bold stripes and utility styling is IN along with, you’ve guessed it pastels!  There’s so many ways to get the look with pastels from the uber girlie to the soft and subtle.  In today’s post I’ll show you how to nail the pastel trend with some gorgeous new pieces from Esprit.

First up, we have the subtle look; ideal for those who aren’t drawn to pastels but are fashion conscious enough to acknowledge this repeated trend.  The EDC Stretch Jeans here have contrasting stitching in pastel pink as a decorative accent on the pockets as well as pink turn ups to the ankle.  This is about as subtle as it gets when it comes to pastels and the mid grey wash ensures that you can still create an edgier look with these jeans.

Fancy stepping it up a notch?  Then the pastel High-Top Trainers here would look awesome with skinny jeans or leggings.  With fold over cuffs and a mix of materials, they’re effortlessly stylish for that model off duty look and come in three colour ways.

Sticking with the high top trainers and adding the EDC Ultra Light Down Jacket, here, in pastel pink or blue would create a gorgeous pastel look that’s bang up to date with the current trends.  The 90s came back with force in 2016 and they’re here to stay this year so this sporty puffer jacket would not only be fashionable but practical too.  Fancy a walk anyone?

If sporty and casual isn’t your style then EDC Blazer Coat in a cotton blend here is the perfect option.  Available in pastel pink and blue, this piece gives you the option of wearing it to work to keep you warm on chillier spring days, over jeans and a roll neck at the weekend a la InTheFrow or over an LBD at night for a pop of colour.

Whatever your style, you can work pastels into your wardrobe by adding a couple of key pieces.  Stick to fabrics that you feel comfortable in and cuts that give you an added confidence boost.

How would you wear the pastel trend this spring?  Which is your favourite piece from Esprit?

    I love pastel shades that are in. Not a fan of pink (or stereotypical "girly" things) but loving what i've seen in shops in terms of the pastel trend. I love both the blazer most from your selection x

    I love the pastel look. I have a few nail polishes I've been wearing, but it'll be nice to invest in some pretty pastel clothing 🙂

    I do wish pastel shades would suit me. I'm super pale and can get away with some clothes in baby pinks and blue but not all.

    I would give blues and green and try. Not sure pink pastels would suit me.

    I'm honestly a bit sick of pastels but you're selling it to me here. I could definitely rock those jeans with the pastel accents.
