Looking Forward To Spring: A Pastel Palette

Looking forward to spring, today I am featuring a favorite spring 2012 runway trend - Pastels!!!  Designers gave this spring season a sense of airiness with a range of pastel tones. Before you start envisioning Easter eggs, stick with me here.  I promise you can make this trend chic and pull it off fabulously.  We'll start with the runway inspiration...

A pastel-inspired wardrobe works whether you are lounging around on a lazy Sunday or attending a black tie affair.  Here are a few of my favorite evening wear and casual pastel looks.

 I was quite shocked to see so many soft pastels on the runway, especially on NYC runways, where edginess and experimental fashion abound.  But just as sorbet is a cleanser to the palette, I felt that the softer hues debuting for spring cleansed my fashion palette.
