People often say you are what you eat. Why not reflect summer's favorite sweet treat, in an ice cream pastel color theme?! This season I am especially loving the pastel trend, for it is naturally brings vacations vibes with me everywhere I go! 

People often say you are what you eat. Why not reflect summer's favorite sweet treat, in an ice cream pastel color theme?! Indulge your taste buds with light and flavorful ice cream pastels and trust me when I say this trend is hot this summer! This trend was seen all across the board from Chanel to Victoria Beckham. What makes this look perfect for summer is the fact that all of the light colors reflect the sun, keeping you cool, collected, and on-trend. Whether the looks are monochromatic like Versace presented, or a colorful combination like Celine’s designs, pastels are definitely turning heads this season.

 

From happy hour to game day, pastels are no longer a “female only” trend. Men will be seen rocking pastels all summer long in a variety of ways.  During fashion week Seis Marjan showcased a menswear collection dripping in pastels that created a fierce new look for men to rock. Downplay the pastels with contrasting accessories similar to what Coach showcased down the runway, or keep it subtle with just a pastel top inspired by Helmut Lang. For blue-collar men, don’t fret, because pastel suits are coming your way reflecting the Qasimi spring/summer 2018 collection.
