Pastel in 2012 Fashion Trends for Less

We are finally in 2012, and already we've seen many Fashion Trends which were up and coming in 2011 but much anticipated for this year! Such trends include:  

Color Blocking which you can click here for fashionable looks for less
Metallic a Celebrity favorite which can be found here &
Animal Prints a worldwide trend, with many affordable options as seen here.

For this week's trend I want to focus on Pastel, a trend which has been around for many years, yet it seems that it is becoming a very fashionable trend this year thus far. describes the Pastel trend as "Spring’s sweet sorbet shades and pastel hues {which} give off a low-key, ladylike vibe."  This is exactly why this trend is very popular simply because Pastel colors can be worn throughout any season, for any occasion, on any day!

As seen above and below, a lot of celebrities have been and are currently sporting the Pastel trend, whether its for a casual day out or for Award Shows -- it is evident that Pastel is a very versatile trend which is why it is so popular!


You can still follow this Pastel trend while you're on a budget, and still look fabulous! Below are a few suggestions of Pastel clothing that are CURRENTLY available at all major apparel locations, the suggestions below (on the left) are all fashion items that can be found at Macys and Forever 21 all under $40. Also, pastel trends are not just in clothes, you can also accessorize with Pastel jewelry, shoes and more as seen below (on the right), items all from Target under $30.

This is one of the most wearable fashion trends out there right now, as mentioned before Pastels can be worn on a daily basis, or even on an elegant evening out. 
Have you worn this trend? If so, what types of Pastel items have you paired together?
