While the weather is starting to warm up, there’s one aspect of this winter that we’ll be holding onto through spring. We’re talking about icy cool-toned pastels!
We’ve already professed our love for Burberry’s 2014 Spring and Summer collections, but we’re going to go there again. Pastels + embellishments = our kind of party. Check out our Burberry-inspired DIY if you love this look as much as we do!
A lot of the looks at Prabal Gurung embraced this icy aesthetic with shimmering satin fabrics in pretty, polished colors.
The looks at John Galliano offered a new spin to the classic pastel. Gone are the days that pastels are reserved for delicate spring florals and Easter Sunday dresses! The new pastel is modern, edgy and refreshing.
The ladies at DKNY looked radiant in orchid. Pantone puns aside, this year’s Color of the Year fell into pastel territory, and other hues seemed to follow suit.
If wearing pastels head to toe isn’t working for you, take the accessory approach. Sneak it into your style via bags, shoes or sunglasses. It worked for neon two summers ago, right?
Are you going to try out the pastel trend, or are these icy hues too cool for you?
Embellishments are so hot for spring, and we couldn’t wait to take advantage of this fun trend! This DIY is modeled after the looks at the Burberry Spring/Summer 2014 show, classic shapes with sparkling accents.

We’re so excited to ring in spring! What are you most looking forward to do this season?
Anyone can spot a French girl from a kilometer away. She looks put together without trying. She is effortlessly chic. She’s a master at layering, and her style exudes romance. You might think that sweet sentiment was embraced during Paris Fashion Week SS2014. Well you would stand corrected because this year the power players played with power as a theme.
Those dark headdresses at Louis Vuitton made the models look showgirl-chic. The feathers, the embellishments, and the attention paid to the tiniest decorative detail really show how skilled this fashion house is at its craft.
While we may never be royals, we can always pretend with Valentino’s collection. It featured heavy embroidery, and silhouettes worthy of a queen. We loved that the looks were paired with simple, flat Grecian sandals. Who says queens need to be subjected to the hazards of heels?
Coco Chanel once said, “The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.” We think someone was definitely thinking aloud when creating this collection! Chanel’s classic looks were taken to bold extremes: huge pearls, saturated tweed suits, and extreme neon makeup.
Givenchy mixed Japanese and African influences for this collection. Some of the models donned crystal-covered kabuki “masks”, which were both sparkly AND a little intimidating. We wonder if they used Swarovski crystals, preferably not hot fix! Ouch!
The Rick Owens show really blew us away. Remember that ethereal Parisian we were talking about earlier? Yeah, this show wasn’t for her. Step dancers took the stage in lieu of models, and powered through an energetic dance number. Watch the video above, and join us in collective awe.
