Pretty pastel hues were all over the Spring runways and designers such as Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Miu Miu, and Lanvin all embraced the soft pigments. The feminine color palette is a great way to spruce up your wardrobe heading into spring. A few of my styling tips on how to party in your pastels are below.

 

+  Pair your pastel-hued jeans with a neutral top or light sweater for a relaxed look.

+  Make a color statement by adding a candy colored clutch to a neutral or black going out look.

+  Try pumping up your look by color blocking with your pastels. You might try pairing a soft yellow blouse with a dusty pink skirt and add a sky blue leather coat with a mint green bag and you would be wearing the trend like the best of them.

anna-sui-e-tumi

What a perfect opportunity to introduce the Anna Sui for Tumi collection since I’m venturing cross country today and traveling back to LaLa Land. Its been real, its been fun Florida but work on the opposite coast is calling my name. With 8 bags in counting, and the majority being black, I bet I’ll be wishing I had a whole fleet of these Tumi creations when I’m lost in a sea of bags at LAX baggage claim.

The Anna Sui luggage collab with Tumi will be hitting stores Spring 2012 and will be sold in select Tumi stores and www.tumi.com.
