Get the Look: Pretty in Pastel (Reader Request)

The idea for this feature actually came from a reader, who feels that fashion has been mostly bold colors or neutrals and wanted to see some pastels for a change. Pastels always remind me of spring, and several designers such as Burberry Prorsum, Versace, and Alberta Ferretti apparently agree. All three designers featured pastels as part of their Spring 2010 RTW collections, as pictured below. (Photo credit)

If you, like the reader who requested this feature, want to get in touch with your girlie side, check out all the soft, pretty colors below which should immediately evoke thoughts of spring. All of my picks retail for less than $100, and as always you can click on any photo to purchase.

TopShop Knot Back Sundress - $65
This pale pink dress looks ladylike and maybe even a little bit plain from the front, but has a great knotted back detail to make it more fun.

American Apparel Fine Jersey Tee Dress - $10 (on sale)
This basic t-shirt dress also comes in seafoam green and pale pink. Perfect with sandals on a spring (or summer) day!

J Crew Silk Bonfire Dress - $88
Love the ruffles on this ginger colored silk dress.

Juicy Couture Bow Cotton-Silk Tank - $68.60 (on sale)
I adore the girly bow that adorns this basic tank.

Forever 21 Breezy Knot Sleeve Top - $6.80
This top comes in several pastel colors and will look great with jeans for now, and shorts once the temps warm up.

Forever 21 Ruffled Cap Sleeve Slub Tee - $17.80
Sweet ruffled shoulders add a feminine touch to a basic tee.

Talbots Pencil Skirt - $99
I could definitely see Emma Pillsbury (from Glee) wearing this ladylike pink skirt.

Urban Oufitters Essential Pash Wrap - $18
Want to add just a hint of pastel to your neutrals? This scarf is a great option, and it also comes in lilac.

Linea Paolo Frisco Flat - $99.95
These pale pink zipper flats are definitely on my wishlist for spring!
