Easter Palette: Modern Pastels

Pastel color palette for easter

Are you celebrating Easter this weekend? I have such fond memories of Easters past: dying eggs, friendly bunnies, and chocolate galore of course! Now I'm drawn to a more sophisticated take on the holiday with this modern pastel palette. Hues like pistachio, orchid, sky, and blush feel new when paired with washed-out greys and bold accents of deep magenta or flashing gold.

If you think you can't wear pastels, well, I'm here to tell you it is doable! Just look for clean lines, floaty fabrics, and contrasting neutrals like crisp white and stark black. When in doubt, a mani-pedi is a sure bet—Joanna turned me onto these Scotch Naturals polishes—but why take the safe route when there are so many risk-worthy options out there?
