Fashion is having a pastel moment right now — everything from dresses to shoes to sunglasses have been dipped in these softer shades for Spring. Runways including Louis Vuitton, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Vera Wang debuted lighter looks for this season, and style setters like Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, and Kirsten Dunst have already tested out the trend. Accordingly, we headed over to Saks Fifth Avenue Beverly Hills and styled up some Spring-perfect outfits using a pastel palette. From a breezy daytime look to a sequined minidress, watch to see how you can wear pastels from day to night. On Allison McNamara: Proenza Schouler dress.
The feathers were most definitely flying on the runways for Spring, and designers made it abundantly clear that a little touch of plumage can go a long way. At Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs showed an innocent young debutante, flitting about in frothy feather-trim dresses and candy-colored pencil skirts, while Ralph Lauren's runway spotlighted full-blown Great Gatsby-era opulence, giving way to beaded gowns and marabou toppers. Not only were feathers a huge runway trend, but they've been taking off on the red carpet too — just recently at the 2012 Met Gala, style stars like Diane Kruger, Kate Bosworth, and Beyoncé all sported gorgeous gowns fitted with the fluffy stuff, proving that feathers can look fun, flirty, and ultimately glamorous. The best news of all? A feathered dress, skirt, or a bit of feather trim on a top can be incredibly wearable for day or night.
