Spring/Summer 2014 Trends: Pastels

Hello! So today's post, I will be discussing the Spring and Summer trends for 2014. It will be a series-- a motivation for posting more and just blogging what I like...and that's fashion. Dun dun DUN!
In the series, each post will be about trends about the recent runway shows. Today, we will be looking at the Burberry S/S14 show.

Burberry is my favorite fashion house so it's fitting to do the first trend on the British brand. Through out the show, it's obvious that one of Christopher Bailey's main idea was to implement pastel colors, or, the "English Rose" to his designs. Cardigans, pencil skirts, and coats are adorned with these lovely colors.

Firstly, let's take a look at some of my favorite garments from the collection:

The creamy blue lining on the button-down offers
a little of the pastel trend while maintaining Burberry's
roots with the trench-style coat.

I adore this outfit. The clear vinyl over coat with
the lace shirt and skirt is a must.
A great finale outfit.

I love this outfit. The mint green cardigan and the
lace blue button down, pencil skirt, and underwear
are the dream garments that I want in my closet, but
unfortunately, don't have the $$$ to have.

The mint green lace trench coat is a nice twist
to the traditional trench coat.

Personally, I love the trend and can be worn easily with simple items such as a mint green dress or a soft yellow handbag. Here is my take on the trend with a set I made on polyvore.

The "dream" outfit I styled includes:
-Mulberry flower handbag

Yes, these garments are quite realllyy expensive. So here are some alternatives that still implement the pastel trend.

Lilac Swing Dress
Light Pink Cocoon Coat

Mint Green Combat Boots

Lemon Satchel Bag

At the end of these posts, I will have a youtube video of the trend-inspired show. So here it is, Burberry S/S14 Show. Have fun with the trend.
