First it was the little black dress, then the little white dress had a turn in the spotlight and now the little pastel dress is having its moment to shine. Pastels like peach, mint, soft yellow and salmon pinks have been permeating the runways and red carpets over the last year. Designers like Calvin Klein, Versace and Phillip Lam all showed fresh, flirty and fun pastel dresses at their runway shows.   These muted shades are typically synonymous with Easter, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t rock a cute pastel dress year round.  Whether its a killer cocktail dress or a feminine sundress, the little pastel dress is a trend that we think deserves a place in your wardrobe.

For a simple summertime look that incorporates a pastel dress, pair a mint colored cotton pastel dress with nude sandals and a nude belt at the waist.  The mint hue is perfect when paired with nude and the belt at the waist will enhance your curves making you look both sweet and sexy.  For a more daring ensemble we suggest pairing a very fitted peach colored mini dress with black pumps and a black blazer. This look is great for date night or girl’s night out. The soft color of the dress helps to anchor the sexiness of the high heels and tight fabric.
