I’ve recently transitioned to a more neutral wardrobe consisting of browns, grays, creams, whites, etc. It worked very well for the winter, but now that spring is fast approaching I find that I need to add a few more essentials to my wardrobe. I was also left with a conundrum. Brighter colors are always in for spring, how would I incorporate that into a neutral wardrobe?
I found my answer: pastels! Pastels happen to be in this season as well, but even if they weren’t I don’t think I’d have trouble finding any. Wearing all neutrals with one item in a pastel shade looks incredible and is perfect for the spring season.
I’m excited to put away my winter clothes and start looking for gems to add to my spring collection. Remember to weed out your closet periodically by donating clothes you no longer fit in or don’t wear anymore.
How are you getting your wardrobe ready for spring?
I usually don’t pick up on trends, but I’ve been into nail polishes a lot lately and wanted to share spring colors. These are my favorite three shades I’m seeing worn, pictured in magazines, and being talked about. Remember, you can always substitute brands. The important thing here is the color! Anything pastel, white, or even nude is in this season.
What are your favorite shades for three trends? Leave a comment below! I’m especially looking to purchase a new white, so give me some recommendations!
Dulce de Leche by OPI: A perfect nude shade for those with fair to medium skin tones, matches with everything this season. When having doubts choosing a color that won’t clash with an outfit, this is the one to go with!

White Tip by Sally Hansen: There are many wonderful shades of white out there, but this is all I have at the moment. White is the new black for this season! Expect to see a lot of lighter shades. Like black, white gives an indie sort of look and makes a statement.

Mint Sorbet by Sally Hansen: A light mint or even a pastel mint shade seems to be popular for the spring. I’m seeing a lot of it in magazines. This is such a fun color you can experiment with!
