Not like you need a reason to buy new jeans, but there’s no better excuse than to get board with the pastel denim trend. With ultra-girly hues like bubblegum pink and mint green spotted on the stars, grabbing a pair of these is a surefire way to show your softer side. This trend works best slim or straight with a mid to low rise. Offset your brilliant choice in coloured bottoms by keeping your top half simple, and your footwear equally neutral. No one wants to remember (or for that matter, repeat) the horrible choices Mischa Barton once made with too-high, too-tight yellow denim, a cropped floral blouse and bright red pumps. And now for the winner’s circle…
We love that the former star of The City and budding fashion designer Whitney Port reversed roles by pairing her peach pants with a laidback denim top. Nicky Hilton stepped out in a pale pink pair of J Brand jeans, and got wild in a good way with a neutral animal print sweater. Other all-stars in the pastel denim game: Cameron Diaz in a beige tailored blazer, plain white t-shirt and coral denim, Leann Rimes at the airport in the palest green shade, paired with her burgundy McQueen scarf, and the always stunning Rachel Bilson dressing up her lavender legs with a silky top and nude heels at a FOX event.
Who did it best? Are you going to follow suit and pick up pastel denim?
