Floral romper and pink heels

blog post


April 6, 2018

As much as we loved diving into the multi-color fashion trend last month, there’s an equal amount of space in our heart for the soft, powdery hues of pastels. From mint greens to yellow sorbet, we show you how to make pastels work this spring.

Check out how we styled pastel pieces with items from our Goodwill Store & Donation Center in Lake Forest.

Pale lime mini-skirt and lavender off the shoulder top


Pair a few different pastel colors together for a soft, yet bold look. Try color-blocking pastels, like we did with this pale lime mini-skirt and lavender off the shoulder top!

Add a little edge to the softness of pastels with fun, bright accessories.

#OCGoodwill Style Tip: When wearing brights and pastels together, try choosing complementary colors that way the pieces will stand on their own and don’t compete with each other – like this blush dress and red heels!

Sleeveless collared blue top with lace detailed mini skirt Blush top with lace detailing and a cute bow tie


For an extra delicate and feminine look, pair pastel pieces with lace items or find items that incorporate the two. We love the innocence of this blush top with lace detailing and a cute bow tie!

Yellow sleeveless top with denim mini skirt Yellow sleeveless top with denim long sleeved denim shirt


Pair pastel pieces with denim for an effortlessly casual spring look. Top off with a floppy hat and sandals or wedges and you’re ready for brunch, a barbecue – you name it!

#OCGoodwill Style Tip: When in doubt, make your pastel piece pop by keeping the rest of your color palette simple and neutral.
