Plumager® Print Design - Making Your Pastel Dreams a Reality

How Make Your Pastel Dreams a Realty

Our favorite trend this month is Dreamy Pastels! We're loving the dreamy, summer colors and whimsical patterns! It's easy to incorporate pastels into your next collection. Below are some tips to get you started!

A pastel color is defined as any hue with a high value (lightness) and low to medium saturation (the purity or intensity of the color). When we hear the word "pastel", soft pinks and blues immediately come to mind. However, soft neutrals and muted tones are a great entry point to pastels! This geo print from Kate Spade is a sophisticated take on an all pastel print.

Use pastels to convey optimism. Whether it's a bright note in an otherwise somber collection, or a totally exuberant statement, pastels are sure to give positive vibes. This poppy pastel print from Sportmax makes us want to jump for joy!

Pastel colors are traditionally associated with the spring and summer months, but don't be afraid to experiment! Soft snowy hues look great in winter hues, like this cool puffer by Perfect Moment.
