When you think about the trends that come out of this fashion season, it’s easy to let your mind go straight to the catwalks-and it makes perfect sense. Historically, much of the way we used to get the trends was through the designer’s runway showings. In the last several years, however, the focused has shifted (in part) to another aspect of fashion weeks in New York, Paris, Milan, London, and more.

Start off with something classic, versatile, and basically easy to wear with just about anything. I absolutely love a leather biker jacket. It may not be for everyone, but it really makes a bold statement. Stick with pastel biker in pink. It is so pretty, chic, and just stunning really. And the best part is you can wear this jacket by Michael Kors with a casual shirt and a pair of skinny jeans. Then turn around and wear it at night time over an amazing evening dress. So, day to night in a matter of seconds, and you will look beautiful since pastel pink is so flattering.
Pastel isn’t just for clothes; these trending tones are going to your face as well. Why you might ask? Because we girls love makeup. And the beauty industry is showcasing pastels in the form of eye shadow and a beautifully perfected lip. I love how fresh faced you can look naturally with this airy makeup. It is perfect for a daytime at the office, or going out for a night midnight cruise. The best way to apply your makeup naturally is with a brush and then go over it lightly with your finger and you will be ready for your close up.
