In 2011 Fashion Trends, Fashion Scarves, Get the Look, Pashmina Scarves, Pashmina Shawls and Scarves, Women's Scarves on July 20, 2011 at 3:22 pm

We know it’s mid-July, but fashion-forward ladies must know future trends so they can be prepared when the new season starts. We have been keeping an eye on what’s going on on the catwalks and as the pre-fall collections made their debut we have noticed a future trend emerging.

Must-have for fall: pretty pastels. If up to this moment, neon colors were everywhere, invading our wardrobes, for the end of the summer/beginning of fall we get to break out from all the neons and enter the world of sweet pastel colors. Baby blue, light pink, yellow and lavender are the colors you should be looking for next time you go shopping. Designers have already presented us with pastel creations, from feminine dresses to menswear-inspired suits, so get ready to see much more of this trend in the months to come.

Future scarf trends include pastels as well so get ready to adorn yourself with silky pashminas and fashion scarves in pretty tones of pink and blue. The trendiest scarf collections include basic pastels, like light pink, bubble gum, baby blue , as well as bold combos of pastels.

Light Pink Pashmina Shawl

Baby Blue Pashmina Shawl

Butter Yellow Pashmina Shawl

Lavender Pashmina Shawl

For fashion-forward ladies we suggest bold pastel color combinations and fun styles and designs.

Do you think pastels are a nice break from all the bright neons?
