The last time pastels were a hot trend for spring feels like just yesterday. Then we stopped and thought about it, and realized that it was probably back when we were in high school. But we are loving this trend just as much this time around!
Pastels can be ultra-feminine, but also super chic when paired with structured neutrals. The only problem with the length of this particular fashion cycle is that it makes pastel shades that much harder to find in a thrift store. They’re not impossible to find, by any means, but it can be difficult to find pieces in the shade you’re looking for that don’t scream, say, backyard barbecue circa 1999.
Hunting this trend took some dedication! But we got lucky and found some adorable thrifted sweaters in cozy pastels. Sweaters tend to be in amazing abundance at thrift stores, so these weren’t even the only ones we found, simply the ones that inspired us most without causing closet repetition.
