WARNING:
This post is gonna be a long one. :))
=========================================

I've just read a post from Chictopia about the Top 5 Most Stylish Colors of the Year (see post HERE). Coincidentally, I was then browsing for clothes and stuff at the Forever21 website, too. "Soooo... Are you thinking what I'm thinking, B2?" Yes. I'm gonna make a post about my Forever21 picks using the Top 5 Most Stylish Colors of the year! :D


According to the Nordstrom Rack post on Chictopia,
"If spring 2011 was all about neon shades and flashy tones, for me 2012 means something a lot more different. After seeing Louis Vuitton’s SS12 collection or Jill Sander’s, I can only think about one thing: pastels. Mint, light ice cream pink, delicate butter yellow and romantic lavender. This is what about spring 2012 inspires me. It’s time to get primed and look like walking candy!"
Just recently, Forever21 has just released their PETAL METAL Trend Alert which featured pastel colors matched with metallics. I've seen really nice pieces from the collection, and so with this in mind, as I read the Chictopia Trend Alert, I immediately decided to pick some of my favorites and put them together in this blog post. :D

I challenge myself to make this post using Forever21 items only.
And I say, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. :>


THIS YEAR'S TOP 5 COLORS:

1. MINT 

Twill Skinny Pants

I love the Mint and Blue play in this smart casual dress! You could pair it with some blue heels to complement the blue accents of the dress:

This Maxi Skirt LOOKS and FEELS breezy. Wear it with sandals or wedges, and you're all set for a relaxing Summer's Day. 


Mock Button-up Top

Pair it with shorts and this could be a nice comfy outfit for going to the mall. And oh! Don't forget the flipflops.

Even when you don't feel like wearing pastel-pink-colored clothes, you can still add a hint of its sweetness to your attire with these accessories:
 






3. PEACH

For me, nothing beats the classic. Nuff said.
Anyways... Oh yes, I super love pumps. And this one's really sweet. 
Kim Platform Pumps

 So there, you could stick with your color and theme, but you could also pair that dress up with this brown stiletto booties to add some edge to the outfit. Kinda matches the belt. I love matching the shoes with the details.

Twill Skinny Pants

You can also sweeten up any outfit with Peach-colored outerwear such as this Tailored Lace Jacket...

4. LAVENDER
Striped Floral Dress
SALE @ $11.83
I'd pair this Floral dress with a white or blush-pink cardigan for a smart yet fun casual look.
Long Sleeve Button-up
$15.80
Asymmetrical Knit Tunic

Acid Wash Skinny Jeans
$29.80
Ooh! I love this pair of Acid Wash jeans! I'd wear this with a nice and bold cropped graphic tee. :>

I think the coolness of the lavender color of this shorts plus that cute carefree ribbon-tie makes this perfect for some nice Summer chillin'.

(Random Fact: My eyes are into yellow stuff lately. I love how it looks so fun and happy)

Scoop Back Dress
$24.80

Gawd, I love this dress! Those fuschia heels made its Sunshiney happy vibe even more bright and vivid! Would definitely look for a yellow dress next time I hit the mall. Oh my, I'm just so in love~

And yes, you could pair a nice yellow dress with fuchsia shoes just like in the photo above.

and here are some yellows for your personal adornment:





It's safe to mix and match these colors together, so have fun doing so (like the Lavender shorts partnered with yellow shoes). You can also pair them up with other bright and bold colors such as you've seen in some of the photos above (like the yellow dress with fuchsia heels).

So, I guess that's it! I hope you liked this post as much as I do. :)
So, have you picked your personal favorites, already?

Lotsa love,
