Crushing on Wedgwood #FashionFriday

Pastels are in this spring, and one of my favorite color trends right now is Wedgwood. I’ve long been a fan of this elegant English china, but now we can wear it! I love the innocent sophistication of this delicate hue.

Style Tips for Wearing Wedgwood {from InStyle Magazine}

1. Mix feminine details, like lace or ruffles, with structured silhouettes to keep it from looking too precious.

I love the structure of this lace sheath by Matty M at Nordstrom.

2. A wedgwood sheath or jacket with white slacks make for a sharp office look this season.

I almost wish I worked in an office so I could wear this! (Keyword: almost.)

3. Wear wedgwood with light shades such as tan, seafoam green, lilac or white.

(See #2) Or for a more modern look . . . try it this way!

4. For a bolder statement, wear wedgwood with gunmetal accents, royal blue or even ruby.


This is the dress they pictured in the InStyle article. I googled for it to show you because honestly, I can’t quite see myself pairing ruby and wedgwood in an ordinary outfit. I’m too much of a plain jane. Although I do love the idea of pairing it with another neutral – such as the seafoam green pumps above.

5. (my tip) Finally, as with any trend, I always say that if you’re unsure and just want to dip a baby toe into the water, try it out with an inexpensive accessory.
