Lavender, peach, mint green, dusty rose. This year, one of the hottest Spring trends is Pastels and as with many trends, some women aren’t sure how to incorporate them into their existing wardrobe. The great thing about a trend is that just because you adopt it, it doesn’t mean that you have to go whole hog. There’s no reason why you can’t incorporate it here and there – no one said you to have to wear it head to toe. If you’re interested in giving Pastels a go this Spring but not sure how best to go about it, here are 3 ways to incorporate them into your wardrobe – without looking like an Easter Egg (not that there’s anything wrong…

Bring on the Bootay!

Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Beyonce. Know where I’m going with this? That’s right – these ladies have got some serious booty going on.

Some women are built in a way that defining their waist makes their body appear visually less appealing (proportionately speaking). I’ll use myself as an example. I have a very long rise (the area between the waist and the crotch), making my torso longer than it should be and my legs shorter than they should be (based on ideal vertical…
