As Easter is upon us in a couple of weeks, we’re taking a cue from this joyous holiday’s color palette, which consists of beautiful . Just in time for Spring, these light colors range from pink, purple, green, yellow, and blue. Pastel, which is defined as a soft and delicate shade of color, is airy and bright like the warm weather during this time of year. As we push back our dark-colored clothes worn in the winter to the back of our closet, we happily welcome uplifting clothes to brighten up our wardrobe and mood.
Wearing and decorating with pastel colors on Easter isn’t something new. These colors were actually first introduced by Pope Innocent III in 1198 as symbols from the Song of Solomon in the Old Testament. For example, purple symbolizes sorrow, which reflects Jesus’s atonement and suffering before he was resurrected. It’s a good thing these colors are symbolic of Easter because they make the perfect palette for flowers, greenery, and other outdoor decorations. With white (symbolizing purity) Easter bunnies all around and different color Easter eggs surrounding them, these hues are the perfect backdrop for a celebration with family and friends.
As we buy ornaments and other goodies to spruce up our homes, we’ll also be thinking of what to wear on Sunday, April 17th.
