twinning: sporty pastel dresses

make like leighton meester and try out this trend

by steff yotka

When you think of pastel dresses, the image of a nipped waist, full skirted frock probably comes to mind, the sort of thing you'd see Betty Draper wear on Mad Men. Well, Leighton Meester and Emma Watson are here to prove that pastel can be sporty while still being pretty. 

Meester rocked a sky blue Emporio Armani dress to the Tribeca Film Festival, while Watson opted for a blush Narciso Rodriguez number to another event at the festival. What makes their looks both super cool (and super similar) is the asymmetrical cuts of their outfits and the futuristic silhouettes. 

Try out their punky pastels for yourself with our picks in the slideshow.
