Pastels often brings to mind the fresh blooms of spring. Although lovely lilac, buttery yellow, minty greens and so on are the go-to palette come spring time, these candy-like hues never truly go out of style no matter the season. Just as pretty pastels resonate a childlike innocence, its styling options is as far as your imaginations runs.
If you’re new to pastels, experiment by introducing one pastel piece to a neutral look, for a touch of gentleness. Accessories wise, consider a pair of mint green earrings as they are very much in trend right now. Clothing wise, think a white outfit with a blush pink blazer over it.
Alternatively, dress up in head-to-toe pastel for an amazing monochromatic look, just as I did. The key to a monochrome pastel ensemble is all about the colours, textures and details. Have a read at my guide on How To Master Monochromatic Dressing for a more detailed explanation.
Some would talk about how certain pastel tones wouldn’t suit certain certain skin tones. I wouldn’t put much importance on that aspect. Just go with any colour that’s to your liking. It might seem like I’m wearing a baby blue dress because of how matchy-matchy the colours are, but it’s actually a top and skirt combination. You can tell the difference by the slighty texturize cold shoulder blouse and the diamanté details on the skirt. I went all out and piled on light blue jewelleries for a complete monochrome look. Feel free to add pops of colours though.
Extra style tip: if you’re in the mood for a subtly bold creation, try colour-blocking. (yes, in pastels!) Some colour combinations that goes well together are blush pink + powder blue and lilac + butter yellow.
