Crushing on Pastels

Pastels are a welcome change to signal the start of a new (hopefully) warmer season. There is something about sherbet-colored hues that inspires creative and energetic mood. Pastel is a happy hue for me. When I want to feel good and warm, I reach out to any pastel shade in my wardrobe and it does the trick every single time. Whether or not you feel the same way, you cannot deny that soft hues are a classic spring/summer staple. It might look trendy but it has a timeless appeal that will enable you to wear your pastel pieces year after year.

So... how do you wear pastel? My favorite way is with mixed pastels, just like I had done here. I take more than one pastel piece and wear them together. In this case, the blush top, mint watch and the powder blue tote complement each other for a soft yet bold look. 

If you want something more bold than my take on pastels, you can go monochrome with your outfit. You can wear the same color palette together. My favorite idea is to wear a risque crop top with a wide leg pant or high waisted pencil skirt.

If you want to stay on the classic route, though, you can also get some hint with my look today: wear it with neutrals. In this case, I opted for a black ripped denim jeans to go with my blush top and a neutral toned pumps. This will highlight the pastel hues and make them more noticeable.

Lastly, you can pair pastels with brights (just like I've done here too with a pair of bright earrings). This will provide a contrast by adding edge to the soft pastels.

What is your favorite way to wear pastel?

  9. I'm with you on the mixed pastels! They look great together. I think it's similar to wearing mixed brights together where the intensity of the hues match, even if the shades themselves don't. I have spied so many cute tassel earring lately and yours are adorable! I love the orangey-red.
