How To Wear Pastels

It’s never like me to jump out of my comforts zone and try brighter shades for spring and summer but I’ve made the conscious effort to ditch the neutral muted tones and switch it up this season.

Outfit Details: Top: Missguided, Bag: Marc.b*, Skirt: Lavish Alice(similar), Sandals: Keen*, Watch: Juicy Couture, Choker: Lamoda

 

Pastels are brilliant for adding to your wardrobe to compliment neutral pieces or to colour block by mixing and matching shades like I’ve done above with the soft peach pink bodysuit from Missguided and pretty mint blue skirt from Lavish Alice. These pieces make for perfect staples this season for their versatility and easy to wear design! They go with everything and mixing these shades together gives a nice soft, romantic feel to the overall outfit. This outfit isn’t overly feminine and still keeps within the theme for a softer approach and the colours compliment each other so well. I did include a touch of black to give the outfit more character and to divert away from the all pastel approach and give the outfit a more edgy appeal. The black choker is the perfect accessory this season for playing around with and adding to low cut tops or v-neck dresses.

 

The sandals are a new edition to my wardrobe and make for the perfect holiday staple with the breathable Keen Uneek design that not only looks stylish but it’s super comfortable and one of my favourite pairs of flat sandals for the warmer months. The most important thing when it comes to wearing pastels is to keep the overall outfit minimal and that’s why I’ve gone with this cute mini mint blue cross body bag from Marc.b to add a nice touch of elegance to the outfit but still, keep it simple and dainty. Another accessory I’m loving at the moment is my Jetsetter jelly watch from Juicy Couture with the cute toucan design for summer. It’s mixed with a range of pretty pastels from purples, blues and pinks. You can’t really go wrong mixing pastel shades with white and black for a modern, polished look.

 

What’s your thoughts on the pastel trend this season?

    I usually do not wear pastels because they can be too sugary sweet and girly for me, but I like how you styled them with a modern and cool edge.

      Thanks T and I totally get you! I don’t like the pastels being to over powering and girly so wanted to add in some black to tone it down slightly 🙂 x

    Thanks Jessica and red hair can be a struggle sometimes as it limits you but gradually I’ve been finding out it doesn’t much because I used to love wearing bright red but stopped wearing it for years since changing my hair colour and felt sad but recently bought a top and absolutely love it and it doesn’t clash with my hair :’D x

    I love the combination of the top of skirt but I would have worn other shoes, which would have matched better.

    enjoy your Sunday evening!

      Thanks Vicky and your totally right about the shoes! I think heels would have been better to add some height but loved these sandals with the outfit too but they do look different to anything I’d normally wear with the breathable design! X

    I definitely need to follow in your pastel testing footsteps, I think I need to step out of my ‘oh so neutral’ colour palette :’)
