Up the glam game this summer with the eye-gripping pastel tones. The earthy shades and soothing colors are not restricted to nursery rooms anymore instead they transcend the fashion norms in the most revitalizing way ever.
From preppy and edgy to sporty or glam, pastels aka chalky colors can be incorporated in any kind of outfit and can be worn by anyone as a fashion statement. The best thing is their versatility. Pastel colors are best to be worn during the day, as they replicate the sunlight; they have a light feel to them and are mostly suited for casual or office outfits, as well as for relaxed parties and other casual settings.
From soft blues to sorbet pinks, wearing pastels is a great way to offer any look lightness, warmth and elegance. Opting for pastels? Here’s your ready guide:
Keep it minimalistic: Going head to toe pastel can look too sweet to the eyes. Always break the monotony by adding either a neutral color or basic beige or nude.
Pastel Color Blocking: Pastel goes perfectly with another pastel color. A mint green dress looks stunning in a bubblegum pink peep toes, for a Sunday brunch with your girlfriends.
Pastel Colors with Whites and Blacks: You can never make a mistake wearing pastel colors either with white or black pieces, or matching them both with black and white. Pair a black dress with mint green heels and sling bag, for an effortless look.
Accessorize with Pastels: Pastel shoes look amazing in combination with white pants or a light colored dress. You can also wear pastel colored shoes with shorts and skirts in much softer shades.
Gender neutral: Pastels can be worn by both men and women. Pastel shade brogues look classy when styled with casual shirts and trousers.
