Outfit Post: How to style Pastel Pink - Pantone Colour of the Year 2016

Whilst I consider soft hues and pastel shades the classic spring staple, I can’t see why I should not be able to incorporate it into my winter wardrobe. So in today’s outfit post, I have tried to embrace three Pantone colours of  2016: Rose Quartz, Serenity (blue) and Lilac Grey.

Now, let’s talk about winter pastel pink that took us all by surprised and swept us of our feet. At least it did to me. I can’t recall any other colour that could cause so much controversy as pink does. I used to swear I would never touch this colour and now, when I’m older I just can’t get enough! And I know I’m not the only one, am I? I am looking at you!

When styling this soft pastel pink look, I went for neutral crispy white top to create the perfect colour blocking combination. The almost cotton candy shade of this coat is soft and romantic and when styling it with the grey and blue, the look I ended up with was almost etheral. I went for minimalism with this outfit and by mixing it with grey and white shades, I managed to avoid the “too-sweet-too-pale” appearance. Combining pastel colours with neutral ones helped to balance the girly nature of pastels, especially pastel pink.

How to style pastel pink
If you want to create soft and yet bold look, why don’t you pair few more pastel colours together?  Pastel pink always goes well with pastel blue shades. As you can see from my look, I like to keep my looks modern, simple and sleek so I tend to pair it with white and grey staples.

To style pastel shades in winter can get a bit tricky. To achieve more grown up look during these cold months, go for minimalism, colour blocking and even add some faux fur. Remember, less is more. Pairing it with dark colours is also recommended, although I wanted to go for more soft and feminine look.

So what do you think about mixing these three pastel shades – the Pantone colours of the 2016? I know I’m completely smitten by their sweet character.

    I usually avoid pastel shades but you carry them off well. I agree in sticking to sleek lines with minimal fuss. Loving the grey top and loafers!

    Stumbled upon your blog via Twitter. Bought a pink coat similar to this just the other day & have been wondering how to style it & this look is perfect for me, I'm pretty much a jeans & top kinda girl & was worried how it would look with my coat but this shows it can be pulled off! Thank you.
