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.
