Say hello to Sorbet Pastels! The pastel shades are having their moment in fashion and who wouldn’t want a taste of summer with these soothing hues? It’s a hassle-free, easy to pair colour trend that will definitely give you some major stand-out moments! From feminine to structured silhouettes, these soft hues go with every style and give a fresh makeover to your everyday wardrobe. Soft, pretty and fun- Sorbet Pastels are the go-to colours for the sunny season (we tried it and loved it)!
Looking to try pastels IRL? Here is how you can wear the soothing hues and ace the style like a boss lady.
1. Monochrome Magic
2. Colour Block like a pro
Pastel Colour-blocking has become a wardrobe staple that is not going out of style anytime soon. The soft shades blend easily when put together in an ensemble. The lines between pastel-hued pieces are more subtle as compared to colour-blocking with bright hues. Our brand stylist says, “If you are thinking of experimenting with the pastel colour blocking for your next virtual conference, try to play within the range of three colours or less in an outfit to avoid any style blunders. The fourth colour will always look too much. Go for simple cuts and details.” For a fun and vibrant look pair a powder pink blazer with soft blue lounge pants, and a cream shirt. Let the colours of your outfit do all the talking, opt for minimal makeup and jewelry to balance the look.
3. Cotton Candy Summers are back
We love everything about the blissful summers- the sunshine, the bloomed flowers and the beautiful colours of the sky. Match the beautiful surroundings with the nostalgic and fun pairing of cotton candy colours. The cotton candy inspired pastel layers will not only soothe your mind and soul but also take you on a virtual vacation. Soft pinks and blues may sound understated, but when styled in the right way, this colour pairing can be as eye-catching as a bright pop of colour. Wear a sky blue cotton shirt beneath a breezy cotton rogue pink dress for casual comfort while working from home. Complement the look with some chunky sneakers and minimal studs (also don’t forget your rose-tinted glasses to get some vacay-vibes).
4. The Subtle Art of Neutrals
If you are aiming to look sophisticated and elegant for your ‘Monday meeting’, pair pastel pieces with neutral tones. Adding a neutral colour will balance the whole look. Our stylist recommends pairing grey cropped trousers with a watercolour multi-colour shirt, keeping it elegant with a touch of playfulness. Since the shirt has multiple colours, pairing it with neutral olive green pants will make it pop. Complete the look with a classic low bun and dewy makeup. We are surely making some space for the sorbet pastels in our WFH closet, are you too?
5. Play Up The Contrast
Pairing colours can either make or break an outfit. It’s only natural to feel a little overwhelmed while experimenting with contrasting hues, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to plain old blacks and whites. So if you are a risk-taker- be it at work or with your wardrobe choices, this colour pairing is definitely for you! Pair contrasting sorbet pastel hues to add an extra oomph-factor to your ensemble. Wear a powder pink power suit with a muted pistachio cross peplum top for a lively outfit that goes beyond your 9-5 wardrobe.
