Basic does not have to mean boring. If you want to wear a plain pastel top, insted of dressing from top-to-toe plain outfit, you can mix up your look with a pair of colorful printed pants that are so huge right now, however you have to make sure that the print colors are still in the same family with your top. So, with this combination you can do a head-to-toe in pastel color hues without going overboard.
If you prefer to create a laidback look, you can just leave your top outside the pants, but if you want a neater look you can always tuck your top into the printed pants. You can also do the half-tuck, which is the perfect option for defining your waist without making it the focal point. If you want the full-tuck, don’t forget to raise your arms overhead to un-tuck just the right amount of fabric for the final touch.
Now let’s move on to footwear. I’d say go for a unique pair like these light pink pumps that boast a striking sophistication. Then, a beige or nude accessories will tone down the whole candy colored outfit while still keeping the fun factor in your whole look. I recommend you to wear a beige cross body bag which is cute and stylish at the same time. This bag can balance out your colorful clothing palette.

Although the pastel colors really exude a feminine vibe, they are also fit for you who have this edgy sensibilites too! You don’t believe me? Let’s talk about the second look then.
While wearing dreamy colors like pastel give you girls the excuse to continue rocking your feminine styles, I say there are specific ways to pull it off in an edgier way. Like for example, to wear it with blazers. For this look, I picked a pale blue blazer. This is a fantastic addition to any wardrobe. It can create a polished look while mantaining the lightness of a spring wardrobe. Yes, pastels will take the heavy edge off sweaters, jackets, and even blazers like the one in the picture.
For the edgy touch, wear this versatile pastel blazer with a white t-shirt and combine it with a navy blue midi skirt. If you think this outfit combination is still a little girly, play with your shoes ad accessories! Loafers are the perfect footwear to give the edgy feelings for this look and complete it with a black leather cross body bag.
See? Even though you are wearing a pastel blazer (which can sometimes be hard to style), with the right combination and by keeping the rest of your outfit basic with a more neutral hue like black, you can easily create an effortlessly edgy-chic look!
So tell me girls, are you going to wear pastel this season? What pastel color would you wear?
