Strappy tops and vest tops are frequently seen throughout these seasons what with the warmer weather coming in. Pastel pinks and blues are great colours for tops and can be easily contrasted against plain white or ivory blazers and cardigans. Short sleeve blouses are beautiful tops to wear especially in pastel tones. They are bright yet subtle enough to bring out stunning pale skin tones and with button up fastenings and added lace you do not need much more decoration to make these tops stand out. Extra-long blouses make for different silhouettes and can also be used over an tank or vest top for added layers and volume. via.
Pastel Dresses Trends
Knee length pastel coloured shirt dresses which have capped or short sleeves are every fashionistas summer must have. These are great for waist definition as they are shaped and can be accessorised with a small belt. If shirt dresses are not your style why not choose a gorgeous floor length maxi? These are such a popular choice for summer dresses that they are available in a wide range of beautiful pastel shades and stunning pastel patterns. Purples, blues and yellows are common shades seen for maxi dresses. via.
Pastel shades are also viable when it comes to skirts, skinny jeans and shorts. Chambray is a great choice of colour and fabric as it will easily match any shade of pastel. Bear this in mind when choosing a top to go with your pastel jeans or shorts. Lilac, butterscotch, mint and pale blue are shades that work with any style bottoms including skinnies, shorts and three-quarter peddle-pushers. Have a go at mix and matching your own pastel colours and see what looks you can create.
Footwear and Accessories to Wear with Pastel outfits
Pastel colours are not just limited to tops, dresses and trousers; they are also seen in jewellery such as rings, hair clips, necklaces, bracelets and anklets. Why not accessorise your outfit by including some of these items? Pastel floral rings are frequently seen and break up colour nicely. Necklaces, bracelets and anklets can have small pastel toned gems which add twinkles of colour around the body which may otherwise seem boring.
Summer footwear suitable for pastel outfits include low top sneakers, boat shoes and flip flops all the way to heeled peep toes and T-Strap pumps. Footwear should ideally be in neutral colours such as bronze, gold, beige, brown and cream. These tones will finish off a pastel outfit beautifully without destroying your final look.
