– COLLAB POST –
I honestly have a love-hate relationship with pastels. One of the disadvantages (but sometimes, advantage) of having a petite height is that people always mistake me for being a child. “Are you really 19 years old?” and “You look like you’re 12” are just some of the many common lines thrown at me. I’ve actually grown accustomed to them and today, I’m just indifferent. They don’t affect me anymore.
However, the thing is making a mistake in wearing too many pastels will make you look like so childish. But a style without some pop of pastel colors will also look so blunt and boring.
That is why, in this blog post, as I have promised in my previous one, I am sharing some tips in rocking your pastels without under- or overdoing it.
1. Wear monochromatic pastels.
These things do not overwhelm your style. It’s just as simple as it is but with the right combination of colors, you’ll actually look more sophisticated and styled.
2. Stick to only 1-3 pastel pieces.
This is a personal preference but I believe it goes a long way. One is the minimum and three is the maximum pastel color/s that you should consider in your outfit. I know it’s fun to dress up and wear lots of colors to make you stand out but sometimes, too many colors don’t look nice to the eyes. Also, you don’t want to look like a walking rainbow, right?
3. Wear pastels with neutrals.
Black, white, and beige will make your look more classic and expensive. Also, that pastel color will stand out and serve as your statement piece.
Pastel or not, accessories are must-haves for your OOTDs. In wearing pastels, make sure not to pick accessories that will make you look overdressed. Just keep it simple with a bangle or a statement earrings and that’s it. There’s no need to over-accessorize.
For this post, I collaborated with the very lovely Melissa Patino of the blog, Melissa the Mermaid, a style and travel blog that’s going to give you all the Little Mermaid feels. If you love pastels so much, Mel surely does as much. Give her site a click and follow her on her social media sites.
