Pastel Power

Wayyy too long since I blogged last, and believe me, I didn’t like it anymore than you did! Excuse my Only24HoursADay kind of life, considering that I have a lot of college to squeeze in that (times like this I wish I were a blood sucking Vampire, really).

So this (much awaited?) post is all about pastels. The power of light-bright shades has been underestimated for way too long. So the look today is all about that! Its pretty. Its perfect. Its peach, the most elegant of them all.

With this look I went all sober, leaving out every trail of accessories apart from the usual bling I have around my two fingers. The combination of peach and white is a forever-classic one, that can be replicated in different styles with much ease.

However, here I’ve mixed it with a currently very popular 70’s trend making a comeback, the palazzos (also seen in the Hue & I post and very much available at Preciosa Fashion House) along with a very simple, plain white tank top. The idea behind leaving out the accessories is to display the very chic, elegant look that the combination of these two colours gives birth to. A pair of tall heels (you don’t ever need a reason to wear those) would be a perfect addition to the family, and a great way to add height to that enormous-leg look. If you want to add some more bling or accessories in an outfit like this, add up a long neck piece or a stack of gold bangles/bracelets.

Pastels go great with white. But colours like mint green, baby pink or even lemon yellow, also look great with dark colours. A dark grey with a baby pink is one of my own personal favourite colour combinations, while I also think a navy blue would not look any less appealing when teamed with a mint green. Don’t forget less used shades like lavender, ice blue or soft orange. After all, experimenting is the way to go!

Remember, the shape of such pants are not in favour of those who have broad hips, for the high-waist length will only highlight the width of the area between your waist and thighs (and really, who needs magnifying glass of an outfit?!). On the other hand, people who are on the thin and skinny side should wear a shape like this with something that hugs their upper body, thus, putting a balance between the flowy look and the body-hugging one.
