Pastels can be a hard outfit to pull off: you don’t want to look to easter-y, but once you can get it right, it looks super-chic and girly. Plus, you’ll be easy to spot in a sea of blacks and blues!
I’ve found that the easiest way to wear pastels is to mix textures (something I seem to like doing a lot!). Again, I love incorporating silk into my summer outfits, since it’s so lightweight and easy to wear.
Obviously, I’m one of those vegans who wears silk and eats honey– some of you might get offended, but to be 100% honest, I just don’t care about the welfare of bugs. So sting me! (but please don’t!!)
It might ease your mind a bit if I told you my silk top was actually thrifted from Goodwill… at least I’m recycling!
Anyway, back to the outfit. Since pastels are already quite girly and feminine by nature, it’s a great time to incorporate some edgy, statement jewelry pieces to offset that feminine energy. It’s all a delicate, fashionable balance!
