How do I combine pastel colours?
Combining shades of pastel is rather easy, as their nuances always appear discreet and soft. But you always have to be careful that the look doesn’t become too boring.
► Combined with white: posh
A classic combination is definitely pastel with white: a pair of white Marlene trousers, a pistachio kitty bow blouse, a rosé-coloured lace dress with a white blazer or a cappuccino-coloured jumpsuit with a white cashmere cardigan – nothing could be posher and fresher.
► Combined with original colours: skilled
It’s getting ever so interesting if you combine pastel colours with their clear original colour: mint green or pistachio with green, dusky pink or peach with red, baby blue or icy blue with blue, vanilla or lemon with yellow, cappuccino or cream with brown. Of course, you have to be a little daring for these kinds of combinations, but it’s still quite easy to do because you can’t actually do anything wrong. The result is an all-the-rage fashion style that takes away the sweet and childish touch from pastel colours.
► Combined with dark colours: edgy
In many wardrobes, dark colours are predominant. But especially in the beginning of spring or summer, even the biggest fan of grey and black feels the urge to add a splash of colour to her life. No problem, as the fresh pastel shades are the perfect match for dark colours like black, and even better for nuances of grey. The contrast takes away the sweet and childish touch from the pastel colours and adds a little boldness to the look. Hence, the rough black leather jacket starts an exciting affair with the apricot dress and the rosé-coloured knit sweater lives in perfect harmony with a pair of stone grey ripped jeans.
