Why choose pastel colour clothes for your wardrobe?
Now is the time to embrace these bright, illuminating powdery pastels that boost our mood all year round. Think ice cream, cotton candy, subdued neon, highlighter colours. These happy hues enhance our saccharine colour palette.
All of which brings fun and hope back into our lives. As stylist Erica Cloud suggested – cerulean sky blue is the epitome of a lady, if not “the portrait of a lady.”
This season, we choose pastel outfits not just for uplifting our spirit. From romantic to elegant and sophisticated, these beautiful pastel clothes in our wardrobe could be both, practical and versatile. Let’s say you are planning to travel. Having pastel looks in your collection can make it very easy to pack for both, cooler and warmer weather because it’s easy to mix and match your outfits.
how did pastel outfits originate?
Interestingly, pastel colours for fashion come from the art world. Thanks to the German-born artist Hans Holbein the Younger (1497/8-1543) who invented and manufactured pastels. We can now enjoy these beautiful and sophisticated shades. Then, he moved to London and influenced the ‘crayon painting’. This is how pastels were initially called in 16th century, Northern Renaissance.
Soon enough, artists such as Daniel Garden, John Russel, Francis Cotes, Benedetto Lotti, and numerous others noticed the collectable, style staple pastels serve. Later, Pantone, filmmakers, fashion and interior designers, and even advertisers took notes on this timeless trend, if not a cyclical one.
Pastel outfits withstood the test of time and appeared a decade after decade. They are a stellar pop of colour to utilise through oversized coats combined with form-fitting tops to soft colours paired with intense ones.
How to style pastel colour outfits?
When it comes to incorporating pastel clothing into your wardrobe, there are so many variables to consider. From organza volume to feminine florals, lace or graphic prints to name a few. All these options could make us elegantly stand out in a crowd.
With that, we elevate grace and poise. Just like Audrey Hepburn or Princess Diana you’ll feel ladylike. Maeve Reilly, Hailey Beiber’s stylist, makes sure she emulates that style daily as well by eloquently adding a pop of colour here and there, through a bag or a hat.
Pastel colours are elegant and sophisticated, and they can be worn for both casual and formal occasions. When styling pastel outfits, it is important to keep the overall look balanced.
One way to do this is to pair a light-coloured top with a darker bottom, or vice versa. Another option is to mix and match different shades of the same colour. For example, you could combine a pale pink blouse with a slightly darker skirt.
Pastel colours can also be used to create contrast. For example, you could pair a pastel top with a white bottom to create a clean and fresh look.
Whatever style you choose, make sure you accessorise your outfit with jewellery or other elegant accessories to add a touch of glamour. With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to create chic and stylish pastel outfits that are perfect for any occasion.

Monochrome outfits have been gaining popularity in recent years as more and more people are drawn to the sleek and minimalist aesthetic. But what exactly is monochrome? And how can you pull off the look without looking like you’re trying too hard?
Monochrome simply means wearing one colour from head to toe. This doesn’t mean your outfit has to be boring – there are lots of ways to mix and match different shades and textures of the same coloUr to create an interesting and unique look.
