The Modern Girl's Way to Wear Power Pastels

Let’s debunk a fashion myth: Pastel-coloured fashion finds and candy-whipped hues don’t automatically translate to girly girl. There’s a calculated, cool way of wearing parma violets, light blues and sorbet lemon shades that walk the line between feminine and sharp. 

Thanks to our favourite street style icons, we’ve noted that blush and black is a demure and elevated combination to experiment with. While it’s vital to style your colours just so, the real secret to pulling off pastels in a high-fash way is to buy the right key piece in the first place (oh, how the obvious point is often the greatest).


A Love Is Blind

As a general rule of thumb, ruffles are best processed through Alessandro Michele’s eclectic cool vibe, flamingo pink satin is for urbane bomber jackets, and cloudy blues are best realised in brushed suede teamed with a Vetements jumper. Got that? Great. Time to shop.
