Amelie, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Far from Heaven, and more are among the films that have made us fall in love with new fashionable dresses along with their storylines. Soft colours like pinks, lavender, ivory, and powder blue became a growing obsession among our fashion choices as a result of our favourite ladies on-screen wearing bright and vibrantly coloured summer dresses.
In the year 2021, there hasn't been much of a shift in people's views toward pastels. The fan fervour for these pale, calming tints returns as the seasons shift, like a much-needed cool breeze on a humid summer afternoon! These subtle and sombre styles are great for the fancy new outfit we've been eyeing for our upcoming exotic vacation as well as a casual day out on the town. Traveling with a pastel wardrobe is a dream come true; they're fun to work with, give off a natural glow, and have a fresh vibe to them.
So, without further ado, let's look at how you can fall in love with a new colour palette while enduring the sun. We've put together three timeless ways to slay the pastel trend this summer.
- Go Monochrome: Begin by sticking to a single colour for your entire ensemble. You can go for a solid colour look from head to toe by choosing a subdued hue like mints or turquoise. Do not worry; it won't be too daunting. If you want to be a little bolder, layer a lighter colour over a darker one. Second, pick a style that is suitable for your body shape. Keep the outfit simple by wearing a printed A-line dress, a fit-and-flare dress, or a midi shirt dress, and matching it with footwear and accessories in contrasting colours.
- Play with Prints & Patterns: Prints and patterns give a quirky edge to an ensemble, from minimalistic prints like paisley and polka to bold ones like geometric abstracts and resort stripes. Floral prints are a girl's best friend, and there's a lot to discover, from garments with roses or lilacs to real satin flowers lying on top of the fabric. A printed skirt or jacket worn over a printed blouse will easily elevate your vacation ensemble. Look for soft sheers, light glitter, and sun-kissed metallics when selecting the fabric, as they all pay homage to the enchanting Spring-Summer season.
- Sum up Pastels & Neutrals: When it comes to mixing classics, there's no way to go wrong. For a business conference, neutral colours such as beige, nudes, and whites are the best bet. Adding a touch of colour to your outfit with subtle tonal blends is a perfect way to look trendy and fashionable. For example, a blush pink or velvety peach top or kurta will look great with beige, dove grey, or pure white bottom wear. You can go all out and mix and match various hues, in addition to matching pastels with neutrals or prints. Pastels mixed with pastels is a look that takes a little more thought, but a well-put-together ensemble may create a truly ethereal statement.
So ladies get ready for the summer and be no more afraid of the scorching sun!
