Pastels for a Soft, Sultry Spring look

“There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter.” – The Mad Hatter

THE INSPIRATION for this shoot was mixing pastels with the countryside. A little like the tones from the new Alice In Wonderland Movie.

The key to pulling off the perfect pastel ensemble is to make sure your entire outfit isn’t too soft.

FOR EXAMPLE Cassie decided to toughen up her very feminine look by pairing a black bra with brown leather boots, to maintain an edge and not become too much of a “marsh mellow.”

Remember, not matching colors is in this season! A perfect way to maintain that ideal “I didn’t try that hard,” look is incorporating mix matched hues to your basics in the outfit. Cassie’s black bra is a subtle mismatch, not an accessory that defines her entire outfit. Instead, it simply accents it to the perfect urban cool nude pastel look.

My outfit was a little different than Cassie’s…

Instead of mis-matching, I tried to use similar hues that were slightly off tint, to  give an edgier appearance of “not trying.” By incorporating destroyed denim in the same pastel color as the top, the entire look remained urban. I naturally do not dress feminine, so I am always excited to find girly trends and make them more urban! However, remember, wearing two exact colors in the same fabric – not desirable. Make sure there is a definite texture change between the two pieces, if wanting to go similar in color. Lastly, to add a hint of color, I paired my outfit with some leather brown gladiator heels.
