Even with a 100% success rate, fashionistas everywhere avoid this trend in fear of appearing “washed out” or “childish”. Smart Girls, it is time to conquer that fear.

Make it Edgy: For those fearful of looking too girly or even juvenile, style your pastels with denim, menswear-inspired pieces, or plaid. These items will add a bit of a toughness while still remaining feminine.

Prim & Preppy: Try going for a classic look by pairing the pastels of your choice with simple items like a plain button-down or laid back sweater. The resulting look gives timeless pieces a twist.

Monochrome: Take a risk and go for a monochromatic outfit, pick a color and don it from head to toe. Whether you are decked out in lavender or mint green, this outfit is sure to be a show stopper.

 

 

Accessorize: Not quite ready to let pastels take center stage? Accessorize! Bracelets and statement necklaces pop in tones of bubblegum pink and periwinkle yet still allow you to stay well within your comfort zone.
