PASTEL IS THE NEW BLACK

By  |  0 Comments

Winter fashion is always greeted with a combination of dark colors and earthly-toned vibes. This season is getting a light makeover…we’re painting our style pastel and we’re inviting you to do the same; right along with us.

Plus-Model Ashely Graham was spotted in a mixed-sequin J. Mendel pastel pink and black cocktail dress  that totally blew us off our feet.

To kick off,  our style commitment to pastel- we’ve teamed up with luxe vegan leather handbag company- Eighty Eight handbags to sponsor a cute plush-pastel-pink multi-purpose handbag- which can be worn as a clutch or arm-bag. This handbag is available in an assortment of colors. *Giveaway color: Pink.

We’re totally ditching everyday dark garb for something that’s almost equally style-satisfying. We’re talking about soft pinks, greens, blues, lavender- everything that screams pastel; softly.

“Black is one of my favorite colors- I wear it practically every day- and NEVER get tired of it. I’ve always admired the pink-goth girls. You know the ones that traded all black for all pink-for their daily style rituals.”  – Selina Weekes

THREE TIPS TO ROCKING PASTEL

  1. Find what pastel shade works best for you while finding the silhouette in that color for your body type.

  2. Pick pieces with a classic or trendy cut or pieces that are of good quality and fabric- otherwise your look can look dated.

  3. When all else fails- pastel looks best against denim. 

In general, people typically round up pastel colors during the warmer seasons. We wondered how amazing Winter would be if it was styled in pastel. Whether it be pastel accents or an aggressive pastel flex, we’re totally deeming pastel as the NEW BLACK and we’re inviting you to take part in this style madness. We’ll be posting your photos dripped in pastel, every day on Instagram up through February.
