LOOKBOOK | Baby colors
Baby pink. Baby blue. They're fairly common references to lighter, pastel shades of pink and blue. But they aren't just for babies, are they? I mean, I also like wearing them on occasion. Pastels are easy on the eye, inoffensive, and refreshing.
Pairing pastels with darker colors always works in clothing as long as the colors are complementing each other, like pastel yellow and brown, or mint green and navy. It's like a fail-safe bet each time. But then we often forget that pastel on pastel, or at least pastel on a similarly lighter shade, also works. Just look at them babies!
Here I tried a light pink shirt with blue pants. I've done the pink shirt and blue pants combo many times over but the blue was never this light. If you'll notice the pants, however, they're still in a hue that's darker than the shirt. Yes, there should still be some contrast when wearing pastel on pastel, or pastel with something that's also in a light color.
And in keeping with the lighter hues, I wore camel-colored shoes. That my belt was in a darker shade of brown doesn't really matter here.
So what do you guys think?
Shirt (Cotton On); pants (Topman); shoes (Flying Dutchman); fabric cufflinks (Tieline).
