Desi girls are notorious for their love of bold and bright colours. But, as much as we worship a heavy, in-your-face mix of colours, there's a small part of us that deviates towards the pastel palette. Spring pastels were a big winner for many designers. Their use of these soft hues in power clothing, sarees and basics were not missed by our keen eyes.
These sombre, powdery hues not only transcend seasons by looking right at home with winter, spring and summer but they also look totally chic in a variety of our favourite fabrics (hint: satin!). This versatile colour can be taken from a summer afternoon lunch to a boozy formal event in the evening. We found ways in which some of our favourite stars are doing it which will give you fab OOTD ideas for a pastel-filled summer!
Power suits are one of the best ways to do pastel. The plush suiting fabric combined with the muted delicate hues results in an ensemble fit for a stylish formal event. We are loving Twinkle Khanna’s fruity and youthful pastel mix in this suit she recently wore at an event!
POPxo Recommends: Mango Linen Jacket (Rs 7,990)
The ice cream-coloured pastels in parma violet, delicate lemon, baby pink, pale coral and pistachio have been some of the hottest trends for the season. Clothes that look like a tasty dessert, but can’t be eaten! Mix and match your pastel separates to look as glamorous like Kangana does!
POPxo Recommends: Linen-blend Suit Trousers (Rs 2,299)
One of the reasons we are championing for pastels to become your top priority this season is because of the fact that they look like a million bucks when combined with fancy ethnics, without trying too hard! Pastel sarees are a way to go if you were planning on finally buying a saree but never could due to fear of overdoing it.
POPxo Recommends: Pure Silk Mulberry Tussar Saree (Rs 8,999)
When combined with standout embroidery and embellishments, pastels are a shaadi style option for the modern desi girl at her best. A delicious contrast, the fine pastels paired with rich detailing and textures can be a summer wedding look you will hit a home run with!
POPxo Recommends: Pastel Blue Anarkali Khari Printed Suit Set (Rs 2,099)
Another fact that cement pastels as a summer essential are the trendy off-duty looks you can pull off with the colours. A big requisite for summer fashion are warm tones that are easy on the eyes, a feat that is easily achieved with a dash of pastels in your daily casuals.
POPxo Recommends: Forever 21 Lavender Solid Playsuit (Rs 1,599)
There's no denying that pastels are a fashionista's best friend when it comes to gearing for a sweltering summer, we have already curated our wishlist, have you?
