Pastel Candy (How to Wear Pastel and Mix it)

Holla Creamers
Do you love pastel colored? I do! These soft colors are so sweet and girlish, right? From milk caramel, velvety peach, baby pink, powdery mint, turquoise, banana, lavender, pale green, beige, creamy orange, peach, and baby blue. Just like cotton candy!
This time, I'll share some tips about my fashion style, yes its mix pastel colored! Not only two pastel colored, but three. They are lavender, turquoise, and baby pink.
 
I rarely wear pastel but in fact I’ve three or four pastel colored pants >_<, since I joined Hijapedia OOTD Challenge, and the last day theme is pastel, I was a bit confused, then I messed my wardrobe to get what I want to wear. And Tada~~ I found some pastel scarfs & pastel pants to wear.
I was going to mix only lavender and turquoise colors, or baby pink and lavender colors. But then the idea came to layer up them all.
I did some DIY and make over my outfit.
I actually use two scarfs for the layer XD and it became a chic layer top, hehe.
Do you have some long skirts and think its old enough that you want to cut it into midi or short skirt? Well, don’t cut it, you can roll up the skirt and makes it short, just like me! I roll up my turquoise long skirt to asymmetric skirt ^^ the idea goes to my cousin, Dini!
The flower crown is made by me too.

If you have some pastel clothes and still wondering with which colors you can combine, I think these tips will help you :D

1: How to start

Make sure you are confident enough to wear pastel clothes, if not, let’s start with small thing like pastel clutch, hat, or shoes in candy color.

2: Accessories

Accessories are so important if you only choose one pastel colored clothing, because the pastel colored itself looks awesome without too many accessories. Pick the pastel colored accessories that won’t distract your clothing. Grey color will make a pretty complement.

As for me, since I mixed three pastels colored, I didn’t use any accessories -only the flower crown-.

3: Blocking Color

I suggested not mixing pastel colored (like peach or lavender) with strong color like black, red, and yellow. It could be a great color block or failed mix. Pastels colored are best mixed with each other palette. I think, darker on the bottom and lighter on top with two (or three) clothes in the same color family.

Pastel color-block will not work with clothes featuring too complicated cuts. Pairing pastel colored pants with white tee or grey sweater is a nice try too. Sometimes I wear my baby pink pants with them.

♥ 4: Make Up

Keep your hijab/hair and makeup simple. Since pastel colored is already soft and sweet. A simple make up will give fresh look. A cute pastel nail polish will make you even sweet.


Which tips are you planning to  use? What are some of your tips on how to wear pastels that sweet, but not too sweet?

 I did a quick photoshoot for the challenge with my friend (also neighbor) yesterday. And here they are ^^

 
Holla Creamers! Kali ini bakal bikin post dua bahasa (berhubung ada waktu senggang)

Aku mau ngeshare beberapa tips fashion, yep, its mix the pastel! Gak cuma dua warna pastel yang di-mix, tapi tiga, lavender, turquoise, dan baby pink.
Aku lumayan jarang make warna pastel, padahal aku punya tiga sampe empat celana pastel >_< dan seminggu ini, aku iseng ikutan Hijapedia OOTD Challenge, tema untuk hari terakhir kemaren pastel. Aku sempat bingung mau make apa, karena aku gak punya stock foto OOTD yang pure pastel, sampe akhirnya ngobrak-abrik wardrobe-ku, akhirnya nemu yang mau aku pake. Tada~~ I found some pastel scarfs & pastel pants to wear.
Awalnya aku Cuma mau nge-mix dua warna, lavender dan turquoise, atau baby pink dan lavender. Eh akhirnya aku malah gabungin ketiganya dan dibikin berlayer.
I did some DIY and make over my outfit.
 Sebenarnya, untuk atasan berlayer yang aku pake itu, dua scarf segiempat yang dililit-lilit, hehe
Do you have some long skirts and think its old enough that you want to cut it into midi or short skirt? Well, don’t cut it, you can roll up the skirt and makes it short, just like me! Sebenarnya rok yang aku pake itu, rok panjang, terus aku gulung di bagian depan supaya jadi asimetris, ini semua idenya sepupuku, Dini!
The flower crown is made by me too. Tapi sebenarnya belum selesai

If you have some pastel clothes and still wondering with which colors you can combine, I think these tips will help you :D
1: How to start
Pastiin kalo emang pede make warna pastel, secara warna pastel cukup terang dan mencolok, kalo belum pede, bisa pake aksesoris pastel dulu kaya clutch, hat, or shoes in candy color.
2: Accessories
Aksesoris bener-bener penting kalo kita cuma make satu warna pastel, karena warna pastel sendiri udah awesome banget tanpa perlu tambahan. Pilih warna aksesoris yang gak terlalu jauh dengan warna pastel pakaian kita. Warna abu-abu bisa bikin tambah menarik outfit kita juga.
Untuk outfitku kali ini, karena aku udah nge-mix tiga warna pastel, aku gak make aksesoris apa-apa kecuali flower crownku.
3: Blocking Color
Aku saranin untuk gak nge-mix warna pastel seperti peach atau lavender dengan warna hitam, merah, dan kuning. Sebenarnya fifty-fifty, bisa jadi great color block tapi juga bisa failed banget, tergantung outfit yang di-mix lagi. Warna pastel sebenarnya lebih pas di-mix dengan warna pastel juga. Bagian bawah lebih gelap daripada bagian atas yang lebih terang lebih pas.
Warna pastel yang di-mix lebih cocok sama outfit yang simple tanpa terlalu banyak cut atau pattern. Nge-mix pastel pants sama white tee atau grey sweater juga nice try banget, sometimes I wear my baby pink pants with them.
♥ 4: Make Up
Hijab/Model rambut dan make up-nya cukup yang simpel, karena warna pastel sendiri udah soft dan sweet banget. Make up yang simpel bikin fresh kok. A cute pastel nail polish will make you even sweet.

Sekian tips yang bisa di share, kalo ada tips lain bisa saling berbagi disini.


 I don't think it will look to much because I layer up my outfit with grey over sized sweater.
 Another unfinished flower crown >_<
 My favorite pastel case which I bought in Mecca last March, its only 40k So cheap, yeay!
 As I said in my previous post, I'm going to make a review about my current favorite writer and book, The Fault In Our Stars. I have already finished the translated book, then my brother bought me the original version in Semarang XD OMG thanks brotha! But, I haven't finished it, and I won't make a review before I finished it.
