Pastels aren’t just for women and it’s high time you ditched those dated notions. If wearing florals can still make men look macho, then attempting to pull off a delicate colour palette should be the least of your worries. If you ask us, there’s nothing better than a man who can pull off a good pink! With our fresh styling tips, you’ll be able to create the perfect pastel outfit while still keeping your edge.
If you are a pastel rookie, then the best way to ease into this trend is by introducing it through small hints of colour. Consider opting for a single piece of pastel clothing, pair it with your regular neutrals and watch it liven up your entire look. Try on a pale peach shirt peeking through your grey blazer or an unbuttoned mint green shirt over a plain white tee. This season, you have no excuse not to lighten up.
Pastels paired with accents of white make for the most potent combination — there’s just something about the way whites makes these sweeter hues stand out. This look works exceptionally well in the warmer months when outdoor brunches and a day at the beach is on the horizon. Punctuate your pastel bottoms with a white shirt or tee, a slick pair of slip-ons and call it a day. That’s the kind of easy and effortless dressing we aim for.
From Robert Redford’s rendition of Jay Gatsby to Robert De Niro’s mafia look in Casino, Hollywood’s heavyweights have proven their love for pastel when it comes to pairing it with sharp suits. These dreamy hues are a great way to cheer up dull tailoring; opt for a light shirt like our bright yellow Sorrento shirt under a grey suit jacket or pale pink shirt paired with a blue suit. The result is decidedly fresh and dandy.
