May 12th, 2016 at 2:10am

Picking a color palette is just as important as the outfit itself. Pastels have been trending this season, so it’s essential that you know how to style them. This soft color palette is feminine and girly, but it didn’t stop this Fashionista from putting her spin on it.

A menswear-inspired jacket paired with a bodycon sweater dress starts the outfit. The mixture of these textures creates a dynamic look. As a neutral, the dress makes the jacket stand out. The color pink balances out the larger lapel and length of the duster. It makes the look airy and effortless.

Continuing on the pastel trend, this Fashionista chose a fur pom-pom to attach to her kate spade backpack. The cream color of the bag does exactly what the dress does. The pom-pom pops against the neutral bag. This backpack is practical and chic. It’s big enough to carry books, yet still is stylish. As an avid gold lover, the metal on the bag looks great with the cream color.

The last way this Fashionista accessories is with her boots. Making a statement, she pairs navy boots with her pastel look. I would have never thought to try this color within the already feminine palette, but it gives the outfit an edge. These Chelsea boots are another practical item because they are rain-ready. Don’t let the matte finish be deceiving; these boots will protect your feet in the unpredictable Michigan weather.

How To: Bring pastels into your wardrobe one piece at a time. Try a jacket like this Fashionista and then pair it with neutrals.
