More often than not, wearing soothing pastel tints is considered to make you look soft, sweet and well… sympathique. While the desaturated palette of pale hues is thought of as very girly, the way you wear them can really make a difference. Moreover, since the 1980’s television show Miami Vice heavily popularized mixing pastels for men, summer seasons have always been the perfect time of the year for lads to release their inner Sonny Crockett. In recent years washed out colors even make it into the autumn season. Whereas keeping the rest of your outfit in simple neutral tones makes wearing just one pastel item pop, you can push for a more bold and quirky look by taking a monochrome approach or choosing surprising materials such as leather. Her ensemble showcases this, sticking to pale pink for the complete outfit and sporting a leather miniskirt which matches perfectly with his pale pink leather jacket. His ensemble is further balanced out with some casual ripped jeans and a white t-shirt. Walking down the iconic Rue Crémieux in Paris, one is well-suited to think pink!
