How To Do: Pretty Pastels for a Low-Budget

Last Monday I showed you how to get the Sporty Chic look for a high-budget. However, today I’m going to show you how to do on of the key trends this season; pastels. Pastels always look pretty, but I’m going to show you how to make your outfit look perfect for a low-budget.

There are classic pale pinks, slightly more zingy peaches, cool mint greens, baby blues, daisy yellows and crisp whites. There are so many colours to choose from this season, so it can be hard to know what to choose from and what goes with what. The key to creating a perfect look is to keep the colours similar for the main items in the outfit. However, if you add a highlight of a contrasting pastel-colour to one item, it will add interest to the outfit.

So here’s how to get the look for a low-budget:

Top – H&M – No Description (£24.99)
Skirt – Zara – Asymmetric Fine Pleated Skirt (£29.99)
Heels – Topshop – GRAFFITI Sporty Toecap Points (£55)
Clutch – Topshop – Moc Croc Zip Around Purse (£15)

Wear this peplum effect top fee over the skirt – don’t tuck it in; it will spoil the effect. The asymmetric hem on this skirt from Zara will add a touch of edgyness to an otherwise girly outfit. Tanned, bare legs look great with this outfit, but whilst there is still not much sun (not much in the UK) the heels will look great with some little frilly, pastel coloured socks which will add a little bit of kooky-cool.

For makeup – keep your face fresh, but add a pale pink peach lipstick. For nails – try the ombre effect (my latest obsession) with pink and white – it will look like you have dipped your nails in different shades of sorbet. Mmmmmmmmmm. Check out the video below!

Check out my blog next Monday, where I will be showing you How To Do: Pretty Pastels for a High-Budget.
