Summer Style: How Pastels Can Never Go Wrong

Summer Style: How Pastels Can Never Go Wrong

I have to admit, I’m happier.I missed the sun, I missed the brightness and I was tired of gloom.

I missed the sun, I missed the brightness and summer is finally here in Basel, Switzerland.

Feeling more cheerful and brighter, I’m pulling out all outfits that were out of sight (but not out of mind). Today we’re going to talk about one such summer outfit: the perfect one that can suit all body types and works on almost all occasions.

The Perfect Summer Outfit: Pick an off-shoulder Bardot top

With the temperatures over 20 degrees, it was time to ditch the jacket and bare my shoulders. A hit from last year, off-shoulder tops are completely on-trend. Trust me, you CAN’T go wrong with an off-shoulder. I like how versatile off-shoulders can be.

Having said that, I wanted to be comfortable in what I wear. If you’ve noticed, comfort is always the biggest trend for me, if I am not comfortable I am not wearing it (no matter how trendy it is)  Since I don’t want to bare too much, the Bardot trend, which accentuates the collar bones was perfect for me. This off-shoulder top with minimum flare. It’s also elasticated, meaning I can adjust it according to my liking.

I bought this from my recent trip to India from Cover Story. The top retails for Rs 1290 (19 CHF) and is available on Myntra.

The two things you should consider when wearing white pants

A wardrobe essential for sunny days, white pants are one of the hottest trends on Bloglovin. As much as I love my whites, I’m very particular about their length and fit. If you’re wearing tapering pants, they should end just above the ankle. And they should fit properly from the waist.

A buy from last year, I was glad I was able to fit right back into them as they met both my checkpoints. These trousers are from Mast&Harbor and come with a subtle embroidery in white itself. The pattern on the bottoms, add a lot of character to the entire outfit.

How To Style The Perfect Summer Outfit

I think this depends on your personal style as well as where you’re going. Since I like to keep things very comfortable, I decided to pair my outfit with brogues. I usually try to keep shoes and bag to similar tones.

Another way you could style these is to wear neon pink heels to really bring out the blush tones in the top. You could also try color blocking if you’re looking to make a style statement.

I teamed my whole outfit up with my favorite accessories – the Michael Kors watch in rose gold and my engagement ring! I’d love to have worn a more classic pair of sunglasses but I lost my aviators this April on our trip to Bali.

Outfit Details: The pink off shoulders is from a store called “Cover Story” and the pants are from my favorite online store on Myntra – “Mast and Harbour”. For the folks in Switzerland, you can get very similar outfits in H&M, New Yorker and Orsay. Thanks for reading! All the images have been shot in my backyard using the new Samsung C9Pro.
