Designers were on a sugar high this season with their cotton candy and bubble gum pastels. If you’re a girly girl, you can embrace the look full on. But if you’re not, you don’t have to miss out. All you have to do is cut the sugary look with a dose of black (and white). The resulting look is one part serious, one part sugar, and wholly stylish. Here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with a foundation of basic black with a silk tank and a leather skirt.
2. Cut the black with a dose of white. A white patterned blouse and a white snakeskin handbag add dimension through texture.
3. Accessorize with a gold spike bracelet and a pair of aviators - one part classic, one part cool.
4. Finish off the look with a pair of minty pastel heels. Bonus points for an eyecatching texture, like this sporty mesh.
