February 2012 Lookbook: Tame Pastels with Black (and White)

February 28th, 2012

Omiru's February 2012 Lookbook: Pastels for a Pop
This look is part of Omiru’s February 2012 Lookbook series, which builds upon our 16-Piece February 2012 Capsule Wardrobe.  See more information about this look.

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.
