Well This Is an Awesome Way to Wear One of Spring's Biggest Clichés

Pastel colors have always been a springtime style staple, so it's hard to bat an eye when soft blues or mint greens show up on spring red carpets. But even so, when a style star like Freida Pinto mixes soft colors with a classic silhouette, magic happens.

Pinto walked the red carpet for the premiere of her Showtime drama, Guerrilla, Thursday in a dusty pink silk pantsuit, and her outfit has us rethinking pastels' status as a spring cliché. She styled the look with a simple white box clutch, a golden draped choker necklace, and a pair of low-key metallic flats.

While pastels and feminine pantsuits are nothing new, Pinto's take on it certainly is. Her elegant pink pantsuit paired with toned-down makeup and a fun choker is a new spin on a classic color. We're also giving her bonus points because her outfit is totally embracing the spring trend bloggers are wearing on repeat.

Take a look at Freida Pinto's red carpet style below for a lesson on how to wear spring pastels in a brand-new way.
