What initially comes to mind when you think about cool-girl style? Cropped vinyl pants? Yes. Ankle-clinging sock boots? You bet. But pastels? Not so much. Sure, they’ve long been linked to ladylike looks and classic style, but it isn’t often they’re tied to those fashion-forward girls we’re all screenshotting. But that seems to be changing—pastel looks are, in fact, gaining popularity among the fashion set.
One major reason we think fashion girls are leaning into these colors? They were all over the spring runways. Lavender, for instance, was the color of the season, and we’re predicting it’ll make a huge splash in the next few months. And Millennial Pink might not be quite as popular as it was last year, but it’s showing no signs of fading away. Want ideas for how to pull off pastels? Go on to see how cool girls are wearing it and shop pieces inspired by their looks.
Try offsetting pink with a strong piece like a black vinyl coat.
