#40plusstyle inspiration: Wearing pastel colors!

We talked about pastels before this year since they are one of the biggest trend this season. Today I show you some more inspiration on wearing pastels both from myself and from the 40+ community who shared their looks through the #40plusstyle tag on Instagram.

One of my own tricks for not getting washed out by pastels is to wear it with a brighter color. I love wearing this silk and linen baby blue top from In Good Company with my trusted red skirt. Adding some brighter accessories help brighten up the look.

For more help on wearing pastel colors, check out this article on how to wear pastels or check out some of my recent pastels outfits. Also check out our tips and inspiration on how to wear pink and how to wear pale blue.

Here are a lot more looks featuring pastels from the 40+ community.

Finally, here is how I wore the same skirt with a pink top.

I think it’s good to have every color in our closets!! And pastels are truly no exception!
I just bought a pair of lilac jeans and I’m excited to wear them to a baseball game this summer!! jodie


I have nothing to share in pastels. It just isn’t me. At all. If I were to wear pastels I need a bright colour near my face, like you did in the last picture. What you did in the first picture (the red only at the bottom) doesn’t work for me. Wait a minute.. I might have something to share.
