Pink Pastels x Sheye Oladejo
"...Baby, that we all want, we all need, fashion..." - Jon Bellion
Hello everyone! I recently got an offer for a partnership with Nigerian women-wear brand, SheyeOladejo.
They're especially known for evening wears, custom tailoring services and bridal wears. Their contemporary label is called 'Scqueeze' and this post features two pieces from their recent collection, 'Backbone'.
You'll see a lot more of posts like this because guess who is SheyeOladejo's muse for six months? Yay! Me!
Now, I've never really been a fan of pink. Probably because it's so soft and feminine and girly and I'm not really about that life. However, my prejudice doesn't stop me from appreciating the beauty that is pink. From fuchsia to its pastels like flamingo, rouge, crepe and watermelon; It is such a beautiful and flattering color.
My favorite ways to style pastels are; Monochromatic(which is different shades of one color), Mixed pastels(which would create a soft yet bold look), Mixed with neutrals(which makes the pastel piece pop) and Mixed with brights.
For the following two looks, I picked two of my favorite styles; Monochromatic and Mixed with brights.
Like I mentioned earlier, this is basically sticking to one color throughout your outfit. The co-ord set already set the tone. I added a pair of pink poms in a slightly darker shade to keep it going.
Mixed With Brights
For the second look, I added a pair of bright red heels to this pink skirt-set. This adds a little edge to the softness of the look.
There are really no rules to styling pastels because just about anything works. Do keep the following in mind though.
Accessorize. Ironical coming from me considering I don't wear accessories right? Accessories however, turn basic ensembles into statement looks and for a pastel palette, you don't want to risk looking washed up.
Don't overdo it. Keep your hair and makeup simple because pastel hues are soft and feminine. You don't want your makeup to overpower your outfit.
You can get both outfits and more via SheyeOladejo's Instagram page HERE, or you can send them an EMAIL.
