Are you that person who has 50 different garments in black in your wardrobe? It’s time to change that. There are so many reasons to love summer, and the top one on the list is summer fashion. It gives you the opportunity to play around with so many different colour palettes and it doesn’t end there. Floral prints, stripes, checks and more come alive during this season. And if there was ever a time to put away the many black outfits in your closet and swap them for colourful ones, it is now!
This season, pastel outfits are what’s trending. If dressing in colour is new to you or if those bright, flashy pop colours are too much for your taste, the soothing and calm pastel shades should get an exception. Think of powder blue, lavender purple or a minty green hue. These colours are always pleasant on the eyes and undeniably fashionable when styled well.
Pastel hues go beyond the well-known baby pink and blue shades. So we’re here to show you what you need in your wardrobe to take your clothes for summer to the next level. Get some style inspiration and master this trend so you can look oh-so-aesthetic through the summer season.
Casual shirt with denims
If you like wearing a medley of colours, ONLY’s casual shirt is one for the ages. The sleek shirt with full sleeves and a spread collar has a tangle of pastel pink, blue and green patterns. The hints of blue on this otherwise white shirt complements the flared navy blue jeans. A pair of simple green heels will complete this summer outfit nicely.
Polo t-shirt with shorts
For some cute summer outfits for a brunch date with the girls, this tee-and-shorts combo will never fail. The short-sleeved Polo t-shirt with a ribbed design is in a summery powder blue hue and goes well with the easy-breezy denim shorts, embellished with flower motifs. What pastel colour outfit says summer better?
Round neck top with trousers
Not a fan of bright yellow? Opt for a milder hue like lime yellow instead. Code’s loose-fitted top with a deep round neck and flutter sleeves will add a dressy touch to anything it’s paired with. Your outfit ideas for summer should include teaming this top with flared white trousers and lime yellow heels.
Mint green is a particular favourite for pastel aesthetic outfits. Latin Quarters gives us a sober version of a fully green dress with this white A-line dress detailed with green swirls. The swirl pattern combined with the curved hems and cap sleeves make it summer perfect, to say the least. Keep the accessories neutral by adding a pair of beige heels to this look.
Jumpsuit with solid top
If you prefer summer outfits that are more understated, the beige jumpsuit from Ginger has your name on it. Featuring a spaghetti neckline and a straight-leg silhouette, this floral-printed jumpsuit comes with a simple white mock neck top to wear underneath. All you need is a pair of white sneakers to amp up this trendy summer outfit.
T-shirt with cropped jeans
Monochrome doesn’t just have to be black and white outfits. Try the monochrome trend with pastel colours as seen in this pink outfit. Ginger’s cropped jeans in pink is perfect for the summer with its flared design that makes it breezy and comfortable to help you beat the heat. Teamed with the quirky pink t-shirt with a Daisy Duck print, this is a fun pastel outfit you can wear for casual days.
T-shirt with knit shorts
If you’re on the hunt for super comfortable and minimalist pastel colour clothes, you can safely pick this one. The basic pink round neck t-shirt is tucked into Ginger’s knit shorts. The striking feature about these shorts is the multi-coloured tie-dye print that is guaranteed to give you that summer-ready look. These shorts are great for a summer vacay too!
Full-sleeved top with printed shorts
If you like a fancier look for your shorts, then you can try Ginger’s drawstring shorts. The shorts have an array of softly-muted pastel colours and subtle floral prints that make a fashion statement on their own. So let these shorts be the focus of your cute summer outfit and team it with a plain full-sleeved t-shirt. Complete the look with white sneakers or beige sandals – it all depends on your mood!

Sports bra with tights
Don’t miss out on the chance to add a pastel-hue touch to your workout gear. A sports bra and elasticated tights are the centre of a lot of outfit ideas for women because it’s such a timeless look.
