Blue or pink, pastels look incredible when worn the monochrome way. Choose the same colour palette from top to bottom and you’re ready to slay. From a monochrome jumpsuit, crop top with a lehenga skirt or simple kurta pyjamas, you’re going to look like a diva when you match the outfits. You can even choose shoes in a similar pastel shade to not break the combination.

Want to make a striking appearance? Mix your pastel outfit with a brighter contrasting shade. From accessories, shoes to even bottoms, you can brighten your pastel outfit just the way you want. Make a gentle yet bold choice by mixing a pastel kurta with a brighter jacket or a scarf.
