I’m always love coordination a pink and purple combo because i inspired Japanese Street Style: Fairy Kei! So yes, pink and purple do (or at least, can) match.

The most important rule of pastel shades is not to overdo with their “sweet” manner. Maybe all these head to toe pale lemon and sugary pink dresses with lace details, accessorized with pastel shoes, bags and headbands, look chic on the catwalk , but in real life they can be too much – after all, not all of us are pastry saleswomen. Instead, try to calm things down by accessorizing your pastel clothes with pieces in white or other neutral tones.
Do not be afraid to mix pastel colors with neutral ones. Beige and coffee shades will help you balance the girly nature of pastels.
Mix pastel shades on the principle of color-block, using things with clean straight lines. Pastel color-block will not work with clothes featuring too complicated cuts and draperies.
If you are not sure that you will feel self-confident in pastel clothes, start with small things here and there, mostly using pastel accessories, such as a pastel clutch, jewelry, hats or shoes in candy hues . You can also experiment with pastel makeup (pastel pink or blue nail varnish will look amazing with a black dress or a white suite with pants).
The most wining pastel accessory is a spectacular clutch in pale pink, banana, lilac or mint. A small square or rectangular pastel colored clutch will add cheerfulness look.
Pastel shoes look amazing in combination with white pants or a light colored dress . You can also wear pastel colored shoes with shorts and skirts in much softer shades. Don’t forget about pastel jewelry.
