1. Mixed Pastels

Mixing pastel shades creates a soft, feminine look. Create an outfit with a single pastel hue or opt for a look with multiple pastel hues. De basic rule of combining a maximum of 3 colors is also applicable to mixed pastels. Soft Colors don’t overrule, but rather complement each other and create a nice color balance.

2. Tonal

Pairing a tonal, or in other words, a color-on-color look is easy to apply within every color group, including Soft Colors. For example , think of a pastel blue hue combined with denim blue and dark blue. This color group - blue in this case - is emphasized, and simultaneously adds a certain calm appeal.  Add warmth by choosing a color with a warm undertone within the color group - think of cobalt blue within the blue colors.

3. Earth tones

Earth tones cover a color range from beige to khaki green and taupe with a warm, yet neutral appeal. Earth tones radiate warmth and are the perfect counterpart to the cool Soft Colors. Looking to emphasize the warmth of earth tones? Opt for a combination with luxurious materials, like cashmere and silk or a material with a rich texture. A pastel shade styled with a chunky knit in a warm beige color is a perfect example. You can’t go wrong!

4. Non-colors and grey

Non-colors black and white, with grey as a blend of the two, are a neutral base to team with every color group. These colors emphasize and deepen the effect of the color you pair them with - as is the case with Soft Colors. White adds a fresh feel, while black adds a tough edge. Both colors - and grey - are a great match with soft, cool tones.
