I’ll begin with a confession that not all of the people on this list wear exclusively pastel all of the time but all of them always look amazing (in my humble opinion) and the looks I will be featuring all will be including a pastel element. Summer may have come briefly and then dramatically left the United Kingdom (and now it feels extra cold and I don’t mind it but I’m now just constantly in fear and don’t know what to wear); but it still (apparently) is getting close to summertime so I wanted to showcase some summery looks.
When the sun did hit I was feeling everything soft and pastel so Connie aka Noodlerella’s Instagram was a great source of inspiration. From her pink beret in the below picture (I have a strong obsession with all berets) to the soft sheer sleeved top (which, is another top trend I’m loving at the moment); I love everything about this look.
If you’re inspired by this look I’d suggest checking out this pink Hello Kitty x Asos beret, or this plain soft pink Asos option. If it’s something sheer and lilac that you’re after I suggest this Lazy Oaf basics lilac sheer turtleneck I’ve been coveting or this sold out H and M mesh blouse pale blue blouse (including only because it wasn’t sold out last time I checked so they may still have some in stores).
Skirt wise, I would recommend this Lazy Oaf Check Kilty Skirt option but it’s sold out (though they might have some instore if you can travel to London) though if you type in check tennis skirt into google you’ll probably be able to find a few great alternatives like this Yesstyle option. Vintage shops like Rokit in London are also a great place you could try and it’s better for the environment!
I’ll start by saying that I know the two below images are taken from her side account. Her main Instagram account is Pixielocks but I love these two beret looks so I had to post them. I also NEED to know where that lilac gingham dress(?) is from as that with the sheer white polka dot top is a LOOK. The two berets she is wearing are from Just Peachy who I actually mentioned in my last post. They are both sold out, however, the owner of the shop has just returned from Tokyo so I’m hoping they will come back in stock soon.
I especially love these looks because I like how Pixielocks has matched her eyeshadow with the beret in the first look. I think I could create a similar look with my Juvia’s Place palette (The Magic Palette) that I got as a gift from my friend Callie but you could also probably create something similar with the Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow palette (which, I need).
I have recently discovered this Instagram account from her Youtube channel and I obsessed with her great videos as well as all the style inspiration she provides. I particularly really love this Missguided number that is actually only £10 on the website right now. I keep looking it again and again but don’t think I’d be able to pull it off as well!

Very happy that we visited Hirosaki Castle today! The blossoms were at full bloom, and it was a Monday, so there weren’t too many people around. Good excuse to finally wear this dress! Am I @kaylahadlington yet? 😂 . . . . . #candyminimal, #pastel, #pink, #pastelpink, #pinklovers, #kawaii, #sailormoon , #harajukufashion, #aestheticfeed, #pinklover, #prettypastelplease, #peachypinkworld, #unicornhighlighter , #sparkle, #allthatglitters, #pastelkawaii, #harajuku, #harajukustyle, #aesthetictumblr, #pinkmakeup, #koreanmakeup, #pastelgoth, #kawaiidesu, #aesthetics, #aestheticlife, #pinkglitter, #pinkaesthetic, #aesthetic #sakura
I don’t usually find someone who shares my first name so I get weirdly protective of my name when I do. However, her style is just so cute that I will forgive it (ha, ha). This April recently went to Tokyo and I was simultaneously living through her beautiful snaps and getting more and more enraged about how cute they were! She is also the owner of Just Peachy, which unfortunately for me means she’s definitely cooler than me.
5. Simply Kenna
Simply Kenna is another person I follow on Instagram that has recently visited Japan and consequently made me ridiculously jealous in the process. There was a lot of SCANDAL surrounding Kenna as a Youtuber a while ago (it’s not that hard to find through typing into YouTube). Honestly, I’m not sure where I stand on the situation. I follow Kenna for her style and aesthetic and have never followed her obsessively. I definitely think she didn’t behave well in the past but she has made comments that suggest she is growing recently and I think as long as she doesn’t make similar mistakes again and grows from the experience then that’s all we can hope for.
6. Emma Roberts
Ok, so this look isn’t pastel like at all (yes, I lied at the start). However, it is soft and chic and I love it. I’ve loved Emma Roberts style for a while, as she always manages to put little twists on classic ensembles that never fail to catch my eye. I will attempt to channel a bit of this the summer but I will probably end up coming out as a rainbow potato (which, is forever my aesthetic).
This is just a bonus look as I saw it and couldn’t not include it even though it doesn’t fit this post at all!
7. Kiera Please
I originally started following Kiera Please for her awesome casual cosplays and over time after seeing more and more of her posts I just get more and more upset over how beautiful she is. These three looks are relatively simply but there is something about her that just means anything she wears look awesome. I especially love the pink Barbie look and I’d recommend checking out Missguided’s Barbie Collection if you want to take inspiration from her look.
Laura for me is the queen of prints and pastel. I love the way she mixes bold prints with pastel in a way I’ve not seen anyone else do quite in the same way. Her pink fluffy cotton pink hair is also to die for. Be sure to check out her Instagram if you own anything pastel and are not sure how to style it.
I very recently discovered this Instagram but I am already OBSESSED. All her outfits are pastel gold and I love how her eyeshadow always pops with her outfits – until recently I’ve always been a little afraid to wear the same colour eyeshadow exactly (or a very close shade) to my outfit but Amina looks ridiculously cute doing so.
The below look is so cute I CAN’T EVEN SPEAK. Also, because I have the same bag I I need to take inspiration from this outfit at some point but I don’t think I’d rock the scrunchies anywhere near as well. Since I also have the cardigan in the bottom picture I’ve basically decided we are now style twins (ha, ha).

So there we have it some of my favourite Instagram accounts to look at when I need a bit of style inspiration. I’d also recommend checking out Miley Cyrus’s Instagram who I wish I could have included here but wanted to keep this post to a relatively snappy ten, as well as Kelly Eden. Also, I am in LOVE with the new Converse x Miley Cyrus collection. I’m considering asking for the pair below for my birthday but can’t decide between them and two other pairs in the collection.
If you’ve got any more pastel fashion Instagram accounts or just general fashion Instagram accounts you think I should follow let me know in the comments below.
