It’s been a while since I’ve written a style guide. I wanted to focus today’s post on a trend called Palewave, which as the name implies, has something to do with light colors.
According to this Palewave guide from OnPointFresh:
“Palewave is a very popular aesthetic that typically starts to gain more and more traction as summer starts to hit. Palewave centers around muted and pale colors with a very relaxed and comfy vibe. One of the main draws of Palewave is that it is an aesthetic that can be had for quite cheap. So, if you’re looking for a new look this summer but money is tight, maybe give Palewave a try.”
Since they already give a guide for looks and inspiration, I wanted to center this post around where to find good Palewave pieces at a reasonable price point.
Both my hoodie and my jeans are from Zara, which has a bunch of really nice pieces at very reasonable prices. I linked to some shirts on the website in nice pale blues, peaches, and pinks that work well for Palewave.
Additionally, Target recently started carrying a trendy private label brand called Goodfellow. I have a few pieces from there, including henleys and long sleeve shirts, but I really enjoy the fit and color of their t-shirts (and for under $10!). Just so you know that I’m not pushing them onto you, here’s one man’s honest review of their clothes. As I say all the time, you just have to find brands whose cut and color fit your body shape.
And as always, you already know about my love for Uniqlo <3, so here’s a video of someone’s Palewave haul.
If you’re already a pro Palewave surfer, I want to see your outfits! Be sure to stop by my Instagram and tag me in a post of your best look!
