Well it's no question that the '90s are back (or at least, hopefully, being reinvented). One of the easier pills to swallow is the return of pastels. I like pastels, assuming they don't get too sweet. And the best way to combat their sweetness is with a dose of sophistication or a grounding color (aka darker, if not black). Here are two examples that I felt demonstrated each technique well. Can you tell which is which? Meet me in the comments to discuss.
