About these coordinates     Color coordinates

Pastels or pastel colors belong to a pale family of colors, which, when described in the HSV color space, have high value and low saturation.[1][2] The name comes from pastels, art media characteristic of this color family. The colors of this family are usually described as "soothing".[3]

Pink, mauve,[4] and baby blue[5] are commonly used pastel colors, as well as magic mint, peach, periwinkle, and lavender.

In fashion

In the 1980s, there was a trend of pastel colors in men's fashion. In particular, the NBC television police series Miami Vice popularized what was already a growing trend even further as its lead character Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson) exclusively wore pastel shirts and suits, setting a fashion that stood popular years after the show ended. The abundance of pastel was and still is, also visible in the shooting locations with Art Deco buildings around the Miami area.

There is also a type of goth style called pastel goth which takes the pastel colors and adds them to classic goth fashion.[citation needed]
