Pastel pieces of clothing are often associated with the spring-summer season. When fall and winter come around, we’re most likely to reach for darker coloured clothing. However, that doesn’t mean that you cannot wear them during the winter time too, to break the monotony of grays and browns, which are part of the color palette most winter clothes use. Here’s how to pull pastels off this season.
The key to making pastels work for fall/winter is to team them with colors that fall under the “neutrals” spectrum. These are: gray, black, white, beige, khaki, tan, ivory, dark blue, etc. These colors can be worn with each other and with any other color. If you find yourself wear an all-neutral outfit, you can break it up by changing one of the pieces with a pastel one. Also pastels go great with other pastels; there is no doubt about that. Wearing two or more chalky colors at the same time will result in a warm, relaxed and welcoming look.
If you’re trying to incorporate some pastel to your otherwise dark and neutral fall wardrobe, wearing pastel coat is the easiest way to do it. After all, everyone needs a winter coat so why not choose one that makes people look twice? You can throw your pastel coat over any outfit and it will look chic and fashion-forward all because of the color. You can pair it with anything you’re wearing whether it’s your favorite pair of jeans for a weekend walk in the park or your black leather leggings and chunky sweater for a night out with your friends. But coats aren’t the only pastels you can wear this season. Pastel sweaters, winter dresses with pastel detailing, pastel trousers and pastel accessories can also be part of your winter outfits.
If the idea of incorporating these quintessentially springtime shades into your wintry mix scares you, don’t worry. Just check out the pictures below to get some ideas. Enjoy!
Well my beautiful ladies, it’s time to get out of the mindset that pastels can only be worn in the springtime. Much like other “rules” in the fashion world, this one was meant to be broken. So don’t be afraid to try some pastel in your wardrobe this winter!
