With Fashion Week ending just weeks ago, Spring-time hues and shades are filling up the inspiration boards. If you don't want to wait until Spring to wear your favorite pastel shades (and why should you?) here are some tips for transitioning pastels for Fall:
|Prada via style.com|
- Pair it with a neutral: shades of browns and black seem to work with almost any pastel (lavender, mint, sherbet colors) so the choice is yours!
|Aquilano. Rimondi via style.com|
- Keep it away from your face and pair it with a print: we all can look a little "washed out" during the colder months so if you're not sure if pastels are a flattering fit for you, just keep it on the bottom half (skirts, cigarette pants, wide leg colored jeans) and mix it with a Fall-friendly neutral print.

- Embrace the color-blocking trend: try sleek color-blocking with pastels or even mix your pastels with some other colors (think: lavender + plum + burgundy or mix some mint into a "sea" of greens and blues)
About my outfit: This Theory sweater is a new purchase which I can't wait to layer button-downs under. The weather is still teeter-tottering right now, so I wore it by itself and paired it with a short, flouncy skirt. I Fall-icized it by pairing it with my favorite neutral: chocolaty brown. The platform wedges add some interest and then I kept the accessories simple in neutral colors.
Would you wear pastels during Fall and Winter months?
P.S. I did get some positive feedback about my "Best Form of Flattery" series so I'd like to maybe give it a go next week? It will be once a week, probably on Sunday. Please let me know if you would be interested in participating and also feel free to recommend inspiration photos! I will continue to post this reminder in my next few posts until then.
