Cozy up to pastel colors this fall. No need to put the pastels away when the cool weather approaches. Wearing pastels exudes a quietly confident look. Pastels in the fall can be sweet, subtle and a substitute for neutral shades.
Here's my recent article for Closer Weekly plus plenty of extra style suggestions.
4 Tips to Wear Pastels With Ease For Fall.
1-Try just a little. Skip pastels from top to bottom and temper the pale hues by wearing them with denim, camel, gray or even black.
2- Use pastel as a neutral. Pale pastels can act as a basic in your wardrobe. A lilac blouse replaces a cream one; a pink pump fills in for nude.
3- Add some edge. Matching your makeup to your clothes will give you an 80's look, but lined eyes and fall-ready berry lipslend a modern vibe.
4- Skip the frills when wearing pastels. Look for pieces that are simpler in design.
Pastel outerwear doesn't have to always be sweet. Pair with jeans and darker clothes.
