Making Pastels Work

Lifestyle11Pastels have emerged as a statement style in fashion for the Fall season. Follow these tips from the NY Times on how to master the pastel.

Offset pale pastel shades with autumnal staple colours such as camel, grey and white. For a more stand out look, match a pastel tunic or top with crimson pants.

Getting your accessories right is key too. Try a handbag in a grey or dark green. You’ll want to pick colours that complement, but don’t outdo your pastel outfit.

Finding the right jewellery to match outfits is always challenging. With pastels, rose-gold is best. Rose-gold barbed wire earrings will add a bit of toughness to the softness of your pastel colour palette. Rose-gold is also a sweet shade of gold in itself, but not too sweet.

There has been no limit to the type of pastels on the Fall runways ranging from boxy pullovers, just-below-the-knee skirts to coats.
