IFB Project #122: Pastel Harvest


Pastels traditionally appeared in the Spring. You know, to match the blossoming trees, the sprouting flowers, the color of the season.  This year, blush pinks, robin's egg blues and pale yellows have been working their way into the fall wardrobe. Honestly, I've always loved fall colors, but this trend of mixing things up is really refreshing. Not only is it a great way to get more wear out of your seasonal wardrobe, but it takes the connotation of color to a new level. How do you make Spring colors look like Fall?

IFB Project #122: Autumnal Pastels

This week, we're taking on a color challenge. How do you wear pastels in the colder months? What makes it “Fall” rather than “Spring?” Texture, layers, the ever so slightest shade of color. Put together a pastel look that says “Autumn.”

    Love the idea of going GENTLY into fall with soft colors instead of the dull, dead hues. There are also lots of jeweltone brights that are freshening things up this fall, so it’s been a fun season!

    Oh my gosh, I just posted about the pastel pink trend on my blog today! Its one of my favorite fall trends for sure. “Pink makes the prettiest addition to winter wardrobes” – Vogue fashion features director Sarah Harris. I couldn’t agree more. http://wp.me/p3C4p6-ht
