When I typically think of fall and winter fashion, my mind immediately goes to dark colors, heavy and chunky textures. Leather, Fur, and Wool. With so many exciting options to put together I never felt I was lacking color choices or longing to wear my light chiffon scarves or dresses. I have always been a huge fan of putting together a look with winter whites. It's a strong look, head to toe white. There has always been enough winter fabric options in white to put together a true winter white look. (White furs, coats, sweaters and such) I can't help but to cringe a little when I see a summer white look or summer pastel piece trying to be restyled into a winter look. Rarely works. Lets just not go there people.
To my visual delight, while watching the FWFW (fall winter fashion week) a ton of winter pastel options graced the runways. I immediately fell in love with the soft romantic hues in chunky heavy textures. I couldn't wait to put together some winter pastel looks. But then it hit me, as it does every season of fashion week, this won't hit mainstream fashion right this second. Most defiantly not the stores in MN. I'll have to hunt and order and buy while i'm traveling to find this new trend. HA! I was wrong!! Not but a month later I saw winter pastels everywhere! In stores. In MN. High 5 to MN Fashion! Every year it gets better! This year, I waited not, no need for hunting, for traveling. Fashion trends straight from this seasons runways! I have had the best of times mixing in pastel fur into my winter wardrobe! Pastel leather, chunky sweaters and scarves! I. Am. Obsessed. Truly freaking out obsessed. It's a must try this season! Rock a head to toe pastel look or mix a pastel piece into a darker winter look you already have. However you prefer to rock it, go for it! Change it up a little! Feels good!
Mix your dark winter fur with some new pastel fur!
Complementary style trends:
- cool, slouchy, boyish silhouettes born on the spring runways but made hot once again during fall and winter;
- 1960s inspired looks complete with short A-line hems, peacoats, cozy turtlenecks and high-waisted pants;
- digital prints that appear all the more fab when delicate cashmere knits are in pastel tones.
As Always, I hope I helped inspire you!
