During the winter months it is so easy to reach for black, black, black – I am totally guilty of this! While I love a good black look, sometimes it is nice to switch it up with something fresh. Pastels are big for winter this year but I think that people are intimidated by the idea of “spring” colors in the winter, so I wanted to share a few tricks to make them work!
1. Pair with a darker, more wintery color. This will keep the chosen pastel piece from looking out of place or like you are dressed for the wrong season.
2. Play with texture. Mix in wintery textures like wool, flannel, and tweed to keep the look seasonally appropriate.
3. When in doubt, go for winter white. While not technically a pastel, white is traditionally a warm-weather color hence the “no white after labor day” rule. If you can get an off-white or ivory rather than true white, that helps!
Are you a fan of wearing pastels or do they intimidate you? If so, do you think these tips have changed your mind?!
