So often winter dressing means blacks and greys now while I’m not complaining about this – black holds a very special place in my heart and my wardrobe and that isn’t going to change anytime soon.
But Winter Pastels are a lovely colour addition to a winter wardrobe.
I find that sometimes the pastels are softer and kinder on the paler winter complexion.
I’m just to going come out and say it, I’m pasty white in the winter months and the only way this changes is if I invest in a spray tan, so the softer colours work well for me.
I sometimes still discriminate against pastels as they did get bad name in the 90’s when everyone was painting their houses in pink/peach/baby blue/grey, I think every second house I went to visit had the same pale colour palette.
Pastel can also feel very young and as I start to approach my 50’s (even as I type this I have a feeling of disbelief – my mind is still that of a teenager, childish and immature – don’t get me wrong I love the age I am now but sometimes life just seems to move too quickly and I can’t keep up) anyway back to what I was saying – to wear pastels successfully stick to classic items and designs, try to stay away from frills and flounces.
The easiest way to add a touch of pastel to your winter wardrobe is by adding a cozy knit or a long sleeve shirt. Both these will tie in perfectly with what you are already wearing.
Pastel colours work in well with your favourite pair of denim jeans, ponte pants, wool pants or winter skirt.
I have also added into my favourite picks below the most gorgeous and on trend dusky pink bomber jacket from Feather and Noise.
The bomber jacket is such a fun and relaxed silhouette and perfect for the weekend, wear it as below with a white tee, a pair of ripped jeans and a pair of kicks.
If you want to add some pastel pants try the blue jeggings from Little Party Dress – I have these in black and find them easy to wear and super comfortable. These would fabulous with a slogan tee (check our Ruby and Lilli – the best slogan tees around) and a denim jacket.
In researching Winter Pastels I have tried to find pieces that cover a wide price spectrum – from $49.00 for a pale blue knit from Leelouanne to a silk shirt from Country Road $179.00.
You can choose how much or how little you want to pay to add some softness into your wardrobe.
