Winter Pastels

Who said winter fashion has to be dark and drab?  Wearing pale colors in the dead of winter is a great fashion trend this year. Did you see the Golden Globes?  Lots of blush tones and soft pastels.

It’s time to dispell the old notions about pale colors.

  • Pastels are only for babies
  • Pastels are only for spring
  • Pastels are strictly feminine

And ring in the new…

Pastels work year round like this wonderful rayon ponte knit in an icy shade of raspberry.

Pastels work on women or men

Pastels work in frothy feminine ruffles as well as tailored tops and dresses.  The print design on this silk is angular and the crinkle linear while being rendered in mostly soft pastel tones.  Great for soft ruffled blouse or drapey camisoles.

Pastels work well in tone-on-tone combos like this threesome in fresh celery.

Pastels also combine well with dark colors for high contrast.
