Last week was all about the sparkle and shine!
This week, I’m taking on a new holiday feel – pastels. They’ve slipped into our winter wardrobes year after year, more so with the adoption of winter whites than dusty blue, but 2016 is the year to embrace these light hearted hues and wear them with joy.
The easiest way to work pastels into your winter wardrobe is with accessories. If you’re not ready to take on a head-to-toe look, start with a handbag, shoe or jewels. Here are a few of my favorite finds!
First up is this baby pink handbag. Trust me, you can do it. Just keep the rest of the look simple. I’m a black/brown bag girl myself, but the second I saw this beauty on with my creme sweater and khaki skirt, it was truly a sight to see. Pairing pastels with neutrals is very sophisticated.
If you’re married to your handbag for the season, you can always bring lighter colors into your jewels. How stunning would this powder blue necklace be over a black sweater or turtleneck? It’s the perfect backdrop and gives this beauty all it’s glory.
If you’re looking for a fun winter addition, try a pair of pastel sunnies. If planning a ski trip, rock these with your all white look for the slopes. So chic!
So, here’s where I cheat a little. Instead of advising you invest in a pastel shoe, I’m going to push the neutral flat because it once again proves to be the most versatile shoe of all time. Dress it up with a cocktail dress, down with skinny jeans or with cigarette pants for the office. It will make styling your other pastel accessories easier, I promise. One less thing to think about!
If you have as big of a crush on these fancy hues as I do this season, it’s time to shop! Be the trend-setter that you’ve always wanted to be and let’s change the perception of holiday attire.
Have fun this holiday season and happy shopping!
