Power Pastels

We all have a soft spot for pastels. The feminine colour palette reminds us of sugary sweets and refreshing sorbet flavours. Although lighter colours are more prominent during the warmer months, there are sartorial ways to add some saccharine substance to our fall wardrobe. Here are some style tips to sport the candy-coloured dress code.

pastel overcoat
Pastels make great colours for ladylike overcoats. Simply wear it over a crisp white blouse and skinny pants and you’ll have a perfectly cute look for the fall.

pastel cropped green jacket
A “lite” alternative to the trench, a cropped jacket can still keep you warm and stylish this fall.

pastel pants
Pastel pants are a comfy way to wear the trend. Wear them like you’d typically wear your indigo denims. Complete a casual look with some ballet flats or glam it up for a night out with a pair of heels.

pastel sweater
Celebrate sweater weather with pastels! Pair your sweet-looking sweaters with warmer tones such as dark greys and deep greens to offset the pale palette.

Layering pastels
A pastel sweater makes a luscious layering piece as well. Wear it over a button down blouse or shift dress and finish off the fall ensemble with an overcoat.

pastel bag
When in pastel doubt, accessorise! You can start with a pastel purse to add some sweet confection to your ensemble.
pastel shoes

Or, wear an LBD with a pair of pastel shoes such as these rose-coloured Valentino Rockstud Pumps.

A chic pastel dress is a quick and easy way to create a feminine and demure look. Opt for a weather-appropriate long sleeved dress and pick any colour you desire from the pastel rainbow. A pastel-blocking dress makes for a nice candied touch too. If it gets too cold, wear it over dark-coloured tights and wrap a shawl around your neck.
