Pumpkin orange, cranberry, mustard, chestnut-brown and evergreen are colours usually reserved for the fall fashion season. At New York Fashion Week designers stuck to neutrals like black, camel and olive. But one look at the Paris fall 2013 runways is enough to show us that pastels are no longer just for the spring season. Celine had fresh colours in pale yellow, mint and pink. The silhouettes were minimal, clean and fresh. Carven also had styles in pale blue and pinks that were enough to make you ask if summer is really over.
How do you pull off the pale pastel colours in the fall season? Easy. Just pair them with neutrals to balance it out. Wear a grey blazer with a mint green pencil skirt or a black top with your pale yellow trousers. Keeping it balanced with a traditional fall colour like brown, burgundy or charcoal grey is the best way to wear these new colours for the fall season.
Choosing accessories in autumn colours like dark green, burgundy or grey is another way to complement pastels in your wardrobe. Like this emerald handbag by Mulberry pictured below. But if you want a more monochromatic, streamlined look then wearing one pastel shade from head to toe is your best bet.
