This fall, everyone is talking about the latest trend, sugary pastels, especially in the champagne, ballet pink, and nude families. They popped up all over the Chloé, Céline, and Rochas shows, and not once did they seem too feminine or preteen. Why not? The great fashion houses knew to mix a few key pastels with autumnal staples like rich browns, deep burgundies, and understated rusts and ochres. We’ve put together a list of totally trendy pastel pieces that pair brilliantly with the more traditional fall hues, and can also easily transition into spring and summer looksd.
Ted Baker, Embellished Neckline Sweater, Light Pink
This sweet, sparkly long-sleeved blouse pops as well with maroon cords as a wool ochre bell skirt.
JCrew, Nora Studded Ankle Strap Ballet Flats, Champagne
There’s nothing like a good pair of pink ballet flats, except maybe an olive brown shift and opaque champagne tights to go with them.
H&M, Glossy Skirt, Powder Beige
A thick wool rust-colored sweater would bring this long, ladylike number to the next level.
Topshop, Long Sleeve Silk Pleat Shirt, Nude
Liven up this pale, prim button-down with a chocolatey leather mini skirt and bronze pumps for a feminine ensemble with a worldly edge.
