Sugarplum Pastels for Winter

Generally, the chillier months of the year invoke a desire to deck yourself out in earthy shades or rich jewel tones. And I admit, I often gravitate towards colors such as bordeaux, burnt orange, and brown when the temperatures begin to drop. However, my heart always remains with the pastels of warm days past. As a a very girly girl who wears very little black, winter can often be disheartening when it comes to fashion. That is . . . until the past couple of years.

Many of you may have noticed the abundance of “winter pastels” that are available at your local mall. It all began with the insurgence of the “winter white” trend in 2014 that kicked to the curb the old rule about wearing white after Labor Day. And it didn’t take pastels long to follow. And in many ways, it makes sense. White and pale blue are colors that come to mind when you think of ice and snow – while pale pink invokes images of sugarplums and a wintry twilight sky glinting off a freshly fallen snowfall. And these colors look almost ethereal against a winter backdrop. So why let the seasons dictate what colors are acceptable? Go ahead and wear all of these pretty, feminine hues, and look like the chicest snow fairy while doing so!
