Today on Blush & Camo I am going to share with you how to wear pastels during fall because no season is off limits to these gorgeous colors! I broke down how to wear pretty pastels into two simple categories.
1.) IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MATERIAL
The material you wear does matter when rocking pastels for fall/winter. During the summer you can wear pastels on lighter fabrics such as chiffon and jersey. For the colder seasons you want your pastels on materials such a wool, cashmere, and tweed!
The reason you want pastels on your thicker fabrics is because the pastel color creates a counterbalance to the heaviness of the martial you are wearing. By using this fashion guideline (let’s be honest, there are NO rules in fashion!), your overall look will appear more feminine!
