The RLS Guide to Picking Pastels for Fall

Fall is just about here and it’s time to break out the pastels! Huh? Pastels, particularly pink…for fall?! I know, I know. It sounds crazy to everyone but true fashion folk, who love anything they haven’t seen before.

The look on the runways for Fall Winter 2013/14 favored head-to-toe lilac, mint, baby blue, and the aforementioned pink. Too much for real life? Here are some tips to pick your pastels.

Step 1. Choose how far you are going to go with the trend: small, medium or large.
Step 2. The easy part: pick your favorite pastel! Let’s say you decide to go big or go home. The other hot fashion story on the runway is the voluminous coat. Imagine a pale pink coat over a monochromatic charcoal or black look, probably already hanging in your closet. Très chic, non?
