Springtime is the time of year where pink, blue, and yellow pastels appear on blooming flowers. It is the time when soft green sprouts from the branches of the trees. These colors are notoriously represented on clothing seen throughout the spring season. This year however, the notable fad is carrying itself through the fall season.
This year, pastel colors are "in" for fall and winter. But it’s not just pastels that have been added to fall fashion. White, that once a year, wear it while you can, crisp color has been introduced to fall and winter fashion this year too. Ignoring the "no wearing white after Labor Day" rule is a huge change for fall trendsetters. The new color is being called “winter white”, and has appeared on many coats, pants, and dresses. White offers an attention grabbing background to the changing leaves of fall and a clean cut look to match the fresh fallen snow of winter.
Adding pastels to the colors of fall make for more interesting twists on what used to be just the expected attire. Earth tones were always the most worn colors, as they warm up the feel of the season. With pastels thrown into the styles, a smoother transition into fall is initiated, and more creative outfit making options are available to streetwalkers.
Michelle Kalil, a sophomore at Rose Hill campus, takes full advantage of the trending pastel fall palette. The star of her outfit is her pastel pink corduroy pant. The pastel pink is a lighter version of a maroon color usually seen in the fall. She pairs her light colored pants with another light color on top, her denim button down. The white buttons on her top accentuate the light colors of her shirt/pants combo and also match the white watch on her wrist, which is just the right added accessorized touch. Finally, Kalil’s brown boots complete the outfit, providing both an essential fall piece and a subtle addition of grunge to a pretty and chic look for fall.
