London Fashion Week street style aficionados have been out in full force these past few days and I can’t resist pinning every look to my Pinterest board. Whereas NYFW’s street style displayed urban, monochromatic ensembles, the streets of London depicted a colorful CandyLand. Which is all to say that in contrast to the commercial bent of their American counterparts, LFW has a reputation for taking risks and refusing to conform to trends (though critics state that is quickly changing). Case in point: pastels. In fall. Though not exactly a revolutionary concept, it is a highly underrated one judging by the minimal amount of macaron hues in stores this season. Blush, rose, baby blue, mint, butter cream, and lilac are typically associated with spring and enjoy a prominent presence in several Spring 2014 collections, like Antonio Berardi and Burberry Prorsum. But as LFW street style proves, pastels in fall create a vibrant, romantic phentermine online us alternative to the season’s standard dismal tones of brown and grey. Back in college, my favorite fall accessory was a pair of mint green cowgirl boots from Fornarina (now long gone, sadly) that brightened up every outfit and caught the eyes of passersby all over NYC.
Here are some of my favorite pastel pieces for fall, including a rose leather jacket for a tough yet sweet look; a baby blue wool coat to replace your standard black or brown coat; and a black sweater dress accented by pastels for those who want to remain true NYC’s sartorial sophistication. Which piece is your favorite?
