The best thing to happen to fashion in the last decade has been the near-complete destruction of “rules.” You know, never wear this with that, certain colors for certain seasons… That’s all gone out the window and ushered in an anything goes age of dressing. So on that note, lets talk about pastels. They have always signaled spring, flowers and flirty little sundresses to me. However, the rise of colored denim in every shade your mind can imagine has me reconsidering.
I really like the idea of embracing a new hue of denim, but one that’s soft and subdued – like the denim equivalent of a cashmere sweater. For example, these Paige Denim mint green Verdugo denim leggings will look divine with any of your winter staples. I kept them cozy with a dove grey Splendid sweater, but think of possibilities! Mint looks fresh with navy, chocolate brown, and burgundy for everyday looks – but try it with neon, plaid or another bold print for a serious wow-factor.
Here are a few more of my favorite pastel denim pieces:
Some of these colors are more winter-wearable than others, but it’s really all about how you mix them in. Try all tones of grey, mustard yellow, forest green, and raspberry to compliment the lighter tones. Avoid black (too harsh). I’m quite curious about the possibilities with this color palette myself, so stay tuned for more winter pastel exploration.
Will you try out winter pastels this year?
