The second summer ends, people begin to put away their light colors and rely solely on their endless supply of black clothes to get them through the fall and winter seasons. However, layering light pastel items with staple fall colors such as olive, rust, navy and gray makes for a beautiful color combination that is still season-appropriate. The key to mixing in pastels is knowing just the right shade to compliment your fall ensembles, that’s why this season we’re all about rose.
I know what you’re thinking, because I, too, had my reservations at first, but once you begin to work rose into your wardrobe, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. It’s not as harsh as a graphic white, and it adds a nice feminine touch no matter how you wear it. So whether you prefer it in a shoe, a bag or even a candle, do yourself a favor and be open to a pink shade. Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the roses – designer’s certainly are.
