at work: Pastel Palette

January 27, 2012

One of my recent projects at Ruche was styling our Pastel Palette feature. We've all been getting so excited thinking about spring, especially when it comes to pretty pastel colors! Just because spring is technically a few months away doesn't mean we can't start incorporating lighter colors into our wardrobes now. I think that having a balance of pastels with darker colors, or neutrals, is key to tying the seasons together. Here are a couple of my favorite looks from the shoot:

What do you think? Are you ready to bring pastels into your wardrobe? Can you wear pastels in winter? 
I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Take a look at the whole feature here, and shop the looks here!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  19. I love pastels, but I just can't bring myself to wear spring-like clothing when it's bitter cold outside. I tend to prefer these types of colours on myself when I have a tan and feel like the colours look better on myself.
