Trend Watch | Pastels for Fall

Along with traditional jewel tones and deep, saturated hues, a surprising color trend is making it’s debut this fall – pastels.

The good news is that this trend can extend the wear of some of your favorite pastel pieces from spring and summer.  Think twice before you store those pink, lavender, mint and yellow cardigans, blouses, blazers and jeans.

I decided to give it a try with my favorite pair of mint jeans.  Adding a navy jacket and leopard heels helped to ground the look and make it more fall-like.

If you don’t have a pair of pastel jeans yet, it’s not too late.  Here’s an option in corduroy also made by Kut from the Kloth.  These jeans fit me so well – they have the perfect rise, not too high or too low. Their corduroys come in eight different colors.

These would look great paired with a chunky beige sweater and some ankle boots.

  1. I have mint jeans that I recently paired with a navy top for fall and it felt good to wear color this season! It has been in the 80s here still – which is so weird for us! I am still wearing shorts! I am thankful that you approved wearing color for fall – I hate wearing all black and gray! Blessings! Susan

  2. So pretty! I’m seriously considering a pastel coat for the winter. I like the idea of something pretty in what is sure to be a loooong cold season here.

  3. Not seeing pastels as a fall trend in NY bc the weather turns relatively quickly but it IS a great way to extend the life of a trend and look gorgeous as always. Bye bye summer!

  4. I love those mint jeans and how you made them work for fall! I have some shorts the same color and have been trying to work through what to wear them with – I think the navy is a winner!

  5. A lot of times pastels wash me out, but I like the idea of wearing them on the bottom and pairing them with something darker! Your outfit is perfect for fall! Well done my friend! 🙂

  6. This whole outfit is killer! I feel somewhat out of place in pastels. It probably has something to do with the fact that I’m freaked I’ll spill something on myself!
