Pastels for summer and early autumn

Pastels for summer and early autumn


I know it might seem counter intuitive to buy a pastel pink jacket at this time of year. Our thoughts are beginning to orientate towards deeper autumnal hues. The first batch of the new seasons styles begin to hit the shops. However here are some reasons this strategy may not be as strange as it first appears.

In the photos I have teamed this pink jacket is by Winserlondon. Now in their sale (reduced from £125 to £79). The jacket is a thick stubby cotton. In my minds eye I can imagine wearing it with black or navy in September. Perhaps even into October depending on the weather.

It is a useful travel piece and is likely to accompany me when I return to France the second week of September.

    A perfect piece to see you into the colder weather. Looks really cosy and soft too. I am a big fan of the winser London brand

    Love it. Pale pink is now one of my favourite wardrobe colours – it goes so beautifully with white and grey.

    I bought the short waffle textured pink jacket by Winser and love it! Have worn it over long stripey dresses and capris. Xx

    That long jacket would be gorgeous with brown–I just love pink and brown together–or grey, going into the fall and perhaps early winter. Hunter green or a deep purple, too. I would own this and wear it three quarters of the year, if I could.

    Thanks for all your lovely comments.
    Purple and hunter green are very “in” colours this so I might try them. If I wear brown it needs to be a cool version otherwise it is a bit too draining for my colouring.
