When summer pastels and Autumn tones meet.

If you invested in summer pastels it would be a shame to pack them all away now. As the weather turns  chilly and the Autumn season has definitely arrived you can adapt your summer pastels and brights by teaming them with sumptuous full bodied hues or more wintery neutral shades. This enables you to get more mileage from your clothes.

How about sugary pink with aubergine or navy.

    I really like the last grouping with the baby blue…but overall I really avoid pastels. Even during warmer weather I prefer more saturated colors! Have a great week!!

    Because the fall in upstate NY is awash with reds, yellows and orange, I always think in terms of these when transitioning my wardrobe. But the softness of the pastels against the richer, darker hues is refreshing. I think these combinations would be a lovely way to lighten up the winter doldrums and bring a touch of summer to winter’s icy, darker days. Thank you for the idea.

    Really sophisticated stylings … colors are perfect. I have an odd but pretty pair of silky pants that are either teal or green … can’t decide which. But I love the idea of the right mint to go with them!
    Thank you!
