We all associate each season with different colours. In Spring we bust out the pastels while we tend to go for burnt oranges and shades of brown in the Autumn. It’s great to shake things up in the wardrobe and bring in a new colour pallette. But this season it’s time to break the mould and carry some colours we associate with other seasons into the Autumn.
Wearing pastels in Autumn is not only unexpected, but it’s a great way to embrace trans-seasonal dressing. Designers get that we don’t want to be limited to one color theme per season, which is why they’re offering autumnal pieces in macaron-inspired colors along with traditional shades. The key is choosing heavier fabrics so the pastel colors look intentional and can be worn well into the winter months.

Bring Out the Boots
One of the easiest ways to take a breezy pastel dress from the warmer weather into fall is to add boots. It gives you the opportunity to show off the latest addition to your shoe collection. Furthermore, taller boots will completely alter the vibe of a shorter hem.
Get more mileage out of a striped cotton dress by wearing pieces in deeper shades of the pastel fabric.
All Wrapped Up
Layers and contrasting colors can make pastel shades work all year. The addition of a khaki green belted coat and boots adds some edge to the pink separates and make them look appropriate for Autumn.
