Here are some pastel color combinations that I’m adding to my closet, inspired by the spring 2015 shows.

When I look at the most recent spring 2015 collections and all the great colors and sandals, it makes me miss the summer, and wish I could wear some of those colors now. My winter wardrobe seems to be mostly neutrals: lots of gray, black, brown — and pretty much black tights with everything. I try to get different color boots to spice it up, but that only goes so far. So recently, while online shopping, I saw the Misguided Coat on sale for $38.

I thought to myself, Why haven’t I bought more pastels to mix in with these dull sweaters? Here are some pastel color combinations that I’m adding to my closet, inspired by the spring 2015 shows.

Lilac

This lilac skirt from Nasty Gal is only $68 and can be easily worn in the winter and summer. I like that it’s high waisted so you can wear it with a cropped sweater like this one from H&M for $25 and layer with this neutral faux fur coat from House of Fraser for $50.

Light Blue

Pale blue jacket and orange skirt.

I love contrasting colors, but I get that some people see it as too bright. I love this citrus/sky combination, and this burnt orange pencil skirt from Choies is only $12. The pale blue sweater is $25 from House of Fraser and perfectly matches the tone of the coat from Choies for $59. If you’d prefer to tone down this outfit, just switch out the skirt for something black.

Rose

Rose pants and Zara coat.

I am not a fan of Barbie pink, but I can pull off rose. I love this look because it’s something I would feel comfortable wearing anywhere, since the Zara coat ($60) dresses up any outfit and keeps you warm. The Topshop Pants are $75 and are cropped at the ankle, which I need since I’m only 5' 3". The Topshop sneakers ($35) make it casual and fun with a metallic sheen. You can make this work for summer by getting rid of the coat and swapping in a white T-shirt. 

Mint

Mint outfit.

I always seem to wear the same rotation of dresses to after-work functions, where I usually have to wear a dress but not ball gown attire. This outfit is good for those nights. I have this H&M dress ($35) in all three colors because it’s incredibly comfortable and flattering. I’ve paired it with this coat from Romwe for $32, because tweed is warm. And the mix of gray and white keeps the jacket from looking like every other plain coat. To finish off, these mint green statement earrings from Baublebar are just $10. 

Do you incorporate clothes from other seasons in your wardrobe?
