Pastels and Black / Knits and Leather

Or, layered up for in-between seasons…

Pastels have already become a massive hit this season; it might just be because they are such a massive change from the rock-chick, studded / sequinned looks that were so massive last season.

After a bit of window shopping last week, I saw that most of the high street stores have pretty pieces in dozens of shades; from off-white to dark pink and mink, and everything in-between. A lot of the looks / visual merchandising that featured the lighter pieces are put together with darker toned and black elements. I think this way of wearing pastels is a perfect for coming out of winter, before the weather warms up.

I’m not getting into that whole, not wearing white out of season thing, but some paler colours can look a bit to summery for winter. The fabrics that are used are also quite light; lace and sheer viscose need to be layered up with warmer fabrics in colder months.

So I mixed up these little cotton-lace culottes and polka-dot vest (worn backwards) with a leather jacket and boots, and a woollen scarf and cardigan. It also meant that the pastel colours of the shorts and vest was set off against the dark leather. The hand-knitted, Arran cardi mixed the two elements together perfectly.
