One of the best ways to start transitioning your wardrobe is simply through new combinations of color. Take your springy pastels, lilac in this case, and tone them down with navy for a delightful ease into fall. You can even create a casual version of this color combo with an old chambray shirt you already have in your closet. Gold accessories add polish while still keeping your look relaxed.
Of course, you can also just as easily pair last fall's pastel knits with this summer's navy shorts. I have enjoyed pairing this sweater with these shorts (on sale!) for a chic take on weekend wear and a good mix of high and low!
Do this color combo appeal to you? Or are you still addicted to whites and brights?
