Who said pastels were only meant for spring? Year after year we incorporate the same dark pallet into our fall wardrobes. You know the routine; gray, bordeaux, black, camel and the occasional purple and navy blue. However, winter 2014 has changed our perception of what the winter color pallet should look like. The must-wear trends this season are soft pastel shades. A sea of white, ivory, pink, lavender, mint green, sea green, peach, periwinkle and lemon chiffon have taken over the New York Garment district and fashionistas are quickly flooding the NYC streets. Take a look at the trend forecasts that hit the runway during Spring Fashion Week.

Last but not least a major staple in any winter wardrobe is the coat. It’s the first thing that speaks volumes about your style and personality when you hit the pavement. Pastel coats have made a bigger impact with this trend more so than the other winter pieces like the over-sized turtle neck and cropped pant. Whether you want to stay on trend with the rest of the color pallet or just feel comfortable enough to have splashes of pastel here and there; the coat is a great place to start.
