Pastel Turtle

Another trick in making springtime dressing a breeze is to mix darker colours with pastels. I realize it kind of goes against some people's instincts, but I swear by it! In today's look, I paired my classic black turtle neck with baby blue trousers and a chartreuse belt. I also added black ankle booties and a navy coat for the outside look. The hints of pastel lighten the look and make it seem less "winterized", although I wear a lot of these pieces during the winter. Overall, the look is less heavy and stuffy, the blue pants are a breath of fresh air! The ankle length is also nice as it hints to warmer temperatures without committing to shorter hemlines and bare legs. I'm testing the waters without fully jumping in! I will be patient, spring is on its way, let's not rush it. There will be plenty of opportunities to wear my brightly coloured clothing once more. For now, I will be content with getting a little bit more wear out of some winter staples.
