Or, at least, do you want to be?
When winter rolls through, I become instantly more attracted to iced-out pastels like sea-foam green and cornflower blue… I’ve always loved the ethereal look (a la Liv Tyler in Lord Of The Rings style), and every girl goes through the princess/goddess stage. Some of us just stay there longer.
I’ve used Polyvore (new addiction!) to create a couple looks that really exemplify the idea of winter-glam for me… The only thing I couldn’t include was the fabulous makeup palettes that accompany the beautiful, shimmery/shivery season.
I made one dress-styled outfit, and one with drool-worthy wide-leg pants and a beautiful chiffon top. Oh, and I couldn’t resist that light grey funnel-neck coat… I just LOVE funnel-neck ANYTHING! They look so cozy.
I stuck mainly with gray as the neutral because, well, gray is hot. Gray is the new black, white, and khaki. The Nine West peep-toe mary janes I paired with the dress are simply gorgeous, and I might have to run out and get them for myself.
Especially since those Nine West Luminous Pumps are on sale for $39.99!
I encourage you to experiment with this color palette over the season… A lot of people say/think they can’t wear icy pastels for whatever reason, but I say screw it! (Excuse me.) Give it a shot, anyway. Keep the tags on. If you really can’t stand yourself in a beautiful blue-toned, soft color – then maybe you’re right. But it at least deserves a try.
Try new things! But be careful, you might like it.
