Inspired By: Pastel Shell

When we think of fall transition, we typically shift to richer, deeper colors. While that’s true, we can’t help but be gravitated towards the refreshing trend of fall outerwear done in soft, dusty pastel hues. It just lightens up our standard fall palette so nicely and with minimal effort.

There’s just something a bit unexpected yet approachable about throwing on a pale coat over your fall outfits. Today’s street style inspiration does just that with a subdued blush-colored trench over her dark outfit.

Check out our version of this fresh take on early fall outerwear:
