From Runway to Walkway: How to Wear the 6 Hottest Colors of the Season
1. Pale Rose
Pale rose is a very soft hue, and slightly dustier than light/baby pink. I have already done a pale rose mix n’ match outfit inspired by Keira Knightley’s Oscar 2015 gown in my older article. You can check that out here. But here’s more in this ultra-feminine color trend! If you want it to be very candy-like, pair it with reds. And if you wanna play safe with your color choices, I recommend pairing this with black or grey to balance out its femininity. Feminininity…. Femininininini…..-ty. Infinity. (What am I doing?)

2. Dusty Lavender
The purples usually make their trend in the Fall-Winter collections as amethyst or dark purple, but this year, a lightly dusty lavender is super in! Yet another very feminine color, dusty lavender is purple, but with subtle grey tones intermingled with a very light violet. Almost so it reminds you of blueberry gelato. Yum! I recommend wearing this gelato-ish color with beige or grey. Or even navy blue.
