To quote Julia Roberts’ character in Steel Magnolias, “my colors are blush and bashful.” Having a wardrobe full of pink pieces makes Spring and Summer dressing a dream, but if Gwyneth and I don’t find a way to make them work year-round we really won’t have a thing to wear. Balancing a few of our pink pieces with ones that “speak Fall” keeps us from being arrested for indecent exposure the other half of the year.
Even if you don’t believe in pink like we do, you’re bound to have a few favorite items meant for warmer months. We recommend pairing Summer staples like tissue tees and peeptoe pumps with Fall fundamentals like blazers, cords and tweed. You’ll wind up with a polished prep school look and a higher inventory for shopping in your closet.
