No self-respecting Fashionable Person concerns themselves with what can or can’t be worn with what, or what is considered appropriate for any given situation, especially when there are cameras around. White pants in February. All black in July. Head-to-toe clashing prints. Gym socks with Miu Miu sandals. Pristine pantsuits with Birkenstocks. The list could go on forever because good fashion, as is the case with any art form, sustains itself on constant defiance of the norm. And right now, on the runways and in the streets of New York, no one’s letting a little thing called February get in the way of them wearing pastels. Baby blues, creamy beiges, soft greys, and of course, powder pinks have flooded what was once the domain of black and slightly lighter shades of black. And to be honest, they’re a welcome change. Here are a few of our favourite looks.
