If the thought of settling in for several weeks of winter is getting you down, you can perk up your wardrobe and your soul with a pretty pastel sweater.
Forget having to wear black, navy, gray and burgundy in January and February. All of a sudden there are pink, blue, yellow, mint green and peachy colored sweaters overflowing in stores. In fact, it almost feels like Easter has arrived early!
Here are a few of my favorites pastel sweaters from chunky knits to ribbed pullovers, the softest, prettiest cashmere sweaters, and more!
1. Buttoned Up Blue
I love that you can look polished and feel cozy at the same time in this cloud blue-button trim sweater. I first noticed this style a couple of years ago when a high-end designer debuted the look. Now there are many affordable versions of it, such as this one, so everyone can enjoy .
2. Mellow Yellow
Pastels are definitely the new wave of fashion this winter judging by this lemony drop shoulder sweater. This pop of yellow on a cold winter day is cheery and warm. The relaxed silhouette and ribbed cuffs give you a laid-back, sporty look that makes me want to dive in and snuggle up.
3. Pink Diamond
Diamonds are forever. This classic argyle sweater with its eye-catching diamond pattern is reinvented once again- this time in the prettiest pastel pink color. Pink is a beautiful color to wear over 40 because it adds a nice blush to your cheeks and give you a youthful glow. No need to go out in the cold to get pink cheeks!
4. Minty Green
This pretty mint green shade turns this simple cashmere turtleneck sweater into a knockout wardrobe staple. This is a great transitional piece that you can wear now and well into the spring.
5. Just Peachy
This soft cropped peach cardigan sweater with its oversize buttons and wide V-neckline is slouchy and sexy. The cropped waist looks fab gently tucked in. This sweater is a very feminine way to add some magic to your winter wardrobe.
6. Lovely Lilac
This lovely lilac sweater is too glamorous to resist. It’s delicate pointelle yoke neckline, and pretty puff sleeves give it a graceful, feminine look. The lilac looks lovely worn with high contrast dark jeans, but would also look stunning with white jeans too.
7. Pastel Blocks
When you can’t decide which pastel you like best, this cool stripe sweater is a good solution. Thick bands of icy green, yellow, cream, ivory, and soft taupe are a cutting edge color combination.
Do you like wearing pastels in winter, or do you only wear them in summer? Which of these sweaters is your favorite?
