Dear Lucky: How Do I Wear Florals and Pastels in the Fall?

Q: My boyfriend thinks I’m weird to wear florals and pastels when it’s snowing. Are they too spring/summer? —Emma

A: Dear Emma,

Even in mid-May, you don’t wear a full Easter pastel getup, observed fashion director Anne Keane: “You have to mix pastels with bolder colors—and the same goes for florals. Do unexpected color combinations, a pale lavender top with a burgundy trouser, a dark with a light, a bright with a pastel, a dark with a floral.” Anne opened up the MSGM website: lots of darks, major florals, super-bright brights. “It takes nerve, but it’s so cute,” she observed.
