Feeling Cool In Cool Fashion Colors | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aWelcome to a new episode of my Friday Fashion.
All the pastel spring/summer colors of this year are creeping up in my wardrobe and I am letting them for the first time. Men and women will wear pastel colors indifferently as pink (Quartz) is a new color for men and light blue (Serenity) for women, or both together to create a hipster combination for both sexes. It is a symbolic color combination that represents what is going on in our culture. (Click on each photo to view it larger).

Pink for men seems a new extravagance to mark the duality of society, so it has been said, but those of us who have studied History of Costume know that in 1500-1700 men wore pink ruffled shirts under a jerkin and women wore intricate embroidered light blue dresses. These two unisex pastels were the most common of the pastels gamma that men and women used in that era interchangeably.

I am balancing and calming my year with pastel colors compatible with my skin tone that will also care for my wellness and tranquility. Rose Quartz is a gentle tone, Blue Serenity echoes a serene sky, Lint or green tone brings a closer attachment to earth.

The light colors of 2016 challenge traditional perceptions of color association, which I would have not done in the past. I will try anything and challenge my thoughts before saying: “It’s not for me” and after realizing I might not like it much, at least I will feel cooler  in cool colors this spring and summer. The floral capelet is lightweight and versatile, the two layers allow it to wear as a large scarf, as a shoulder wrap. The large flower in the waist turns into a belt and a necklace, as necessity occurs. The sweet flower bag is new, just arrived and matches well with the new color scheme.

Just remember that your personal colors need to be revised every couple of years, as we add texture, new coloration and age to our skin.
Enjoy a cool summer in cool colors. Ciao,
Valentina
