Why pastel will help you bring your edge back.

Found on Pinterest.

When it comes to looking killer, you've gotta be a little rebellious. New York doesn't do boring and whenever I get antsy about pushing my style, I look for subtle ways of doing it that make a big impact. You don't want to completely change who you are for the sake of a wow factor (that's so LA). You need to infuse new items in your closet like a sneaky rat running off with your slice of pizza on the subway platform (that's so NYC). What I'm saying is you make a statement all the while acting like you've been wearing it all your life. And what says rebellion and fuck you haters like wearing pastel in the fall? The way to pull it off is by wearing it with all of the black and grey shit you're already rocking rn. Basically the key is to let the pastel part be the only spring-esque thing you have on. Like the middle finger of your look. Everything else just stays standard low key fall/winter. Not getting it? Here's three looks to help you push the norm and keep 'em guessing.
