It is that time of year again! Leaves are falling, temperatures are dropping and the summer's bright colors are being replaced with more subdued fall hues. Jewel tones such as fuscia, teal and mustard are popping up on the scene, but the real showstoppers this season are the pretty pastels; mellow yellow, pale pink and lust-worthy lavender are all the rage this season, softening up any outfit and adding a bit glam to fall's transitional weather.

Though autumn ushers in pumpkin spice lattes and brand new classes, it also introduces a completely new accessories selection. Today's Fashionista, Emily, proves she is cozying up to the idea of pastel palettes for fall's cooler days. Sporting a neutral outfit of black, white and beige, Emily softens up her look with a mint green bow, a detail that compliments her look in a delicate and feminine way. I love the sugary and buttery feel of pastels, and though it is hard to stay fashion-focused in the mediocre weather, Emily's bow provides a sweetness that makes this trend hard to resist!

When dabbling with pastel accessories, it is important to keep the rest of your outfit simple and subtle. Paired with luxurious metallics, or even a hint of python, these light colors will brighten up your wardrobe in a beautiful and unique way.

Spotted: Pastels were recently seen on Zac Posen and Rodarte's 2012 ready-to-wear shows.
