There's nothing better than soft colors that do a lot of talking. Any and all pieces of pastel colored outerwear are must-have wardrobe staples for the upcoming seasons. Brands such as Acne Studios, Jacquemus, and more have created a trend of pastel colored outerwear pieces that are pleasing to the eye and complimenting to the body. Pastels are for the chic, delicate, and classy young ladies that wants to add more color to their closet without looking too vibrant. Take a look at how it's done!

For the fall, winter, and early spring seasons, wool is a nice choice of fabric to keep an eye out for. Fortunately, Mood has a great selection of pastel shades in wool fabric and other fabric types that you can use to create your own outerwear pieces or other clothing pieces if desired.

Leather has always been a wardrobe staple since earlier generations and still continues to captivate people even today. You can never go wrong with a little bit of grunge by rocking these dark yet attractive outerwear pieces. Leather jackets can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion which makes them an ultimate add on to your outfit! Style them with blue jeans and a pair of black heels or pair the leather jacket with a skirt and some sandals just like the model below! Leather jackets provide the sophistication that all ladies and gentlemen desire while also giving off alluring qualities to make one stand out.

Leather is one of the most creative and unique types of fabric that one can use to create a stunning piece of outerwear. From Croc embossed leather to patent leather and more, the options are endless.

Both are definitely iconic fabrics that have been featured on the runway multiple times and even recently! Take a look at how designers are styling plaid and tweed nowadays!
