As soft snow starts to fall, fashion colors gravitate towards pale, delicate options for Fall/Winter 2014-15, as encapsulated in Citron Frost and Meringue Pink tones, say the trend analysts at Working well either in coordinated ensembles or as gentle contrasts against seasonal darks, both hues appeal with an effortless elegance for day or night.

Citron Frost



An icy take on lemon yellow, this calming pale hue works harmoniously next to cool and marl grays. Celine utilizes the color for a refined update on minimal outerwear design, as seen in voluminous wool silhouettes (think retro coats and unusual cropped overlayers). Meanwhile, Veronique Leroy opts for a ’40s-inspired belted coat, set off by a pure white underlayer and fringed glove.

Luxe material options make Citron Frost a versatile eveningwear choice too. Veronique Leroy revisits the wool outerwear, this time juxtaposing it with fluid silks. Chanel’s patent boot makes a sophisticated statement with metallic chains, as Chloé add interest to a simple shift with bejeweled gold netting.

Meringue Pink



The delicate hue of Meringue Pink resonates with cozy textures, making for a soft, feminine finish for day. Celine pair an wool cocoon coat with a matching clutch, while the color lends a ladylike feel to a cropped knit at Chanel. Christian Dior’s pink bag looks chic with a black stiletto placement.

Echoing the adaptability of Citron Frost, sophisticated fabrications update Meringue Pink tones with a sense of luxury. Sandrina Fasoli pairs matte with shine on a demure dress and collar accessory, while soft fur is refreshed with a feminine element on a hat at Chanel and loose-fit coat at Giambattista Valli.
