Richie wore a lot of pastel colors throughout the show. He wore letterman jackets and cardigans displaying his school colors, which started with light blue in the beginning and eventually changed to red. I've never been a huge fan of pastels, but last month I got the cutest off-the-shoulder light tan shirt and it has become my favorite, so here's to new fashion risks in 2011 and Richie's style is the way to start! Even if it comes in smaller doses, like shoes. I'm going to start including pastels here and there, until I find the ones that work and completely cross off the ones that don't.
And of course, Richie in argyle! I still don't know how I feel about this. Richie pulls it off because it's his style. This may be too preppy for me, but never say never. I figured I can combine preppy argyle with a studded bag and a vintage looking ring and put some edge into the whole look.
