Pastel-colored clothing, long the providence of spring, is having an unconventional moment this winter. Bored, perhaps, of traditional cold-weather options like black, brown and navy, designers are selling everything from sweaters to skirts to coats in pale, Easter-ish shades of blue, green and pink.
Head-to-toe pastels are a bold look, so for an easier take on the trend try balancing the color with a neutral such as tan or gray. In the gallery, shop our pastel picks—from super-sweet to barely-there—for every style and budget.
