Pink and its Pastel Siblings

Along with floral prints and appliques, pastels are reinforcing the decisively feminine runway/retail trends this spring. Pastel pink is the season’s “it” color, with other Easter egg hues trailing not far behind. From the catwalk to high street, these colors are making bold waves, and often in monochromatic sets. Our favorite look? Pastel outerwear!
