Pastels are clearly having a moment on the runways — thanks to designers like Rebecca Taylor, Rodarte, and Karen Walker — so needless to say, we're fully embracing our girlie side this Spring. With Easter just a few weeks away, we can't think of a reason not to jump-start the candy-colored season with a soft lemon shift, pretty lilac top, or baby blue dress. Tip: since pastel hues tend to have a powdery finish to them, make sure to choose a color that complements your skin tone. Blue and lilac are flattering on most skin tones, while yellow and coral hues tend to be a little trickier. If you're still a little nervous about trying out the trend, try injecting small pops of it via shoes, jewelry, and handbags before you dive headfirst into the trend. We promise there's something to suit everyone inside — click through to see and shop our top 17 pretty pastel picks now.
