Sweeten your spring wardrobe with the cotton candy hue of the season.
From structured to flowy, and shimmery to matte, grown up pastels all but flooded the spring/summer 2014 runways. Among the pale, paler, and palest, we (and seemingly every buyer in the country) quickly noticed a strong preference for powder pink.
Aside from the sheer sartorial dizzy, we love this trend for it's surprising wearability. Simply think of pink as a femme power neutral or the new neon, adding pops of pastel to your favorite outfits.
Our picks for the season include a cheeky swimsuit, yarn-knit necklace, and more that elevate pink from pretty and preppy to clever and oh-so cool.
