Pastels are once again front and center in the fashion world this spring. Runways this year have been filled with soft hues and toned down versions of your favorite bold colors. A lighter color palette has been in fashion since the 17th century when European women began favoring pale blues, pinks and yellows in their costumes. This trend carries straight through to today with light, happy styles most prominently on display during springtime.
Put away those heavy coats and sweaters and jump into some pastel shades this season.
Turn heads wherever you go in this gorgeous blue and white striped jumpsuit from A New Day. The wide-leg silhouette and cinched-in waist lend a feminine accent, while the soft drape at the bodice adds grace and a stylish flair to this outfit.
