the new pastel palette

Designers from Jason Wu to Phillip Lim are banking heavily on pastels this spring, churning out collections rife with sea-foam greens and creamy pinks. I am going to take a cue from Tank's Fashion Director Caroline Issa (above) and wear multiple sorbet shades all at once. The head-to-toe look is fantastically fresh and modern, but the key to pulling it off is mixing in edgier, grounding colors like black and red. The new pastel pieces I'm currently eyeing: J. Crew's persimmon jeans (I really think this pale pink will be spring's "it" denim color), an easy-to-throw-on  peach shift dress by Marni, and an endlessly versatile rosy cashmere sweater.

And there's no need to wait till spring to go pastel. These soft hues will revive your (getting-older-by-the-minute) winter wardrobe.
