Reach for colorful pastel clothes to perk up your wardrobe and brighten your mood
Get a jump on spring with a classic peacoat redone in seafoam green, a shade that works especially well with these pale salmon jeans. A basic striped boatneck tee adds a graphic touch while the tan scarf lets this outfit shine.
Balance bold printed jeans with a neutral-tone sweater and a soft pink puffer vest. (If skinny pants make you self-concious, pair them with a tunic that hits midthigh instead.) Finish with a pair of suede oxfords with pink soles--the season's "It" shoe.
Instead of reaching for basic blue jeans, try courdoroys in a fresh shade of lilac. Top them with a billowy blue chiffon blouse and a studded, nubby linen blazer for a chic outfit that transitions easily from day to night.
A sleek, solid aqua sheath balances a boxy patterned poncho sweater beautifully in this sophisticated weekend look.
Give your classic pieces a makeover. A bit of chambray peeking out from the neckline and hem of a chunky knit gives this sweater-and-skirt combo a casual twist. A cotton turtleneck can help keep you warm when the temperature drops.
Layer a lightweight, candy-hued cardigan under a heavier one, like this cable-knit style. One boosts the coziness quotient; the other adds a bit of color to brighten the neutral ensemble.
Add shimmer and sophistication to casual pieces with a gold-accented cardigan in an easy-to-wear peach shade. This one plays
up the print of the blouse underneath, and the longer length offers extra coverage.
