It’s April 6th, which means … it’s Tartan Day! Yep, today is the official day to celebrate the delightful plaid pattern known as tartan.

Shopping Guide: 10 Pastel Pieces

I guess I may have been a little too presumptuous in my assertions of spring, because things in New York City have taken a turn for the cold. My (rather wise) father is ascribing it to an “Arctic blast,” which seems reasonable, so I’m going to assume that this is indeed a mere blip on the late-March radar. Given the weather, it may not seem high time for spring clothes, but really, is there ever a bad time for pastels? This year, trend-starters and garden-variety fashionistas alike are getting bold with brights and their diluted counterparts, so I have reason to believe that come early summer, Easter-egg shades will be inescapable. They’re the perfect way to inject some à la mode color into your look without taking the neon route and ease your style into something a little more warm-weather friendly. Behold, my selection of the prettiest pastel clothing and accessories, perfect for sweetening up your wardrobe this time of year.

Shopping Guide: 8 Nude Dresses With Pops Of Color

I’ve typically shied away from wearing nude tones, but I’m super into this new trend of mixing nudes with neons and brights. Designers like Christian Siriano did it on the runway for spring, and it seems like a great way to tone down what could be too much color. Pairing a nude shirt with a bold skirt is a great way to get more use out of both pieces. And if you’re dying to wear the trend right now, we’ve got eight dresses that perfectly combine nude tons with pops of bright color.
