Summer Pastels
Plan on incorporating plenty of pastels into your summer wardrobe. Courtesy of Zara

Put quite simply, pastels are synonymous with spring. Whether it's thanks to dyeing all of those Easter eggs or the fact that all of the flowers have finally sprung, the softer shades seem to be naturally associated with the season. But that doesn't mean you can't rock them once summer arrives. Actually, it's highly recommended.

Whether you favor lighter hues of pink, blue, green, purple, yellow, orange, etc., there's an almost infinite list of hot-weather fare to add to your closet. We're talking airy dresses, sleek skirts, linen tops, pleated pants and even a multicolored swimsuit via Versace. Accessories are getting in on the action, too. Tod's classic leather loafers look even better in pale pink. Mango's light yellow slingbacks are guaranteed to jazz up any ensemble. Prada's minty Galleria tote actually goes with almost everything. Trying to save some coin? Go with Wandler's lemon bag or Courrèges' baby blue circle creation.

Feel free to wear several selections simultaneously. There's absolutely nothing wrong with doubling, tripling or even quadrupling up on pastels. Whether you favor all the same shade or want to mix things up. Fortunately, we found pieces in every price range. From under $20 to several thousand dollars.

'Tis the season to embrace pastel colors, but these picks can also be layered in fall. Then when next summer rolls around you can wear them again because pastels will always be in fashion. Scroll down to discover your new summer wardrobe that you can put into rotation from now straight through early September.
