    Like April showers, May flowers, and hay fever, it's a rite of spring to trade winter's moody hues for a fresh, new palette. For the last few years, that's meant pastels — don't get us wrong, we love those dreamy, light-as-air shades, but in moderation (only a My Little Pony should wear that much baby blue).

    Luckily, this year's signature colors are more edgy than "Eggshell." Instead of mint green and cotton-candy pink, think rich fuschia, vibrant blue, and roaring Rio red (yep, you can wear crimson in spring!).

    To guide you through the season, we partnered with the color experts at Essie to show you our six favorite, must-have spring shades, and the perfect outfits that'll go with them. Bust out those rose, lilac, and blue-tinted glasses — there's a spring inspiration overload, straight ahead!
