March is already here, but it certainly doesn't feel like it outside. Winter is dragging its feet like a child throwing a temper tantrum at the mall, and we're so over it. In fact, we refuse to force our wardrobes to cater to the season's every whim now that spring's right around the corner. So, we're moving on from the cold-weather outfits we've been wearing since November. And, Stella McCartney's pastel-infused resort '14 collection — you're probably already familiar with this embellished dress from the same line — happens to be a well of transitional-dressing inspiration.
Start incorporating the delicate hues into your outfits now. You'll be hard-pressed to find something springier than this soft, dandelion-yellow coat. (You can also try mints, blushes, or baby blues for the same effect.) And, since this season is all about wearing pastels head-to-toe, team your boyfriend-fit topper with powder-pink pants and tonal accessories for a look that's totally chic without feeling overly try-too-hard. The temperatures will follow suit — eventually.
