The winter blues (a.k.a. grays and blacks) bringing down your wardrobe? We've got a solution for you: pastels. Powdery pinks, baby blues, and cool mints are trending, and they provide a pretty counterpoint to the edgy leather pants, tough moto boots, and other tomboy staples we rely on to get us through the season. Moreover, they're an instant mood lifter to combat the inevitable case of SAD. What's not to love?
If the idea of incorporating these quintessentially springtime shades into your wintry mix scares you, don't worry. We've asked Venezuelan-born, Miami-based Daniela Ramirez — the blogger behind Nany's Klozet — for her advice on wearing pastels year-round. (You better believe she's an expert, currently living in a modernist pastel paradise herself.) Here, she picks 10 delicately hued styles — all from Nordstrom Rack — that even the most chromophobic of us can embrace.
