Soft Serve: 15 Edgy Pastel Pieces That Have Us Craving Spring Temps

Like tulips, the Easter bunny, and seasonal allergies, pastel colors are a rite of spring. But when was the last time you saw an icy-hued dress or a paler-than-pale pump and thought, "Wow, that looks rad!" Yeah — exactly.
But, we're on a mission to prove that light shades can indeed be cool — downright edgy, actually. Don't believe us? We've rounded up everything from statement bags to so-sick wedges to show you that the colors normally reserved for a nursery can look right at home in your closet. Read on as we spin the color wheel and show you a perfect palette of new, anything-but-angelic spring essentials.
