13 Pastel Dresses To Keep Your Summer Sweet

Summer whites and LBDs have their places in the sun (literally), but, for just a sec, we're asking them to move over and make room for another seasonal palette: pastels. Yes, these muted shades have been around since Easter, but just 'cuz the bunny's come and gone, there's no reason you can't rock these subtle hues all summer long.
And, hey, though we've got 13 awesome dress options to add to your closet, don't just take our word for it. 3.1 Phillip Lim, Elizabeth and James, and A.P.C. agree that your warm-weather wardrobe should pay serious attention to Pantone's sweeter shades, and they're serving up the frocks to prove it. Baby blue, pale pink, and nursery yellow aren't so infantile anymore—click through for lots of ways to make them all grown up this season.
