I wouldn't say I'm particularly drawn to pastel/Easter hues, but it got me thinking -- why not wear such light, subtle hues in the dark days of winter?  What makes a look so stylish is an understanding of opposites -- wearing a layered summer dress for winter, a tough moto jacket and boots with a feminine skirt or dress. I daresay pastel colors can almost be called rebellious when worn in winter -- oh the scandal!

Instead of Sunday dresses, why not have a wooly bubblegum pink or minty blue coat? Scarves and hats are everywhere, but instead of getting something to match your black/gray/neutral winter coat, get something that will frame your face in color. And don't forget your feet -- how about a pair of lemon-yellow loafers? However you wear or accessorize these anti-freeze colors, use the Power of Pastels to fight through the winter grays.
