When your heart says “spring” but your appendages say “winter”, embracing warm-weather colors in fabrics that are built for colder weather is a happy medium. This season faded, chalky hues (a.k.a. pastels) are having a moment. Part Ivy League prep, part “Miami Vice”, these soft colors give your go-to layered looks a strange and unexpected twist.
