Here in Ohio, those last throes of winter dashed with precious few fair-weather days had us convinced we may never see color again. But fear not: since spring has officially sprung, we’re retraining our palate by reintroducing the pastels we saw so much of on the runway back in the fall, before we knew what a Polar Vortex was. With the days getting longer and temperatures warming, it seems only appropriate to reintroduce our closets to an array of color. Light hues brighten our moods and keep our wardrobes haute.
