As warmer weather approaches and daylight hours increase, this year is set to see an all-time-high case of spring fever. And with it comes the opportunity to break out pieces from your closet that you likely haven’t worn while spending the last year primarily at home. The color palette we expect to see everywhere this season? Pastels.

Sure, pastel colors may be about as unique to spring as floral prints, but the sweet tones feel appropriately optimistic for this moment. There’s no one singular way to wear the soft hues for the months ahead. In fact, everything from activewear to accessories has gotten a pastel makeover in time for spring’s return. Below, we've styled 11 pastel outfits to wear this season.

Quilted Lilac

This spring, we're swapping our puffer coats for quilted jackets, particularly this lilac one from The Frankie Shop. For those days when it's still a little chilly, pair it with Wilfred's beloved vegan leather pants and top it off with coordinating sunglasses from Raie.

Pistachio Patchwork

Pastels don't always need to be soft and dainty. If you're looking to liven things up, team Wray's pistachio crop top with Another Girl's vibrant patchwork jacket and a pair of long printed shorts.

Shades of Yellow

Looking for a pretty, flowing dress, you can easily toss on at least three times a week? Add this one to your closet ASAP. Of course, we love a color-coordinated moment, and this textured bag from Núnoo brings it.

Cottagecore Cowgirl

Dôen is known for its bucolic designs and this mini nap dress is the perfect piece to pair with soft pastel hues. Add a pair of baby blue western boots and marbled cotton candy sunglasses for an outfit you'll end up wearing over and over again.

A Spring Set

If you're still living in loungewear, we can't blame you. This collared crewneck and short set screams "spring"—and also "be nice," a friendly reminder for everyone as we go out and embrace the warmer weather. Add a pop of mint with a pair of mules.

Nikes and Dickies

You can't go wrong with a pair of Dickies. Bring out the spring florals in a satin crop top and a fresh pair of white kicks.

Y2K Baby (Blue)

Outfit 7

The Y2K renaissance is very much here, so why not lean into it? Alo Yoga's flared baby blue leggings give off the faux whale tale popularized in the early aughts. The look wouldn't be complete without a thong sandal and rhinestoned tank top.

The Going-Out Skirt

Nia's corset tank is an easy way to get the appearance of that classic corset boning without the risk of internal injuries. Sure, you could elevate a pair of sweatpants with the tank, but why not make it a true Going Out Look with a super-sparkly mini skirt?

Rhinestones and Butterflies

The Dua Lipa Moment
