Pretty pastels have made a comeback, coating everything from the trench coats at Burberry to the models’ hair at Proenza Schouler. Like cotton candy, sorbet, and Easter eggs, pastel clothing is sure to add some joy to your wardrobe.

This week we’re channeling the delicate outfits worn by Mia Farrow as Daisy in The Great Gatsby. Feminine they may be, but these new pastels need not be worn by a shrinking violet at grandma’s tea party.

We’ve found military jackets, platform heels, and—for the subtle among us—nail polish, all in girlie pastels hues, all available in Toronto. First up, the summer’s sweetest shoe.
