S/S 2012 Trend : A Hint of Mint

Its the flavor on everyone's lips and the color on everyone's minds this season, mint. Most of us wouldn't leave home without a hint of mint on our breaths, but what about in our wardrobe?

The color mint falls into the pastel, sometimes bright color family and its very girlie yet sophisticated all at the same time. Not to be confused with its oft-times  gaudy cousin, lime, mint is a retro kid from the 50s that is still fresh, elegant and goes with everything.

This fun color makes no apologies for its friendly yet elusive flair. Its bright enough to be a fun-loving Spring/Summer Color but cool enough  to hang out with the Fall/Winter kids too. It's almost a neutral but not quite because it goes well with almost every other color but it also stands out. No blending in the crowd here. It is what it is and don't you forget it.

How will you incorporate mint into your wardrobe this Spring?
