Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.
Remember back when I blogged about mint green (or seafoam) in September? I predicted on Instagram that it would be the colour to watch come Spring 2013. Well the fashion pros are putting this colour front and center and in a category called 'Chalky Pastels' pretty fancy term, basically a pastel with a white base. I'm loving mint green because it is fresh and goes well with gold or silver accessories and it balances well with neutrals which will allow the palette to be clean and sophisticated; I'm also loving it with coral or neon peach as a contrast.
I love the damask texture in the leggings which is a tribute to the baroque trend, subtle but effective. I tied in the curves of the design with the delicacy of a silk ruffled camisole (gotta love Forever 21 for their affordable silks ;)
Kept the nails nude and the make-up light so they wouldn't compete with the soft colours.
- Leggings : Tuscany Boutique could not source the one pictured but this could work or this metallic version
- Silk Ruffle Blouse: Forever 21 no longer available but this could work
- Blazer: Old, try this
- Necklace : BCBG, No longer available, try this.
- On My Lips: Pink liner topped with MAC's gloss 'On The Scene'
Here are some affordable pieces that will help you to incorprate this hot colour in your Spring/Summer wardrobe:
