Spring 2012 Trend: Mint

Spring is going to be here in less than a month, in 21 days to be exact! To mark this countdown, here is some inspiration from spring trends, translated into affordable and accessible items, whether for a full or subtle look.

  • The look: Mint is a very delicate and feminine hue, but I think it can also look very modern if the item is a solid, minimalist piece. Avoid lace for a more contemporary look. 

  • Pair with: To me, mint almost acts as a neutral, so it's pretty easy to wear. Looks great with white, other neutrals (I love the navy + mint combo) or other pastels, if you are a little more adventurous.

  • Where to find: Zara has really adopted this trend, offering a wide range of mint items. Other retailers do have a lot of pastels, but mint is harder to find, even at stores like H&M and Forever21. Topshop also offers some mint items, available online if you are in Montreal area.
