By now you know that mint green is the color of spring 2013, spotted on the runway at Donna Karan and DVF, on A-listers like Diane Kruger and Taylor Swift, and now, in Gilt’s Spring Trend Alert sale. Starting at noon today, we’ve got a slew of items in the It-hue, and three unexpectedly chic ways to incorporate it into your spring wardrobe:
1. Go monocrhome: If you’re going to go for it this season, why not go for it? Layering a blouse, sweater, and pants in one color family has amazingly slimming effects, and one punch of another color–like these perfectly complementary violet heels–is the ideal finishing touch.
2. Pair it with another pastel: April is high time to show off the most feminine colors in your closet, and nothing evokes the ladylike springtime look better than multiple pastels. Throw some denim in the mix to balance out the saccharine factor.
3. Add black for a seamless seasonal transition: Still too chilly to properly rock pastels where you live? Temper them by adding in black pieces, like this cool motorcycle jacket and tights.
