Minty fresh: icy green is one of spring's hottest hues

Seafoam, glacier, ice, mint…there are dozens of names for the icy pale green that is so “in” for spring 2012. No matter what you call it, it’s a hue you’ll want as you begin shopping for the new season. In shades that range from almost-white (like the gorgeous Equipment top below) to cool shades reminiscent of the sea, mint green is complimentary to many skin tones, making it the perfect starting point if you’re ready to try color–or colorblocking–for the first time. Pair it with practically anything, from denim for weekend to suiting fabrics for work. Like it’s namesake, mint is a refreshing addition to your spring wardrobe.
