Spring 2012 Color Trends: Seafoam Green

There’s something about seafoam green that just makes you smile and crave perfect spring days of 78 degrees with a slight breeze. Falling between cyan and green, the cool color was one of the prominent shades of green that dominated the Spring 2012 runways. Yves Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton were just two of the many designers that used spring green to give an energetic flare to nearly every category, including footwear, accessories and dresses. Join in on the fun and go seafoam for Spring!

Alice and Olivia’s cady cuffed shorts are spot on for a playful day of sunshine. The easy, classic silhouette looks fresh in the light green and can be amped up with a cool graphic tee featuring snow leopards. Dress up the tone by pairing with a navy blue button-up blouse. In either outfit, complete the look with tan heeled sandals or elastic paneled booties.

Get sultry with Rachel Roy’s drape back fitted dress. The stylish number can be taken from day to night with an easy change of shoes and accessories. Stay simple during the day and step into a pair of dusty nude asymmetrical sandals. Swap them out for a tough pair of pumps and an oversized clutch for date night.

For a little shoe flirting, French Sole’s suede snake-embossed loafers are a sweet tease. The chic footwear can bring a little burst to monochrome white outfits or harmonize with subtle neutrals. Team up white skinnies with a white blazer and complement the effortless look with the seafoam green flats.

Ready for the pool or beach? So is Basta Surf’s ruched pale green bikini. The sporty set is also reversible and can easily switch to fuschia. Rock the swimwear with a crochet cover up to let the shades peek through and complete with a graphic bag to carry sunscreen and towels.

To inject a hint of the carefree color into every spring outfit, Anya Hindmarch’s clutch will do the trick. The modern clutch is crafted from semi-opaque rubber and contrasted with a gold detachable chain. With its soft shade, the clutch can be an everyday essential matching with everything from LBDs to rugged jeans to crisp skirts.

Every wardrobe’s staple this spring should be a seafoam green top. Sundry features a long-sleeve cropped French terry top with a scooped neck and ribbed edges. Toss on a pair of colorblock shorts to skip in the sun or combine with a breezy sandy color maxi skirt.

If colorful shades are your thing, Elizabeth and James has you covered with sunnies in a semi-transparent spring green. The sunglasses boast gradient lenses that match with the frosty texture. Wear these all day, every sunny day.

Blending prim and proper with a bit of fun, Diane von Furstenberg’s Ruthanne skirt is sugary sexiness. Stay in the pastel family and colorblock with a powder blue racer back cami or doll up with a metallic silver crop top. Elongate the skirt with platform stilettos.

Go seafoam green with jewelry for spring. Rachel Leigh Jewelry’s eternity bracelet boasts a twisted band intertwining gold with the vibrant shade. Add on a gold watch and multilayer crystal bracelets to create some arm swag.
