There are several major players in the colour palette for SS12, but one that can be adopted by most is Aquatic blue. This deep, rich blue is a great shade to enhance your wardrobe without being too dominating or overpowering. This is a great colour to add to your Spring wardrobe as it can be worn throughout the season, early on whilst the weather is still a bit on the chilly side it can be worn with darker jeans or thicker tights, but towards the latter of the season can be worn in spring dresses with bare legs or light, loose vest tops. This colour has longevity and so should definitely make an appearance in your wardrobe.
