While I do love brights, a more subdued palette is my constant favorite. These picks incorporate etherial shades of foggy greens and blues with both florals and minimal lines for an understated femininity. Pantone calls this shade "grayed jade", and names it one of the top 10 colors for spring 2013. I call it the essence of an overcast day at the beach, immortalized by a polaroid snapshot.
