Pantone may have named Tangerine Tango the 2012 color of the year but I’ve been seeing an explosion of mint green that makes me think differently. While last year was all about colorblock, this year is all about neon brights and pastels. And the ruling pastel right now is mint green. I love the simplicity of the color, and how it seems to pair so well with neutrals and brights. The key to wearing mint is to keep the look classic and simple – you don’t want to mix a ton of trends with a soft, but standout color. As far as handbags go, this Chloé Madeleine Tote (in ‘Green Tea’) is a classic beauty in this haute hue. This smooth leather tote features double rolled handles, a front zip pocket with a logo zipper pull and tassel, and gold detail on the sides. It measures 12.5″ x 15″ x 5.5″ with a 5″ handle drop. There’s no need for extra bells and whistles with this bag. All you need is the simplicity of the tote with the green tone and you’re all set for Spring!
