Dior S/S 2012
If you loved Chanel’s ‘Jade’ a few seasons ago, then you’ll love Dior’s ‘Waterlily’, a soft pastel leafy green that reminds me of my favourite ice cream flavour, pistachio. You’ll be seeing many iterations of this shade, from Louis Vuitton’s frothy frocks to desaturated denim from GAP (check out my tips on how to wear pastels on ELLEcanada.com).
Dior ‘Waterlily’ ($24 at Holt Renfrew)
Aside from Dior’s shimmery ‘Waterlily’, there are a couple of other irresistible pistachio shades. Essie’s ‘Navigate Her’ takes on a more vibrant candy approach to the pastel hue. And, on the more neutral end of things, Butter’s ‘Bossy Boots’ (I love the name!) provides a grey-ish alternative on the colour.
