Spring is a time of rebirth. There’s suddenly a warm, gentle feeling in the breeze, birds begin to chirp, and flowers begin to bloom. If you’re like me and don’t necessarily love the winter, it feels like a relief to see the leaves beginning to grow back on the trees, a sure sign that warm weather is on the way. And what better way to celebrate rebirth than with a fresh pop of color? This spring, designers are taking to a particular shade of green. The runway is loving a citrusy shade of lime green, as seen below in the 2013 collections of Christopher Kane and Gucci.
And guess what? The swimwear world is loving this happy shade of green as well. L*Space in particular has some amazing pieces in their 2013 collection that features this color. Check out the Mad Mesh Bikini and the Audrey Citrus Foxy Bikini (featured in Sports Illustrated!), below.
What else does the fashion on the runway have in common with fashion in the swimwear world? Both are not afraid to mix this fresh lime shade with a color that we all love: army green! Marissa Webb pairs a bright, spring green ensemble with a need-to-have-it army green blazer. She must have been reading L*Space’s mind, because their Citrus Mesh Bikini features a halter lime green top that has awesome fringe detail with a two-toned bottom featuring the same lime green and army green mesh detail. Love this color combo!
