SS2012 Trend Report: Pastels

I guess everyone, who has even the slightest interest in fashion already knows that pastels are gonna be huge this spring! I've been checking out the ss12 collections of  my favorite designers (and some not so favorite), almost all of them incorporate pale yellow, cotton candy pink, lavender and subtle blue garments. While I'm not a fan of girly ensembles at Louis Vuitton and Prada, I love the Phillim Lim's and Isabel Marant's take on this trend. I've included the collages of the outfits that I find the most wearable and chic from several ss12 rtw collections. Tell me what you think!
