Ahhh Phillip Lim, how you make every girl want to be a modern girl. With your clean lines, seemingly simple designs, and graciously feminine feel, Lim continues to amaze me with his endless vision and talent for flattering the female form in his 2012 Spring collectionTo put it simply, this guy knows what he’s doing!

Pastels that I would normally shy away from for the fear of looking like a walking popsicle, Lim somehow combines lilac and peach in a way that works. My top pick from the collection – the Chalk Floating Kite Tail Top – it’s just that right amount of sexy. I’d pair it with the Ash Removable Side Panel Trousers (love the small slit at the base of center front), or the Cuffed Flared Trousers in the vibrant Marigold from his Resort 2011 collection. Over the years I have accumulated a few 3.1 Phillip Lim pieces. He never disappoints and I am confident he never will!
