Each passing season gives way to new trends and ideas. The fashionably forward sometimes manifest these new trends best by focusing on one single, easy-to-wear element. Designers ranging from Diane von Furstenberg to Banana Republic manage to attract attention on the runway and on the streets with a signature color that has turned heads and inspired many: mint. A cool yet bright color, mint can be worn as a staple or as a small accent. I personally love mint for its versatility and encompassing successful application for virtually every Fashionista and Fashionisto.
The Fashionista pictured above shows off her love of mint with ease. Her simple mint top is an ideal way to showcase the color’s eye-catching nature as the focus of her outfit. For other Fashionistas looking to purchase a similar outfit, check out Shopbop or Forever 21. Paired with dark-wash skinny jeans, this Fashionista put together a very casual look that can be worn during the day or at night. The gold bracelet and watch on her wrists are the perfect accessories for her signature bottoms. Fashionistos can find refreshing mint items such as this shirt of these pair of chino pants, both from ASOS.
If bold style isn’t your forte, mint is a great color to use on accessories. Fashionistas have the option of purchasing a classic clutch or a statement necklace. Fashionistos can be adventurous with these mint-green laces by Cole Haan. Although daring, mint accessories are subtle enough to be worn without fear of going overboard. When dressing with mint in mind, treat this pastel as you would a gray or nude neutral.
This exciting color isn’t limited to just the spring and summer seasons. Use mint as a way to freshen up your style this fall and keep heads turning on your campus.
