As the temperatures soar, we thought this refreshing icy cool trend would help you bear the heat a bit better. Pastel shades are generally a big trend this season, but mint seems to be everybody’s favourite hue. This frosty shade is a lovely mix between blue and green and gives off a light airy vibe. We’re seeing it on everything from clothes, shoes and accessories to handbags as well! You’re sure to spot this colour everywhere you look, from the 2012 runway collections to the Oscars’ red carpet. We’ve seen everyone from Lady Gaga and Beyonce to Bérénice Bejo in mint this season.
Designers have used mint on the runway extensively this spring. Check out Elie Saab, Calvin Klein, Paige, Zara and Topshop. Mint button-up silky blouses, cute ballet flats, vests, bangles and even skinny jeans are hot favourites. Colourful sunglasses are always unexpected and fun. Nail colour in minty shades is a great option for those who fear to wear too much of the colour.
Mint pairs well with many colours, but we love how it looks with yellow, pink and teal. And if that’s too much colour for you then wear it with white for an effortlessly chic look. The colour also works great with neutrals like black and beige. And in its lightest shade it works as a neutral itself! Mint adds a fresh pop to any outfit and we love the monochromatic mint-on-mint look, which isn’t too overpowering in the soft pastel hues.
