1.) The mint green color has quite a soothing effect to it on one's eyes.
2.) Pastels have a tendency of looking fresh and young but also sophisticated. They can give just the right amount of pop to a neutral outfit without looking super flashy. And mint green is the pastel hue which is on the top of the game at the moment.
The 5 S wardrobe -
So which all mint green pieces should definitely be in your wardrobe? I believe you should have the 5 S's of mint green clothing – Sweater, Satchel, Statement, Skirt, Sundress.
Oversized Sweater –
Winters are usually dominated by dull colors like grey, brown, black and navy. A mint green sweater brings in just the right amount of happy to a dull looking winter.
How to wear it? Oversized sweaters and cut off shorts are comfortable and feminine, and if the sweater is mint green, they check the stylish mark too. This look is perfect for a casual trip to the grocery store or night-in with your friends. To amp up the look, you can sport the sweater with black or blue skinny jeans or a neutral colored plain bodycon dress and heels. The oversized sweater in itself is quite overwhelming, so go easier on the accessories.
For those who do not know it, a satchel is a small bag, often having a shoulder strap, usually used to carry books, but in recent times has become quite a fashion sensation and is used by a lot as a purse. A mint green satchel is a must have because it gives a much needed twist to the usual brown or black leather satchel. It can be worn with anything and everything, but would be a better fit on a neutral outfit, as it would make your bag, the center of attention.
Whether it’s a necklace, a ring, earrings or a bracelet, a statement piece can do wonders in transforming an outfit from blah to ooh-la-la. If you are a true fashionista, your jewelry box should be filled with these pieces.
How to wear it? Statement pieces are bold, and speak for themselves, so make sure you wear only a single piece at a time, to prevent yourself and others from the power struggle between the pieces. Also, if you have not already registered this in your head, mint green looks amazing with neutral tones, so try a black and white outfit, with a chunky mint green necklace and see the magic happen. But if you are a colorful person, and are adamant on keeping an arm’s distance from the neutrals then you can wear your statement with a bright pink or orange outfit. These colors compliment the green hue perfectly.
A pleated skirt is flowy and feminine, and the mint color gives it the feeling of a sea breeze. It is the poster piece for a ‘girly’ girl and is being adorned by celebrities and fashion bloggers around the globe.
How to wear it? My perfect outfit containing a pleated skirt will definitely have a shirt, cherry red lips, boots and of course a slim belt. But you can also wear a pleated skirt with a t-shirt and a blazer for a more casual yet trendy look.
A pretty light colored sundress is perfect for a bright lovely day. And which better color to have it in, than mint green. A sundress is fun and flirty and can be dressed up or down according to your preference.
How to wear it? One specific thing that I would prefer with a mint green sundress is a slim, dark colored belt. It gives a break to the monotony of the color. If you want to take a casual approach, you can wear the dress with belle flats or loafers and a simple cardigan. If you want to dress it up a little, then go for heels and accessorize it with a bunch of bracelets or beautiful necklace. One thing you can do to make your outfit interesting is, let your shoes, bag and accessories be of a specific neon color. The contrast between the colors makes this outfit stand out without looking disturbing.
