Five Ways to Wear Mint


1. Mellow mint with a pattern:
If solid mint is a little too sweet, try it mixed into a print. It looks especially striking when paired with coral, black, white or gray.

Pair the patterned piece with a solids or liven up a basic outfit with a mint print scarf or hat.

2. Pair it with other pastels:
Color block mint with other pastels like rose, lavender or yellow for a fresh look that’s easy to wear.

Just keep the intensity of the color similar and make sure to wear the lighter of the two colors on the part of the body that should be emphasized.

3. Wear a vintage shape:
A solid mint dress in a figure-flattering, retro shape looks surprisingly modern.

Pair it with nude shoes or flat sandals, minimal accessories and a touch of a tan for an easy summer look.

4. Try the sweet shade in a slouchy shape for a modern touch:
Mint looks cool and casual in a tissue thin T-shirt or tank.

Pair it easy pieces like denim shorts or a maxi skirt for a refreshingly simple silhouette.

5. Dip your toe in the water with mint accessories:
Still on the fence about mint? Then start in small doses.

Try a pretty necklace or a handbag for a pop of color.
