How to Wear Mint Green


When we’re not talking white this spring, we’re talking about bold brights. And when it’s not bold brights, we’re on to pale pastels. In short: spring’s got a thing for cheery color. One that’s making a big splash: mint green. Spotted on runways and trickling into What’s New, the ice cream shade has come a long way since its ’60s heyday, which raises the question: How does one go about making this retro color feel totally today?

Take your cues from the DVF runway (pictured) and go with a tailored look paired back to mixed neutrals, or make yours a dressed-up casual approach with mint Paige jeans and a crisp blouse. The truly forward among us will appreciate the monochromatic look, where a mint blouse styled back to pistachio pants is eye-catching without going over the top. Look only as far as this brilliantly styled ensemble (if I may brag up our stylists for a moment) featuring A.L.C. by Andrea Lieberman for proof.
