From weddings to prom to everyday fashion, mint green was huge on the runway last year which means for 2013 it will be EVERYWHERE! For what it’s worth, here’s our take on doing up the mint in the most delicious ways possible:
For Weddings. Mint is a soft and delicate color, and will be overwhelmed by too much boldness on any front. Keep your wedding decor, flowers, dresses, etc. simple and clean, and .
Don’t want to overdo the minty goodness? Balance your mint green with a bright accent color, like sunny yellow or lively coral, or if you really want to go for the, ahem, bold, try mint with fabulous poppy red.
For Evening Wear. Mint green evening wear – who’d have thought? But pastels are hot for events like prom and homecoming, and when it comes to pastels, right now mint is at the top of the heap. Softness is key – let the color take the spotlight, and keep your accessories simple.
So what color shoes does one wear with a mint green dress? We’re all about silver metallic, nude, or – if you’re looking to put bling SOMEWHERE – a sparkly crystal-laden pump.
For Every Day Wear. To incorporate mint into your current everyday wardrobe, we’re ALL about the accessories. Bold statement necklaces with mint at center stage (especially mint enamel against yellow gold – yum!), a mint clutch, pretty mint pumps, or a skinny mint patent belt.
While mint works with any neutral, don’t be afraid to pair it with some fabulous color – we love mint with yellow, a cool red, cobalt blue, pastel pink … well, you get the picture!
