Mint is the new black, and one of the most important colors for 2012. Colors fade almost as quickly as seasons change, but this hue is breaking through for a while. We have seen it on the runway, on celebrities and even on our Fashionistas since the early spring months. As we follow the mint green trend from summer into the fall, going green is the way to be. Mint is appearing with various shades on the runway, with dark green and classic military greens among many others in the color scheme.
Why is everyone so hot for such a cool color? It is the invigorating and refreshing feel with the perfect combination of delicacy and edginess. Almost anyone can pull this shade off, as its magical pigment looks fantastic with all hair colors and skin tones. This Fashionista's dark hair and skin contrast beautifully with the monochromatic pieces. The monochromatic combination provides this Fashionista leeway with the accessories she chooses, as they distract against the mint. She decided to rock the look with bold black, white and gold accessories. If you are still too shy for this daring look, try letting the color shine through your accessories rather than clothing. Mint totes, jewels and headscarves are a great way to ease your way into being a green-feen.
To downplay her outfit, this Fashionista pairs her skinny pants with flats and a messy up-do. This outfit can be easily transformed into a night-on-the-town look by replacing flats with nude pumps and tying the blouse into a crop-top, all paired with the perfect statement necklace.
