How to Wear Mint for Spring Summer 2012

March 1, 2012: I can't cover the Spring & Summer 2012 color trends without highlighting at least one lighter hue :-) Icy shades and pastels are on the top of this season's colors, but I personally think mint is the sweetest color that showcases versatility. This icy mix of light blue and green shade gives off a light and airy feel to your look. A nice break from the vibrant brights highlighted in the previous pages.

If you want to make the most of your buck then you might want to buy mint-colored tops and tees - they go well with your blue denim shorts, white jeans and also your white skirts. If you prefer a trendier chic look try a pair of pants or a blazer in mint. A flowing sun dress can also bring out the Goddess-chic within you.

This frosty-pale shade of blue-green looks fabulous on Cool, Clear and Deep. But you can adjust it to your coloring so that you'll look good in it by selecting a mint color that leans more on green (for warm coloring) or blue (best on cool and light coloring).

Mint looks good with:

Turquoise, pale blue, chocolate brown, white, light to medium yellow, other icy pastels

I'm all for monochromatic color combos (ie. mint green with nudes) because of their sleek, soothing look. I can definitely see it with cream crochet lace shorts and a pair of nude sandals. Darker blues blend also well with the mint because they belong to the same color-family. And you can never go wrong with white.
