Firstly, you should pay attention to your own skin tone and to the shades of mint you pick. Not every color in the world is right for everyone.
The color mint is achieved by mixing blue, yellow and white. Depending on the ratio, a mint shade can be more blue-based or more yellow-based. When picking a shade of mint, you should match it to the color of your skin (i.e.pick a more blue-based mint, if you have a cool skin tone and a more yellow-based mint if you have a warm skin tone). Do look closely before you buy, the differences are subtle, but they are there and your outfit will show!
Secondly, when it comes to max and match, mint loves to be paired with other pastel hues like peach (for the warm skinned, see picture above) or lavender (for the cool skinned). It also looks fabulous in combination with neutrals like white, black, beige and navy (flatters all skin colours). Just keep in mind: If you have darker, bolder coloring in your skin, hair and eyes, combine it with darker shades. Only people with really soft and muted appearances can wear mint from head to toe, as a singular color.
Alright, admittedly what you see in the picture above is not exactly a pair of mint jeans (it is actually another example of some stylish pajama pants), but I still like the fresh pastel hues of the outfit all together, so I decided to share it.
The color mint has been one of the key trends this spring/summer season. It is the pastel version of green and turquoise, hence a softer and lighter shade, just perfect for sunny days! It can look pretty and chic, cool and fresh. Fashion in this color can now be found everywhere. Clothing, accessories, eye shadows, nail polish, you name it…
It’s easy to get obsessed with mint, but beware! Mint green can also look disastrous if worn in a worn way or on a person with the wrong coloring. So before you treat yourself to some minty pieces, take my advice on How To Wear Mint Jeans.
