The beginning of the new year was provided with colors that bring hope and optimism. According to the Pantone Color Institute, this year’s lineup of trending colors includes Mint 16-5938. When the color mint comes to mind, we think of a cool, light green that refreshes. It is indeed a color that is bracing to the eyes. You can take advantage of this color by way of fashionable dresses. This summer, make green the color of the season. Here are our top choices.
- What mint green color is right for me?
Answer: Wearing mint green suits everyone—all you need is the right tone. When choosing pieces with this color, remember to pay special attention to your eye, skin and hair coloring. For instance, if you have blonde hair, the best mint green for you has darker tones. Dark-haired gals can get away with wearing lighter mint greens. Ladies with soft coloring can get away with wearing all tones of mint green while dark-skinned gals look smashing with the color itself. If you want to make sure that what color mint green suits you, try out the piece and look at the mirror from several angles. You can also try to incorporate mint green by means of accessories instead.
- What colors suit mint green?
Answer: Mint green is pretty versatile and it matches well with other colors. You can pair mint green with black or white for a sophisticated look. If you want something that’s a bit more adventurous, go for mint green paired with pastels like a pale yellow, baby pink, peach or baby blue. Mint green also looks great by itself. If you want something on the bluer side, opt for a dark turquoise. For a bolder take, choose a mint green and orange combo. Remember though that too much of it can be overwhelming for a summer look so try to keep it minimal—do not wear mint green from head to toe.
- What accessories suit mint green?
Answer: The best accessories for a mint green ensemble are silver and gold accessories. Silver enhances the freshness that the color entails while gold harmonizes the coolness and gives it a little warmth. You can also choose to pair mint green with pastel-color accessories.
