The Spring 2012 runways were awash with striking hues of mint green — and after perusing the Fab Community, it looks like you guys are getting in on the trend, too. Designers like Tory Burch, Vera Wang, and Rodarte all showed a fresh seafoam shade, offering a pretty, unexpected new hue to play around with for the season. We love how these street stylers have put their own spin on mint, and we can all agree it's a perfect look for Spring. See below for some of our editors' tips on how to inject a minty fresh burst to your look.
- Obviously adding a dash of mint will perk up any of your neutral basics, but don't be afraid to pair the cool hue with another bright, like yellow, pink, or orange.
- Keep in mind that mint (like all brights) will draw instant attention to the part of your body you're wearing it on. Want to highlight your legs? Go for a pair of skinny mint pants or pencil skirt. If you'd rather keep the focus on your face, opt for a pretty mint-hued sweater or silky blouse.
- Don't underestimate the power of accessories. If you're feeling timid about trying the mint trend, just pick up a seafoam-colored clutch, statement necklace, or pretty pair of flats.
