Colors can come and go in fashion just as styles of clothing do. Mint emerged on the scene a couple of years ago and seems to have some staying power. This color is bright and refreshing, adding a bit of chic coolness to any ensemble. While initially associated with the lush greens of spring, it has lasted through the summer and can even be worn to brighten chiller autumn looks and mirror the iciness of winter. Though clothing pieces are still hot, mint jewelry is definitely trending and can last you well through the winter and into the coming spring and summer.
Mint-gold jewelry is everywhere right now. Seeing a recent comeback these past few seasons, gold is back with a vengeance and has taken mint along for the ride. The two are glam together and can brighten up any outfit without being too bright or overwhelming. Statement necklaces, chunky bangles or cuff bracelets, and even solid-toned rings and retro, over-sized gemstone earrings feature the color. Silver is an option too, of course, and gives off more of that icy, wintry feel. Either combination can be worn throughout the seasons and look best when worn with neutrals like black, grey, or even navy blue, as well as alongside complementary colors such as purples or blues, though the darker the tone the better. When paired with darker colors, the refreshing jewelry stands out and is allowed more room to truly shine and take center stage. Don’t forget the power of other accessories! Chiffon scarves or handbags are just as much accessories as jewelry and can be used to similar effect. A chain-strap purse can also combine the elements of gold/silver jewelry when paired with this cool shade for added glam.
When worn against a backdrop of neutrals or dark, complimentary tones, it can stand out and add oomph. When worn with khaki, beige or white, this shade adds a bit of color and compliments the generally cool and light nature of the outfit, but when worn over darker colors such as black, navy blue or even a rich plum, this mint shade can really shine and stand out. Like any other color or pattern, try to be aware of how much of it you’re using in a given outfit or ensemble. Thankfully, the gold/silver combination helps break up the colors and adds some dimension, but otherwise, mint is more of an accent color and packs more punch when used sparingly and wisely.
