A New Hue: Our ModStylists Show You How to Style Mint

ModStylist Jess in Mint

Does the new year have you craving a fashionable fresh start? If you’re looking to add some excitement to your wardrobe, why not try a new-to-you hue? Today, ModStylist Jess has concocted two eye-catching outfits styled around marvelous minty green. In one outfit, Jess tries a head-to-toe look in the shade, and in the other, just a hint of mint.

MEGA MINT – “Mint looks amazing paired with pastels and interesting textures, like the metallic pleats of the Love at Frost Sight Dress!” says Jess. “When styling a monochromatic outfit, playing with pattern and texture help to break up the color and add interest.”

On Jess:
Love at Frost Sight Dress
Monday Morning Sky Cardigan
Upwardly Mobile Satchel in Mint
Beaded Bliss Necklace
Couldn’t Filigree More Bracelet
Juniper Flat
Pale in Comparison Tights

JUST A HINT – “Mint is one of my favorite shades to wear because of the unlimited options,” says Jess. “It pairs perfectly with pastels, but also looks fabulous against rich winter shades such as navy and maroon!”

Ready to Research Cardigan
Cascade Games Necklace
Megapixel This Tights
Cameo So Cute Wedge in Coral
Couldn’t Filigree More Bracelet

    I like the styles here, but I have red hair, blue eyes and fair skin with freckles.
    I dare you to show me a way mint could ever work on me ;)

      Katharina, I’m a redhead with blue eyes and pale skin and I actually submitted my photo into the Year of Dresses contest wearing a mint dress. It’s a lighter shade and I think it compliments a fair skin tone really well. Go check it out. http://bit.ly/10RNLaM
      I hope that helps!

      Hey Sarah, Just looked at your picture. You’re right, combined with very earthy shades the dress actually works quite well on you. I’ll give that combination a try in spring(but probably on a shopping tour first, before ordering from the US ;) )
