Starting with the frosting for cupcakes and ending up with the bridesmaids dresses, this color looks just fresh, current and in one word: amazing.

From sportswear to business jackets, everything looks good in green mint. This shade can be approached in monochrome outfits, with small accents of other colors or through some strong contrasts, adding to the whole look a dose of boldness.

The street fashion, starting with Susie Bubble, who is famous for integrating natural mix-ups inspires us to pair a sport floral printed jacket with a green mint dress. Maria Kolosov displays a romantic rock star look combining a leather jacket with a skirt for extra minty fresh femininity, while Hanne Gaby Odie uses blue accents and a gray base to highlight key parts in the same green shade.

You can find green mint outfits in the collections of different famous brands like Marc Jacobs, YSL, Rodarte, A.L.C and Versus. It was definitely the color of 2012 but it may be a true hit in the summer of 2014. Also, you have to check the absolutely adorable Ray Ban minty sunglasses. The color is basically screaming freshness and happiness. Only imagine how good the green mint looks on your tanned body.

Minty coolness can be found anywhere, in clothes, accessories, cakes, wedding invitations and even on bedroom walls. But it can look really bad if worn wrong. So to avoid the disastrous imagine you better pick the mint shade that fits your eyes, skin tone and attitude. Also, it rarely works from head to toe, and if you’re not some experienced Vogue editor who knows fashion well, you should not try to do the all mint look, just don’t.
