Minty Minx

Not sure what the title above means, but let’s just say last night involved a lot of champagne and lobster, so I’m a little cloudy in this post-celebration, early-morning fog.

Mint has made itself right at home in the mainstream fashion color profile over the last couple of seasons, especially with 50s throwback and pastel trending so loudly on and off the runway.

Below, a few of my favorite minty fresh pieces.  First up: I mean, Chloe, get outta here with the perfect minimalism of this tote.  Too bad the price tag is maximalist ($2,650, Barney’s):


Instead, I’ll get the look with small, inexpensive add-ons, like this geometric necklace ($55, Hannah Zakari) —



Perfect with this mint green pair  of jeans (I’m all about colored denim at the moment — AG Jeans, $175, Calypso), a loose-weave sweater ($72, TopShop), and some mint-accented snakeskin flats ($36, TopShop):


Perfect with that J. Crew Biennial tote ($348, J. Crew):

Or, how much do you love a classic polka-dot dress ($225, Net-A-Porter):


Ideal with these MINT cap-toed heels (~$500, Colette) —

— and a navy worker-bee tote (DVF, $685, StyleBop):

Or, how rad would you look rocking some pink skinnies (J. Brand, on sale for $88, Shopbop) with these outrageously perfect Missoni peep-toes ($785, The Corner), a simple white blousy top ($17.95, H&M), and a big ol necklace ($300, Charm & Chain):




I’d finish with this Botkier tote ($395, Botkier):

I love this floral print dress ($210, Antik Batik), prominently featuring mint green, with a coordinating necklace ($18, Miss Selfridge’s):

I’d pair it with these nude wedges (Stuart Weitzman, $365, Endless):


I’d finish with this frosted green bowling bag ($53, ASOS)?  So funky and retro.


For a dressier occasion, consider Emmanuel Ungardo’s lace-adorned shift ($656, The Outnet) with Amanda Pearl tassel earrings ($125, Amanda Pearl):



Goes perfectly with those glittered Miu Miu t-straps — perfect, perfect evening shoes ($730, Net-A-Porter) — and a green-and-gold clutchski (Chloe, $1,395, Net-A-Porter):

Now, I know I’m jumping the gun with spring/summer pieces, but I just had to feature the perfect espadrille/wedge ($225, Vince Camuto) —

Also — anyone familiar with the line Antipodium?  I’d never heard about it, but am loving their shapes and styles — and they have a few key pieces in darling mint green.  Worth checking out!
