MINT GREEN FOR SPRING AND HOW TO TEAM IT
I always get excited to share bottoms that fit well without any alterations! I feel tops have a lot more leeway in fit, but skirts are more challenging, thus I get the majority of mine tailored in order to sit higher up at the waistline. This one from Zara fits great across the waist. A discrete elastic panel on the back waistband allows it to stretch up to 2 additional inches, so you can comfortably “let loose” after a big meal. I wore this to brunch with a friend, and this skirt also looks darling paired with a chambray top or classic white button-down for work
The light colour of mint gives any look a subtle splash of colour, and a skirt in this with a floral design can then be teamed perfectly with a plain or basic top, too much colour or print can clearly clash.
I would suggest an easy off-shoulder cotton tee, as it’s an easy little top that dresses up even basic outfits. If you’re thinking of getting one, I’d highly recommend the black to start for channeling your inner Grace Kelly.
Since I get a lot of questions on undergarments…a strapless bra is ideal under this, but I often just wear my normal wireless ones and slide the straps off my shoulders, tucking them under the sleeves (although I know that may not work for ladies who need actual “support”).
So if you are deciding to try and brand new colour on yourself this spring/summer, a front runner for me would be mint green. If this is not the colour for you, there is a shade of green out there that can fit everybody, so go and get trying and experimenting, it could open up a brand new wardrobe for you!
