The eighties were a bad time, fashion wise :)
I know there's a wee bit of a revival going on,
but I've got to tell you, I was there, and it wasn't pretty!
In grade eight I wore candy floss pink and mint green almost exclusively.
It made getting ready in the morning simple,
but immersing yourself in a certain color so completely requires a long break later -
turquoise is headed in this direction for many.
After a prolonged absence from popularity,
mint green is looking fresh again.
It started with the iconic Domino book cover.
I almost used mint green in my own bedroom after being entranced
by the spectacular Portobello chinoiserie by DeGournay
(I am re-thinking this... to be continued!)
Mint green started popping up on the fashion front...
the soft version
or the way I like it :)
People tend to think of pastels as girly,
and paired with white they definitely exude feminine charm...
but grounded with blacks, dark greys or browns,
mint green is sophisticated, and slightly moody.
Trendwise, as we move from bright color and glossy finishes toward more organic based palettes,
I think pastels will be creeping in more and more.
What do you think?
Are you ready to re-visit mint green?
