Fashion: Trend Alert: Mint Condition

By Xenia Rimmer — March 05, 2013

Spring has almost sprung; the days are getting longer and so is our fashion wish list! In true Spring style pastels, pops of colour and patterns are set to be big this season but it’s the mighty mint trend that got the attention of the front row at New York Fashion Week. Most notably, Kate Spade and Donna Karan showed some truly fresh looks, combining strong mint fabrics with crisp whites and bold accessories.

1. Costa Blanca Tank ($37.30) 2. Line and Dot Blazer($138) 3. Joa Top ($24) 4. Wasteland ($180) 5. Savous ($24.99)

The high street has some great on-trend pieces for all you fashionistas who are ready for Spring. Channel your inner SoCal girl and pair this Costa Blanca tank top with a bold, floral print for maximum impact. Or, for extra fashion ‘brownie points’, embrace the bomber jacket trend with this clean cut jacket by Line & Dot.

As the temperatures rise, flirt with sheer fabrics. This stylish studded top by Jo + Closet adds a tough-girl edge to the trend. Or, for a dressier look, this StyleStalker Bombshell dress from Wasteland is perfect.

If you’re not ready to go all-out on the trend, choose bold mint-coloured accessories over a crisp, white shirt. Or for a casual look with just a hint of mint, work these cute studded shorts by Savous!
