Mint Condition

Green isn't really one of my favorite colors to wear only because I used to find it hard to create an outfit based on the color. Lately I've been finding different shades of green to be appealing and I actually want to start incorporating it into my wardrobe. I'm still not daring enough to wear an all green outfit so for now, I'll take baby steps. For people like me who are still new to this color, what I recommend is to keep the outfit simple and that less is more. Have one main focal piece and create an outfit based on that piece.

Here are some ways that you can incorporate this color into your wardrobe.
Blouse & Pants: Madewell | Cardigan: Old Navy | Shoes: Steve Madden | Bag: Urban Outfitters | Necklace: Anthropologie

I love this mint colored silk blouse from Madewell because it adds a pop to your wardrobe. A mint green blouse can be a little hard to create an outfit around but adding a patterned cardigan can tone down the bright color but also bring it together. Simple jewelry works well with this look as do chunky jewelry. In this outfit, I paired it with a stone necklace from Anthropologie that also has a pop of neon. Neutral colored denim works well with bright colors; you don't want to wear too much of one color because it could be overwhelming to the eye. Keep the shoes simple since everything else in the outfit pops.

Green pants can be a little intimidating to wear because it can be overwhelming to pick a shirt and a pair of shoes that goes well with it. I recommend picking a dark color because I feel that dark color pants are easier to pull off than bright green ones. Also, picking a dark color can transition well into other seasons such as the Fall. For your top, pair it with a white tee and layered jewelry to make it more fun or you can be daring and pair it with a patterned blouse like I did above. The shoes can be simple or you can wear it with a fun printed heel. For example, cheetah print would look great with cuffed green jeans.


Blazer: Romwe | Dress: Delia's | Shoes: Madewell | Necklace: J. Crew | Earrings: Madewell

For this outfit I made the shoes to main point. It's a suede heel from Madewell that you can wear for different occasions. The dress is subtle; it's not too revealing but it also hugs you in the right places. The heart prints make the dress a little more sweeter and fun too. Add a blazer or a shawl above the dress, a few pieces of gold jewelry and you're good to go for the night.

What are some other ways that you fit green into your wardrobe?
