Mint Condition

Marni, Alexander Wang, Oscar de la Renta, Alberta Ferretti

Mint green was a fresh trend on the Spring/Summer 2011 runways, and everything from saturated, super-bright shades to the palest of pastels has been seen on the runways and on celebrities. The look shows no sign of stopping as we head into Fall: Olivia Wilde's pleated silk Chloe Resort 2012 dress was a big hit in August at the 2011 'Do Something' Awards, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley lit up the late summer in her mint green skirt and white top, and similar looks have been all over the blogsophere and celebrity websites recently.

Allover green or a white-on-green pairing seem to be the most popular way to rock this look, and can be easily carried into Fall with the right accessories. Maxi skirts and dresses are perfect for crisp Autumn weather when worn with another trend, that of the loose knit, and green tops contrast well with brown knee-high boots and blue jeans. Cream-colored, oversized sweaters thrown over floaty green skirts with leather ankle boots (a la Karen) are gorgeous as the weather cools off.

Forever 21 has a lovely one-shoulder top in a shimmery green, $20, while retailer LuLu's has an interesting mint blouse with lace eyelet cutouts for $35. For a more relaxed, lowkey look, grab this perfectly colored t-shirt, $37, from American Apparel, this gauze paperbag skirt, $20, from Urban Outfitters, or this chiffon maxi, $46, from American Apparel (which also comes in 13 other colors).

P.S. I saw a girl in the cutest green maxi skirt in Soho last week, but she was moving so fast I was unable to snap a picture of her outfit. The street style below is similar:
