Step aside, millennial pink! It’s the era of millennial mint!
The long-reigning millennial pink may have met its challenger. Millennial mint a.k.a. dusty mint a.k.a. pale green a.k.a. sage a.k.a. pistachio; whatever you name it, these shades of green may well be crowned 2019’s IT colour seeing as it immensely influenced the fashion scene. It is the new aesthetic! This on-trend colour is undoubtedly suitable with all four seasons and is sure to stick around well into 2020, as seen on multiple SS20 runways. So, there’s no harm in investing in this colour trend if you’re hesitant to jump on the bandwagon.
Green is a least favourite colour of mine with the exception of emerald green, but I soon grew fond of this refreshing shade of green and before I knew it, my eyes would seek them out whenever I’m shopping.
To really make an impact with this colourway, head-to-toe pistachio is the way to go! As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, the trick to flawless monochromatic dressing is to be wise with the hues and creating contrasting effect with textures/details (unless it’s a co-ord).
Recently, ZALORA rolled out a stunning collection of dusty mint clothings from which I picked out this asymmetric skirt and cropped jacket. As featured on the site’s lookbook, the skirt is paired with a sweater of similar hue. This is a classic and feminine combination that you can’t go wrong with. I didn’t fancy a sweater, which is why I went with the cropped jacket instead. The utility element on it caught my eye, which is another trend that’s huge this year as well. The jacket is also versatile in that you can button up and style it as a top. Alternatively, leave it unbutton and layer a neutral top underneath to break up an otherwise monochrome outfit. To compliment the cream-toned detail on the skirt, a cream top would be perfect! I just absolutely love the contrasting effect of the slightly masculine utility jacket and a sleek, sophisticated midi skirt!
If head-to-toe pale green seems too bold, you could incorporate delicate shades of green in the form of accessories for starters. Think, a lace-up flats or nail lacquer in minty hues. Not to mention, jewellery, especially earrings in green tones are very much of-the-moment.
Not over millennial pink yet? Fret not for there is always room for both. Add a touch of pastel green to a pastel pink ensemble to give a subtler nod to this trend. Since pink and green are complementary colours, millennial pink and millennial mint makes for a great colour combination.
