Mint has translated from Spring to Fall (Winter) very well. In the warmer months the color comes off as sea-like and light as air. At this time of year it takes on an icy, bright feel. Wearing mint in the colder months is a matter of strategically choosing the weight and mix of textures and fabrics. For example: corduroy or suede mint is perfect. Chiffon could look silly. Mint in winter plays well with colors that ground it: camel, navy, gray, black, and even leopard prints.
