The Summer 2019 Color Trend You Should Add To Your Closet Immediately
From blindingly bright shades to pastel hues, color has been welcomed back into fashion with open arms in the past year. And with the warm weather *finally* showing up, right now is the perfect time to start your summer shopping and incorporate some of those shades into your wardrobe. Looking for a good place to begin? Summer 2019's biggest color trend is clearly pointing toward mint green, so you can't go wrong adding a few pieces in that hue to your closet.
Slime green took over the fashion scene in 2018 and is obviously here to stay, but this less intense iteration may be giving it some competition. This pastel hue made an appearance in the SS19 collections of designers like Brandon Maxwell, who sent Bella Hadid down the runaway in a stunning minty green dress. Jil Sander's SS19 show also featured the shade, showcasing a head-to-toe mint green look.
It's not just designer labels adding this color into collections — contemporary brands are experimenting with mint green as well. Paloma Wool, a unique label that creates timeless pieces that are all produced in Barcelona, released mint green body hugging dresses you'll want to wear all summer. Plus, one scroll through the new arrivals sections of retailers such as Net-a-Porter and & Other Stories and you'll find further proof that it's taking over — the color is everywhere you look.
Not sure how to style mint green? Monochromatic outfits in this pistachio-like hue are always chic, and require little effort. And don't worry about your top and bottom being the same exact shade of green — this ensemble can be pulled off with many different variations of the color. The sweetness of the hue also lends itself well to juxtaposition, so take cues from Paloma Wool and contrast a pretty mint dress with a tough shoe like cowboy boots.
