Did you see the icy green beaded number The Artist actress Bérénice Bejo wore to the Oscars? Her gown points at a larger fashion trend taking over spring's retail floor space: mint madness. From frosty green jeans to nubby suede pumps, it's the color du jour—and in my experience, it makes you look tanner without a single dose of glow lotion.
Try working this shade into your wedding through bridesmaids belts, clutches, rhinestone earrings, dusty miller additions to your bouquet, or groomsmen bow ties. Not your style? Then incorporate it into your cosmetics. A subtle sweep of sweet pea shadow makes eyes look bright and alert, or try a light coat of polish in the same hue. It's delicate, feminine, and so feels like spring.
