How to style mint pants

One shoulder spring outfit

When I first started this blog 5 years ago, I was EXTREMELY into mint. That may be an understatement actually. I thought over time that obsession would fade a bit, but it really hasn't. Once February and March start coming around, I start to crave mint more and more again!

Last week at work has been one of the busiest weeks I have had in quite a long time. Usually my busy weeks are thanks to traveling or social events, but I was actually working in the evenings, and I worked a full 8 hours on Saturday as well. Needless to say, some retail therapy was in order, so I started scrolling aimlessly through American Eagle's website adding things to my cart. I stopped on this top because it is SO pretty and makes me hella excited for the spring!

I also came across these cropped mint skinnies and I decided I needed a second pair of mint bottoms. I already have a pair, but they are distressed, and I try avoid wearing rips to work. I'm wearing these pants in a 4 short. I ALMOST got them in the regular length so they would actually be more full length pants than crops, but I loved the idea of these being a bit cropped in length because they are the perfect transitional length to wear with booties now and then again with sandals later in the warmer months.

I love American Eagle bottoms because they fit perfectly to my body type. The legs stay nice and narrow all the way to the ankle, which is the most flattering, especially with booties.

Mint is so fun to wear because it's so light and airy and gives us hope for sun and warmer weather to come! I tend to reach for cobalts and blues a lot when I wear mint, but the color is really more versatile than you think! If you don't have a good pair of mint skinnies yet, I  definitely think there is a hole in your wardrobe and I highly recommend this pair! I pulled together other ways I've styled mint pants in the collage below.

This is the third week I have done a remix post like this and I'm digging it! Sometimes I forget how I have styled things in the past, so these posts help remind me of outfit combinations that work! Why reinvent the wheel, right? Hope you all have a great week! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. This top is adorable and I'm still so in love with that bag. I have one pair of colored jeans and they are a greyish blue and the closest the closest thing to mint I own.


  5. I love mint too and I absolutely love that top. Hope you have an easier week this week!

  6. Mint is such a great color. I love mixing it with darker colors to create a nice rich contrast. I got a mint trench coat a few years ago that I absolutely love. Great outfit, by the way!


  7. This color makes me want spring that much quicker. Love this pretty blouse with this shade! Thanks for the link up Carylee!


  8. I love mint too and spring colors in general are on my radar! Love this look!

  9. I still love those Joie boots and need to find a similar lighter grey pair! And wow you are a remixing pro with those mint pants!

  10. I thought mint was out of style so I gave away my pair of mint jeans. I can't believe American Eagle is selling them again. I'll definitely be watching for more now.

  11. I love all the ways you've styled your cute mint pants! Great ideas for Spring dressing! Have a great week!

  12. I remember when mint was huge years ago, and I just bought a shirt in it this weekend---I really love it so I hope it comes back again!!

  13. Adorable look! I love this light color pallete!
