How to wear mint green this winter

Pastel shades can be polarising where fashion is concerned – you tend to either love them or loathe them.

While sugary-sweet shades of pastel pink and lilac can quickly conjure up memories of your childhood wardrobe, mint green is more of a modern take on soft pastels hues. If you’re looking to ass some colour to your wardrobe this season, but don’t want to opt for bold and vibrant shades, a touch of mint green could be a good place to start.

Discover all the inspiration you need to embrace the soft shade of green this season in the gallery below.

Need a little more colour in your wardrobe? Here’s how to incorporate pink into your winter repertoire. 

Dior to host cruise runway show in Italy this July

Marking a return to the fashion calendar, Dior announced they will be presenting their Cruise 2021 collection in Puglia, Italy on July 22.

The show, which was rescheduled from its May 27 date amid the pandemic, will go ahead without an audience and broadcasted live from the Piazza del Duomo in Lecce. This marks the first time a major fashion brand will be presenting a virtual runway show to press and retailers.

“We would like to send a message of support, of hope, of optimism and of rebirth,” said Pietro Beccari, president and CEO of Christian Dior Couture. “I’m thinking about big suppliers but also the small ones, many tiny family businesses of artisans in France and in Italy … many of them didn’t know and still do not know how to survive.”

The announcement comes while many other fashion brands declare a move away from the traditional fashion calendar, either reducing collections or doing away with the fashion calendar all together. Gucci caused a shakeup in the fashion world when they announced they will be abandoning seasonal collections and reduce their lines to two a year.

Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and Saint Laurent have all cancelled their fall 2021 presentations. Meanwhile, Chanel will be presenting its cruise collection through a look book and Burberry will be hosting their own virtual show for Fashion Week in September.

“Fashion week is important not only for the fashion family, it’s also important for the city where the shows are,” said Dior’s designer Maria Grazia Chiuri.
