Confession time: I can’t stand the taste of mint. Not in toothpaste, or chewing gum, or York peppermint patties. Not even in candy canes on Christmas. (I do like mint chocolate chip ice cream, but that’s as far as I’ll go.)
The color of mint, however, is a newfound love of mine. I spotted these mint-green 70’s slacks on the edge of the men’s section in my favorite thrift store, and grabbed them as fast as I could. The 100% polyester content makes them breezy and cool for spring, and the eye-popping shade makes them awesome.
I’ve also decided that I’m going to wholeheartedly stand behind the crop-top trend, and wear them as often as possible (within reason, of course.) The 3rd pose in this post is a little goofy, but I like that it shows the look I’m going for – a few inches of skin combined with a high waist, no exposed navel, nothing drastic.
My only concern is that, if this trend gets big enough, it could end up the same way that leggings ended up, in which the vast majority of suburban high-school girls wear them inappropriately and to disastrous effect. Think for a second about all the times you’ve seen someone wearing leggings as pants and leaving very little to the imagination. Now imagine that same person, trying to be all trendy and fashion-forward, wearing a cropped t-shirt with low-rise jeans and Uggs. It’s Britney all over again… :(
