Waves of colour: Burgundy and Mint

Have you guys noticed something funny going on in colour trends lately? Twice in a row now, one colour seems to have been taking both the fashion world and the normal world by storm. First came burgundy. Last December I remember seeing a lot more burgundy in outfits on fashion blogs. Before I knew it everywhere I looked, in town, on campus, everyone seemed to be wearing burgundy! Especially burgundy jeans caught on like fire! Now, as if out of nowhere, on so many blogs I have seen posts dedicated to mint. This is the new colour that seems to be catching on. I wonder how long it will take for me to see students on campus walking around in mint coloured jeans. What do you think the next it-colour will be?

  9. I love the first outfit so much!
    As far as the next big thing in color, I'm afraid to guess, cause till last year I wasn't fond of burgundy, either mint but now after this much brain wash I love them both :)
    Have a wonderful day

  11. Love the second and third outfits, these are really pretty colours, mint green has been my favourite recently, can't wait for these colour trends to hit SA. I think what we may see next is in the yellow-green-chartruese range.

  18. I'm loving burgundy - the jumper is adorable!

    But I'm only just warming to mint and the other pastel shades - not sure they'd suit my skin tone!
