Colour theory: Wintergreen

Well, there’s snow on the ground, so there’s no denying that winter is pretty much here. We miss the fall colours, but we’re settling into the cool colours of winter, especially the dark teal-blue-green of wintergreen (a low-lying woodland plant and a minty-fresh flavour). This is such a great colour-range for winter: neutral but striking, rich and saturated, and somehow both warm and cool. Here are our favourite examples of the colour we plan to wear all season long.
