When you are not sure of how a certain colour will suit your style and personality, it's always good to start with the details. Buy accessories or nailpolish, which are usually cheaper than apparel and see if you would feel comfortable wearing that colour.
That is why I've bought these two from Depend in mint and lavender, I've worn them the last two weeks, and I have to say I like it. The next strp would probably be to buy a mint-green belt or even a tee...hmmm, what do you think ?!?
