You recognize it in the Tiffany & Co. jewelry stores the color is synonymous with. You see it embodied in an after-dinner mint with outside chocolate coating. The truth is, this color is everywhere.

Except in your closet. So let's do something about that. Check out my slideshow to the left for some fabulous and affordable spring green picks by yours truly.

Whether you start incorporating the color into your wardrobe slowly, whether it be through a simple headband or in fabulous nail polish, you're sure to make everyone else green with envy.

Or, you could always go big with spring's hottest shade like all the celebrities, in this case, Kim K, by putting on a mint blazer with all black. Perhaps you go for some mint harem pants, like Whitney Port, but to tone down the rest of the look, you pair it with a simple grey tee. This really makes the standout color stand out. Or, if you're really brave, pull off the monochrome look with head-to-toe mint green a la Burberry Prorsum.

Though mint has been a known color since 1920, this light green has come a long way. So whether you decide to paint your wall or tint the ends of your hair this "it" shade, going green is definitely the way to go.

I guarantee you'll be worth more than a mint in the context of fashion.
