Neo-Mint: The “It” Color for 2020?

2020 Color Trend Alert!

Y-3 Adizero Runner 2019

Ahh, so sweet to find a trend alert treat as easy as today. I was checking out the Y-3 site today (5/10/19) and they had a few pairs of kicks that had this cool light green color sprinkled in the shoes. See above for example.  I’m thinking that looks like a nice color for Summer. Then within a few clicks I find this color mentioned on a blog and that WGSN calls it the color of 2020.

WGSN (Fashion Trend website) is typically pretty guarded with their color trends and want you to subscribe for a fee to access the good information.  Thus, it can be somewhat of a challenge to find the Hip colors ahead of time. Well today, we have it! Neo-Mint!

*I almost bought a 2020 booklet in NY that let us know the upcoming trends, but it was $240! (And it was wrapped in plastic, so not sure what it had to say in it).

WGSN Color Director Jane Monnington Boddy let’s us know:

We have clients ranging from active-wear giants through to car companies and some of the world’s leading retailers. What is becoming clear is the importance of Neo Mint – a shade that succinctly aligns futuristic development with nature

Right now, I’m finishing up some flared Gold Metallic pants. Next up, a quad colored Mickey Mouse children’s dress.  After that, I’m going straight into something with some Neo-Mint in it.  I’m thinking black pants with some very subtle hues of the color. Or maybe, I’ll get adventurous and make a shirt/jacket.  That might be the ticket.

WGSN also mentions:

From a fashion perspective, Neo mint embodies the drive towards tones that have gender-neutral appeal, which by 2020 will have moved on from the more feminine hues.

What do you think of Neo-Mint?  Do you have any advanced notice of Hot Colors for 2020?

Let us know in the comments section or you can email me.

And just in time for the NEO Mint craze. What color do you think these shoes are? I see Grey and Teal/NEO Mint. Others see Pink and White. Similar to the Gold and White Dress game from a view years back, eh?

Grey and Teal or Pink and White?

See you on the Streetz!
