'stache #37 - lime moustache

Popularized by a certain class of women in the cocktail-soaked 1920s, the freewheeling young women wearing the citrus moustache were referred to in the society pages as “tarts,” a mildly derisive nickname that endures. Despite its flashy provenance, the lime moustache fell out of favor in ensuing decades, and is now considered the fourth most popular citrusstache, behind orange, lemon and kumquat.

Women may wear the lime moustache year round, though the risk of being tagged as a lady of questionable morals remains.
