The change in the weather always inspires me to brighten up my outfits a bit, and turquoise is the perfect option at this time of year, reflecting the (occasionally) blue sky and cheering up the days when the sky isn’t exactly playing ball.
But which turquoise works for you? Picking the right shade can mean adding just the right level of brightness to your outfit, but getting it wrong can mean either looking dreary and drab, or like you just popped into the clown shop.
Summer – Go for slightly softer shades, preferably with a bit more blue or a mint green tone rather than true bright turquoise. Don’t feel you have to go into drab shades, but remember that Summers need that tiny bit of softness or greying to their colours.
Winter – make sure your turquoise is clear and bright, without too much yellow to turn it into a warm colour. Alternatively, go for a very pale iced turquoise, just scarcely there at all, and pair with charcoal or navy for high contrast chic.
