The Color Turquoise

I fell in love with the color turquoise long before I could spell it (which was just a couple months ago. LOL). It is a universal color, so it looks good on everyone. It is the perfect mix of cool and warm, bright and muted and comes in so many gorgeous shades. And doesn’t it look amazing with a tan?

Since it’s summer and the color turquoise is so great for this season, I thought I’d show you some great pieces in different shades of my favorite color.

Jack Rogers Turquoise & Matte Silver Sandals. These sandals are so comfy and so classic. If they were good enough for Jackie O., they’re good enough for me. $105.00.

Samantha Wills Bracelet Set. Rose gold is so trendy, and I love how it looks with these turquoise bracelets. Have an arm party! $135

BANAGO Leaf Beach Tote. Sometimes a touch of a color is all you need. This hand-woven sea grass tote is cute for a day at the beach as well as brunch. Free shipping and free returns. $68

Betsey Johnson Checker Dots Pleated Scarf. Turquoise and green dots lend a pop of color to this cute, pleated scarf. I wear scarves with tank or tees in the summer in case I go somewhere where the air con is on full blast, or I’ll tie the scarf on my purse. Approx. dimensions: 30″W x 70″L. Polyester; machine wash. Free shipping and free returns. $38

Dior Vernis Bird of Paradise Nail Duo Bahia 2. A gorgeous nail duo for couture fun under the summer sun. I will alternate the pink and the blue on my toes for a cute look (or maybe one foot pink and one foot blue?). Free shipping and free returns. $29

FE NY Cat’s Eye Sunglasses. A curvy cat’s-eye silhouette gives a bit of retro glamour to these chic sunglasses with full sun protection. Free shipping and free returns. $22

Hard Tail Long Tank Spiral Atlantic Blue. This tank with a built-in bra is great for the gym or layered under a cardigan or jean jacket. Cotton/Lycra® spandex; machine wash. Free shipping and free returns. $54

Jolt Crop Skinny Jeans.  These jeans are so summery. I wouldn’t wear them with black high tops, but instead I’d pair them with a cute t-shirt, ballet flats (to make the legs look longer) and some statement jewelry to dress the outfit up. Cotton/spandex; machine wash. Free shipping and free returns. Was: $44.00 Now: $29.48

Lancome Le Stylo Waterproof Long Lasting EyeLiner Turquoise. Formulated to withstand everything from tears to inclement weather, this waterproof eyeliner has a unique twist tip that never needs sharpening. This color would look fab layered over a black or navy liner.  Free shipping and free returns.  $28

Moyna Three Stone Beaded Clutch Silver/ Turquoise. The metallic bugle beads and turquoise stones on this handcrafted clutch are sooo pretty. A drop-in chain strap is a great alternative to carry the bag. It’s got a magnetic-snap flap closure and an interior wall pocket. Silk/glass/plastic. Free shipping and free returns. $158

Do you already have some great turquoise pieces at home but aren’t sure what colors to wear with them? Of course, turquoise looks great with white. It also looks great with navy and grey. And, colors next to it on the color wheel (like lime green) and colors opposite it on the color wheel (like coral) look great too. Experiment a bit to see what you like!
