Wear Pantone’s Color of the Year
Turquoise is the color of the year, as per Pantone, a company that provides the color standards to the fashion industry. This color, an amalgamation of air and water elements, is representative of truth, faith, health and happiness. It has an amazing ability to bring in a refreshing feel to the wearer and a soothing effect on the onlookers. It conjures up visions of a serene seascape.
The versatility of turquoise lies in the fact that it can be worn in formal or informal settings, and it looks good on persons of all skin tones. However, you would need to check whether lighter or brighter shades of the color are suitable for your complexion.
You could wear a turquoise striped shirt with white pants to office for that fresh, cool look. Alternatively try out a skirtsuit of the same color and accessorize with silver or bronze accessories. For occasions such as evening parties, classy turquoise dresses accessorized with beaded necklaces, or elegant bracelets can make quite a fashion statement. If you are adventurous, you could dabble in make-up such as turquoise eyeliners and eyeshadows.
A turquoise top can either be dressed down when paired with khaki pants or dressed up with a red or violet skirt. Don’t feel like wearing an outfit in turquoise? Slip into a peacock blue, lime green or a brown dress. Put on a turquoise belt, danglers and shoes. Don’t’ forget to carry your turquoise clutch and voila, you have added some zing to your ensemble.
The color turquoise is at once invigorating and calming. Use its beneficial qualities to feel upbeat and stress-free this year.
