It was announced this month that THE color of 2010 is Turquoise. Pantone, the global authority on color, has made the call and they explain their reasoning behind this decision, saying,
Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, Turquoise evokes thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a languorous, effective escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of wellbeing.
Well, sign me up! I have always been a big fan of turquoise and I think it is one of those rare colors that is bold but also flattering on most skin tones and colorings. With turquoise being the latest and greatest color to look forward to in the new year, I decided to get a head start and pick out a few turquoise pieces that can take you throughout the year….
This turquoise coat from Love21 (Forever21’s contemporary line) is sophisticated and stylish. I love the collar and the texture of the trim. Perfect for getting you through the beginning months of 2010.
And I am crushing majorly on this chunky statement necklace from Banana Republic. How amazing would it look with a crisp white tee in the spring? The combination of the turquoise and the gold chains is totally on trend.
Once summer rolls around, show your playful side with these turquoise sandals from Steve Madden. Think of turquoise as your new neutral and wear it with any color combination.
