Color Combo to Try: Coral + Turquoise


Color Combo Coral + Turquoise

If you ever find yourself stuck in a style rut, playing with fun new color combinations is a great way to liven up your wardrobe. In this series, we feature unique and unexpected color combinations, then give you stylish outfit ideas so you can try out these color combos yourself. For more color-centric outfit ideas, be sure to check out our previous posts in this series.

Summer is prime time to wear some bold, in-your-face hues, so for this month’s Color Combo post, we’re pairing coral and turquoise. Both shades have a fun vibe that’s ideal for this time of year, plus the combination of a warm coral and a cooler turquoise makes for a chic and perfectly balanced look.

Need some outfit ideas before you rock this color combo? Simply scroll on down to check out four stylish outfits featuring turquoise and coral:

Outfit #1: Summer Casual

For a cute, yet low-key look, pair a bird print blouse with light wash denim cut-offs. Incorporate coral with on-trend circle sunnies and comfy flat sandals. A sleek cross-body bag picks up on the color of the sandals, while an anchor necklace adds a summery touch.

Outfit #2: Cute & Dressy

Try out this color combination the next time you go out with a gorgeous coral-hued dress. Accessorize with a turquoise statement necklace to really amp up the style – this floral one adds a feminine vibe to the look. Since the rest of the colors are so bold, opt for neutral accessories, like these faux suede pumps and off-white handbag. Stacked gold bangles add the finishing touch.

Outfit #3: Boho Glam

Emulate a casual, yet glam summertime vibe by pairing a coral stripe tee with a boho-chic maxi skirt. Silver sandals continue the glam feel, while these earrings add another dose of turquoise. Grab a cute canvas tote, then paint your nails a dark coral shade to complete the look.

Outfit #4: Cool & Comfy

This final outfit is ideal for the transition into late summer/early fall. Cropped coral trousers are dressed down with a fun graphic tee and denim jacket. Add another pop of turquoise with t-strap flats. Go with understated, yet chic jewelry, like this arrowhead-shaped stud earrings and stackable silver rings.

    I love coral and turquoise! My favorite is pairing turquoise lace high-waisted shorts with a high-low coral top. With some bronze accessories. :)

    I have loved almost all of the color combos that have been posted, but this one I’m just not a fan of! It seems just a bit too, (can I say ‘trendy’?) just not very classic. But that is just my opinion! Too candy-ish for me! (:

    Love this combo. I have an old vintage toucan brooch in these colors and it always looks so tropical!

    So I love turquoise and coral together and your second outfit is great, but that color is more aqua than turquoise in my opinion. I think turquoise is a bit more green. By the way, I love matching mint with turquoise for a trendy take on monochrome.

    Earlier I would have thought that coral top and turquoise bottom would have fit. But I’m so much in love with the trends right now. and I really wish to rock coral bottom as well. Its gorgeous and free style

    You make these daring combos look so easy and do-able! Could you maybe do an unexpected combo with hunter green? I have an awesome hunter green button down shirt that I always wear with neutrals, and it’d be nice to see a fun color paired with it, but I’m just not sure what other color to use hehe.
