Color Combo to Try: Fuchsia + Teal



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 on combining Red + PinkMint + MustardPeach + Gray and Orange + Blue.

This month’s color combination pairs together two fantastic jewel tones — fuchsia and teal. Although they’re both bold hues, a warm-toned fuchsia works amazingly well with a cooler teal shade to create a look that’s sure to make a statement this summer.

Need some outfit ideas before you try out this color combination? Scroll on down to check out four outfits featuring fuchsia and teal:

Outfit #1: Modern Bohemian

This first outfit is a simple, yet stylish way to rock this color combo. Start by pairing a gorgeous fuchsia ikat print sundress with a pair of comfy teal-colored flat sandals. Add teardrop-shaped earrings, which tie together both colors. For the finishing touch, accessorize with a boho-chic fringed handbag. This look would be perfect for attending an outdoor event on a hot summer day.

Outfit #2: Vintage Flair

For this look, pair a classic yet modern fuchsia button-up shirt with some vintage-inspired teal striped shorts. Next, add a pair of woven flats, which continue that retro vibe. Accessorize with an adorable gold elephant necklace and a pair of cool oversized sunglasses for a stylish daytime look that’s perfect for shopping or grabbing lunch with the girls.

Outfit #3: Feminine Color Blocking

The next outfit is essentially the opposite of the last — here, we’re pairing a teal top with fuchsia bottoms. Take a pair of bright fuchsia-colored skinny jeans and pair them with a sweet and simple peplum top in a pretty teal hue. Next, a silver bow belt not only adds interest, but helps to define the waistline and create an hourglass shape. Strappy black sandals add a boost of height, while a polka dot clutch lends a fun touch. Accessorize with a delicate silver ring and you’ll have a bold, yet girly color blocked look that’s perfect for a night on the town.

Outfit #4: Casual Chic

Our final look pairs dressy items with more casual pieces to create an outfit that’s perfectly balanced and stylish. Start by pairing a basic gray and white tank with an on-trend asymmetrical hem skirt in a fun fuchsia shade. Add a teal statement necklace and a pair of matching platform sandals for a bold look. Accessorize with a unique head wrap that incorporates both shades and you’ll have an easygoing, yet dressy summertime ensemble.

    The 3rd and 4th outfits are both awesome. The 4th one is just so relaxed. I love it. And the peplum top is perfect. This is a very unique color combination. I have to try it soon.

    I love these colors together because I like to go with a Cheshire Cat look without looking too animated.

    The fact that I had a cropped fuschia top (that I never knew what to wear with) and just purchased a teal maxi skirt, this post is a God send! lol. Thanks

    I love the fuschia/teal color combo! I have a pair of fuschia pants that I’ve been struggling to pair with tops other than neutrals. And the outfits you posted are super cute too.
