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.

  1. 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.

    • @Su- Thanks for the suggestion! Would love to include hunter green in a future Color Combo post.

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