How to Wear Turquoise Blue
We are happy to introduce a new guide in our series of how to wear color. In the past, we’ve shared guides on how to wear blush pink, mint green, golden yellow, burnt orange, cobalt blue, and many more. Now, let’s talk all about how to wear turquoise blue!
What Color is Peacock Exactly?
As you know, each month, we select a color of the month. And this month’s color in focus is peacock!
So, you might be asking yourself, “Then, why are we talking about turquoise today? Shouldn’t we be talking about peacock?” Well, you make a good point, astute reader!
That point leads me to a funny story… On the first of October, when we emailed out our newsletter announcing our color of the month, I immediately received a text message from my best guy friend. At 7:05 am, he sent me a text message that simply exclaimed, “Peacock is not a color!”
I tried to argue with him. But he wasn’t having it. He is an engineer after all, so he of course sees things very literal and black and white. Plus, I didn’t have a very strong leg to stand on. In my defense, even Neiman Marcus says that peacock hues are trending! But to his point, I guess the key word there is “hues” — plural.
Indeed, peacocks consist of a marvelous range of hues from beautiful blues to gorgeous greens and possibly powerful purples. Even our mood board for October demonstrates that range of richness.
Realizing that peacock is a range and not a singular color, I looked back at my attempts to wear peacock this month. What I discovered is that I actually stayed more in the turquoise blue range. So, that brings me to why we are focusing on how to wear turquoise blue today…
