My Color for April: Turquoise

I usually am not a fan of turquoise, but it seems to be the perfect April color! I suggest pairing turquoise pieces with neutrals- I especially like black, light beige, and chocolate brown with turquoise hues. I also like the pairing of turquoise with gold, but I feel like it has to be in small elements like jewelry...just a touch of gold with turquoise can go a long way! I would stay away from turquoise colored denim pieces or sweat pants (they tend to look like scrubs) Below are some examples of turquoise items I like. Let me know your thoughts!

Keep in mind the variety of turquoise and which hues go best with your eyes, hair, and skin tone. Personally, I have dark brown hair, brown eyes, and olive skin tone. I like to stick with more matte turquoise hues, not the super bright ones. However, I have seen girls with my same hair/eye/skin makeup wear bright turquoise hues and look great. Some of the choice is just personal preference =)
