            Turquoise is such a beautiful color. It makes you think of the beach and automatically change your mood.  Sometimes it is so hard and confusing when it comes to finding the right color to pair it with. Today we are pairing turquoise with brown, a darker color that complements it. Turquoise is the color you get when you mix blue and green together. There are different shades of turquoise. For example: we have light turquoise, medium turquoise, Celeste turquoise, dark turquoise, blue turquoise and so on.
 The exact opposite color to brown on the color wheel is blue,which means we can pair any color from the blue family with brown.


Pairing Brown with turquoise:

  1. Turquoise top, two-piece brown suits (pants or skirt) as an accent color for work
  2. Brown dress, turquoise shoes, nice brown clutch purse for date/dinner night
  3. Striped brown/black skirt, turquoise top, black shoes for a casual look
  4. Turquoise skinny jeans/skirt, nice brown cheetah top, black heels, for an  after-five look.
  5. Turquoise gown, brown shoes, brown clutch purse for a wedding, or a more formal event. 
 A pair of nude shoes is also appropriate when pairing brown with turquoise, as it keeps the outfit balances and does not take away from either color.
