The combination of light green and blue, which is turquoise, combines the 'serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green' and is supposed to be an extremely positive colour, reminding us – according to Pantone LLC - of 'sparkling Caribbean waters and spiritual stones'.
Frankly, not me! Yes, it can be beautiful as a necklace, brooch or earrings, and it's just acceptable as an accessoire, but for clothes? Only for the under 10-years-olds or at the beach. (If at all)
But perhaps it’s just my problem. This supposedly invigorating green-blue combination makes me look like I was suffering from acute sickness (one would think a greenish colour should go nicely with reddish hair, but in fact it just makes me look like I’ve just thrown up).
I think I’ll give this up-and-coming hue a miss and rather stick with red. Although according to the Financial Times this is also a difficult colour to wear.
