Hello friend! When I received this Picadilly Canada dress in cobalt blue, I knew right away I wanted to pair it with turquoise. That’s because I love that color combination. Luckily, because turquoise is one of my favorite colors, I have many pieces in that color. Therefore the cobalt and turquoise outfit came together pretty easily!
Cobalt and Turquoise Outfit: Color Theory
According to color theory, turquoise is actually a tertiary color, made by combing a primary color (blue) and a secondary color (green). Therefore combining blue and turquoise is harmonious due to the colors being analogous on the color wheel. I have done a similar analogous color crush post for my pink and orange outfit. I’ve explained analogous colors in depth there, so check it out!
Cobalt and Turquoise Outfit: The Dress
It was my first time working with Picadilly Canada. They had a lot of pretty dresses on their site, so picking one was no problem. When it arrived it was very striking in person. Besides the bold color (which I love!), the cut of the dress is exquisite. It is figure flattering, but not overtly sexy. It is perfect for family or church events where you want to look good but still be somewhat modest.
The asymmetric hem is another detail that sets this dress apart from others. It helps elongate the figure, which I could certainly use!
The last detail of the dress that I adore are the grommets at the the neckline, cuffs and hem of the dress. They add a modern touch and some attitude to this dress. I think you can even wear this with some killer booties and a leather jacket for a more bada** look!
Cobalt and Turquoise Outfit: The Accessories
Because I love turquoise so much, I often pick up accessories in that color. I have multiple pairs of earrings, a pair of shoes and two purses! I recommend that if you love a color to have some accessories of that color in your closet. Then you can throw it on any time to add life to an outfit. Luckily for me, because of all these accessories, I easily created my cobalt and turquoise outfit.
When I saw these Sam Edelman pumps in turquoise, I knew I would wear them for years to come. So I quickly snapped them up.
I also paired these fun Baublebar tassel earrings with the dress. I thought that two small pops of turquoise against the large expanse of cobalt was just the right amount.
Therefore for my purse, I decided to not go with turquoise. Instead, I opted for a metallic silver to mirror the metallic grommets in the dress.
I love the way this color combination turned out. I will likely wear a cobalt and turquoise outfit again. Would you?
