OOTD: turquoise and mint

Pin It

If you look at a color wheel, there are opposite colors and analogous colors. Opposite colors are just that; opposite to each other on the color wheel ex: orange and blue, red and green, etc. Analogous colors are next to each other on the color wheel ex: orange and red, blue and green, etc. and are thus closer related in hue and more subtle when paired together. Turquoise and mint are wonderful examples of analogous colors and I’m a huge fan of both, so for this outfit, I wore all mint and accented with turquoise jewelry paired with bright gold jewelry. Gold and turquoise are almost opposite colors and I think it’s a delicious combo too!

    I hate to be the color police, but I think complimentary and opposite colors are the same thing! Opposite ends of the color wheel, that is :) and colors near each other are analogous, as Sarah noted.

    Either way, fantastic outfit, and I love mixing gold and silver/turquoise myself! :)
