I happened upon this article and found this to be a beautiful combination.  I love to see turquoise and red in jewelry but never thought about applying it to formal attire and this REALLY works!


Do Turquoise & Red Go Together?

Style Spy Says: BerryIs it appropriate to wear a turquoise dress with candy apple red heels? My boyfriend doesn't think it looks stylish.

"The combination of turquoisea universally flattering color—and a classic blue-red candy-apple color is a fantastic and very chic mix," confirms image expert Jeane B. "Red is considered a secondary neutral, and accents all skin, hair and eye tones perfectly. So combining the two colors, while unique and unexpected, is a wonderful option!"
As long as the rest of your look remains simple, you have nothing to fear, my dear. And by simple, we mean "accenting either the eyes or the mouth, and definitely in a neutral color scheme which accents natural coloring," B. explains.

Finish it all off with a simple pony tail or chignon, and you're ready for your cosmo.


Simple but Bold .. Southwestern Style at $32

The second picture here is a necklace that I just posted (on my Etsy Store) with this same color combination.  It is a southwestern style necklace composed of turquoise and red beads with accents of silver.  It is simple but makes a very BOLD statement at the same time. 

The necklace is listed for only $32.00 and would be a compliment to any outfit.  For more views, click on the picture.
