"Trenched in Turquoise" 

So for this look I decided to pair up the coral and turquoise color combo that we saw everywhere all summer with the peach and mint color combo that other woman sported if they didn't want to be as bold as coral and turquouise.  Since the neon shade in the coral stretchy shirt I had was too bold to compliment the light tones in my scarf I toned it down with a see-through beige, lace blouse.  This was just see through enough to allow to color to pop through.   Two complimentary color combinations in the same outfit can be hard to pull off, so you want to make sure you use colors that are just different shades of one color family.
