In many cultures, Turquoise occupies a very special position in the world of color.  It is believed to be a protective talisman, a color of deep compassion and healing, and a color of faith and truth, inspired by water and sky. Through years of color word-association studies, we also find that Turquoise represents an escape to many – taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy.
In fashion, Turquoise makes a statement that can look elegant and dressy in fine silk and gemstones, or casual and fun in cotton and athletic apparel. Because of its versatility, Turquoise is a great accent color in jewelry, purses, shoes, hair accessories and even nail polish for women, and ties, shirts and sportswear for men.

I like to match up turquoise with beige. This combination of colors makes very summer and fresh look and provides the good mood for the whole day. Have you ever heard that the colors of clothes influence on our mood tremendously. I was thoroughly impressed when I read about it, but life proves that this is true. Besides, I like turquoise in all kind of accessories - bijouterie, bags, shoes, scarfs, purses. It's a very lovely color which can brighten up any look.
