16 Summer Outfits in Turquoise/Aqua

Following up on my recent outfit of the day post with the turquoise t-shirt knit skirt and cardigan, I have put together 16 summer OOTDs from the last few years that are based on turquoise or aqua items. Note that pieces absolutely do repeat across these outfits! In fact, I have tried to organize the photos to make those linkages between outfits more obvious. I've also included the color/print combination description with each photo. I hope you find something here to help inspire your summer style!


I also decided to add the cost, number of wears, and cost per wear stats for each of these items. As part of my intention to have a more sustainable wardrobe, I am focusing on the 30 wears & <$1 cost per wear (CPW) metrics for the items in my closet. I am sharing these stats because (a) I am always interested in seeing them in other bloggers' posts and (b) I hope to encourage all of us (whether we track our wardrobe stats or not) to keep the ideas of wears and CPW in mind. I am also happy to say that of the 7 items featured here, 6 of them were purchased secondhand!

I have quite a lot of turquoise accessories but not a lot of clothing in that colour - you are making me regret that a little with these outfits as I love that skirt on you! There was a beautiful tiered maxi in this colour at a local store I admired but I thought about it too long and it sold out - should have just bought it when I had the chance!


Thank you for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup! Hope you are having a lovely weekend :)

I know how that goes - waiting to make a decision and then it's too late. Hopefully you'll get another chance at a turquoise skirt another time.

These color combinations are ones that I particularly enjoy. With hair and skin tones that trend toward the autumn/warm spring palette, I've always incorporated turquoise and aqua in my wardrobe. My favorite outfit in this post is the one with the orchid and aqua/teal combination. Thank you for participating in Talent-Sharing Tuesdays Link-Up 26.

Yes, I can see how this would be a great color for you. It's actually a pretty good color on most people, I think, and it certainly mixes well with other colors. I need to remember to do the orchid + aqua combination again because that was a fun one.

It's one of my favorite colors but I don't have much of it. I especially like your turquoise pants.
