With a depth of colour that’s almost as safe as navy or black, but far less severe, it’s clear to see the appeal of teal.
Getting plenty of airtime on the catwalks for SS15, designers like Derek Lam, Giorgio Armani, Acne and Burberry Prorsum sent shades of blue-green (from petrol to peacock) stomping down the runway. And now the trend has been given a further seal of approval by the style set, cropping up all over the shop.
Classic and refined, the high street has taken the colour to heart, providing a plethora of opportunities to get some teal allure for yourself. For day, try a leather pencil skirt or soft-silk shirt (turn the sleeves up for instant je ne sais quois-cool), while a belted-coat or drop-hemmed dress will add some emerald appeal to cocktail hour and off-duty dressing respectively.
Looking to invest in a hardworking piece? We can't get enough of Baukjen’s buttery-soft leather jacket. Team with classic black or spring whites for serious style points.
