Teal is a combination of blue-green shades. It is generally associated with the summer season. Teal occasionally is included in autumn’s color palette. It is entirely possible to create a teal capsule wardrobe for all seasons.
In this post, I will share how to create a year-round teal capsule wardrobe, the essentials, and the outfit ideas.
Let’s get started!
What is a Capsule Wardrobe?
A capsule wardrobe is a collection of curated clothing items that can be paired with one another to create different outfits daily. Capsule wardrobes can be revised based on your needs at the moment.
How to Create a Capsule Wardrobe Color Palette?
In this post, teal is the main color in the color palette. I will share how to create a color palette that complements each other including the teal color.
Include base colors
Base colors are the key to building outfits. Colors like black and white are a must-have in any capsule wardrobe’s color palette.
Choose your neutrals
Neutral colors can be varied from one individual to another. This depends on what skin tone and skin undertone you have. Some of the neutral colors are beige, tan, brown, khaki, and taupe. Learn how to determine your skin tone and undertone here.
Pick complement colors
Not every color looks good with teal. Choose the best colors to pair with teal. For example, the combination of teal & coral, teal & pastel yellow, teal & burgundy, teal & purple, and teal & powder blue.
