Color Candy: Teal

Autumn’s color candy is definitely teal. This shade adds much-needed flavor to neutrals like camel, black and gray and complements just about every color of your palette (so tasty with fall’s orange, navy, emerald and mustard pieces!). Sweeten up any outfit by working in a teal accessory, like the glimmering Matthew Williamson clutch above. Really satisfy your appetite with a teal cord or pencil skirt…you won’t regret it. Mix shades of teal, cobalt, and emerald for an ensemble inspired by the the peacock feather, a natural source of color candy. Go ahead. It’s time to indulge!
