A Touch of Turquoise

Isn’t it amazing how turquoise is always so consistent. Its almost on parr with Navy. The obvious colours like black and white are always in, navy too is always about, but Turquoise is not often a hot topic, yet it always looks so gorgeous no matter what form it comes in.  The beautiful shade comes and goes like the tides but is never unobtainable and is usually more prominent in pages of Vogue around the summer months, however its so classical and chic too when brought out in the form of a ring or necklace to add a pop of colour to a dark outfit in winter, as Cate Blanchett so gracefully showed us at the 2015 Academy Awards with her Tiffany Blue Collection necklace (below).  That was one of my favourite outfits of the night, so simple but so elegant, effective and SO glamorous!

Does your watch define your style (the men’s edit)

I think subconsciously the watch a man choose’s to wear defines his style, not just the design but the brand too. A leather strap Omega is classic and subtle, a gold Rolex or Cartier watch is more formal and flashy which probably means if the man isn’t dressed in a suit most of the time he’s sporting a smart casual vibe on the weekend. The sporty Casio Rubber Chronograph style most probably means he spends most of his life in outdoor gear.  Or a Nixon or Marc Jacobs depicts a fashion forward trendsetter. I have picked three watches from the premier auction site, Invaluable and styled an outfit around each watch to show you just what I am talking about. Slide2
