Need some outfit ideas before you try out this color combination? Scroll on down to check out four outfits featuring fuchsia and teal:
Outfit #1: Modern Bohemian
This first outfit is a simple, yet stylish way to rock this color combo. Start by pairing a gorgeous fuchsia ikat print sundress with a pair of comfy teal-colored flat sandals. Add teardrop-shaped earrings, which tie together both colors. For the finishing touch, accessorize with a boho-chic fringed handbag. This look would be perfect for attending an outdoor event on a hot summer day.
Outfit #2: Vintage Flair
For this look, pair a classic yet modern fuchsia button-up shirt with some vintage-inspired teal striped shorts. Next, add a pair of woven flats, which continue that retro vibe. Accessorize with an adorable gold elephant necklace and a pair of cool oversized sunglasses for a stylish daytime look that’s perfect for shopping or grabbing lunch with the girls.
Outfit #3: Feminine Color Blocking
The next outfit is essentially the opposite of the last — here, we’re pairing a teal top with fuchsia bottoms. Take a pair of bright fuchsia-colored skinny jeans and pair them with a sweet and simple peplum top in a pretty teal hue. Next, a silver bow belt not only adds interest, but helps to define the waistline and create an hourglass shape. Strappy black sandals add a boost of height, while a polka dot clutch lends a fun touch. Accessorize with a delicate silver ring and you’ll have a bold, yet girly color blocked look that’s perfect for a night on the town.
Outfit #4: Casual Chic
Our final look pairs dressy items with more casual pieces to create an outfit that’s perfectly balanced and stylish. Start by pairing a basic gray and white tank with an on-trend asymmetrical hem skirt in a fun fuchsia shade. Add a teal statement necklace and a pair of matching platform sandals for a bold look. Accessorize with a unique head wrap that incorporates both shades and you’ll have an easygoing, yet dressy summertime ensemble.
