Turquoise in winter

Feather-print dress, ASOS. Black cotton coat, A.L.E. Scarf, PULL&BEAR. Turquoise tights, ACCESSORIZE via Factory Outlet. Black leather belt, grandma's vintage. Tan tote bag, MANGO. Aviator sunglasses, RAYBAN. Black plastic flats, Vivienne Westwood Anglomania for Melissa.

Turquoise is generally considered a summer colour.

However, I woke up one morning in the dead of winter and decided to pair my bright turquoise tights with two totally different prints and a black coat et voilà! I quite like the result. I guess it helps if you live in sunny Greece.

Love the brightness of the tights. There's no doubt that some bright coloured tights are the best to cheers us up on winter days.

You look very nice today! I am a Portuguese living in Greece for the last 15 years(in Crete). I follow your blog some months now: I think you give a ''fresh'' air to the fashion blogs in general, a more ''down to hearth'' approach! Well done. Yesterday I discovered a new blog (nice one): kendieveryday.blogspot

Ta leme!

It's a great color indeed. I found a pair of wellies in that color and I was sooo close buying them but went for a safer choice (taupe). Now I've seen this post I'm having second thoughts!!!

I have the same tights and I love them. I usually wear them with total black look and they always receive good comments!

i think matching colours to seasons is one of those rules that is so fun to break. a couple of winters ago i was wearing white jeans in december, hehe. the brightness of the tights is so cheerful, i love it! x
