Colour Trend: Teal

I may have had a little look in some actual shops last week, and was struck by how much teal is around this season, which is good news for me as I love this stunning combination of blue and green and already have a few things ready and waiting in my wardrobe. Teal seems to work well with everything from understated neutrals to bold brights - teal trousers are beautifully offset with light neutrals (ivory, cream, beige) and the colour works equally well to break up darker neutrals like grey and black.

Here are my favourites of all things teal:

First up, this gorgeous fine knit V-neck from Hush, that is perfect for layering as a transitional piece:

Fine Knit V-Jumper £49.50

And a shirt dress that is perfect for a relaxed, laid back look:

Iris Shirt Dress £79

Love this colour combination in a classic Breton from Boden:

Long Sleeve Breton £25

Teal is a stunning colour for a leather jacket, love this one in dark teal from River Island:

Dark Teal Leather Biker Jacket £130

It's also a fantastic colour for a parka, I would get this one from Oasis if I didn't already have my khaki one (love the contrasting fur hood)

Bella Fur Lined Parka £88

Oasis also has this stunning bird print top:

Peter Ting Bird Print Woven Front Top £38

My Olivia Burton rose gold watch has been my favourite accessory this year and I absolutely adore this butterfly version with a teal strap:

Olivia Burton Teal Butterfly Watch £75

Accessories are a perfect way to inject some teal into your outfit, as the colour goes with almost everything. I have a teal scarf that with black stars on it that I wear such a lot in the winter, but it's all about blanket scarves this autumn and I love this one from Whistles:

Blanket Scarf £75

And wearing teal yesterday - for the school run, then two different meetings:

Black Boyfriend Blazer - Topshop (old)
Grey Zara Top - Zara AW14
Teal Trousers - Zara AW11
Leopard Skater Shoes - Office SS14
Backpack - Mint Velvet AW14

Have you got any teal lurking in your wardrobe? I would love to hear from you!

  1. Hope you are well Abbi! yes I;ve spotted lots of this colour too as well as all the dark aubergine type colours. Not sure if it's because I've got red hair but I tend to gravitate more towards the purple colours than blues, but I love your picks they will look fab with your blonde hair. The Whistles scarf is beautiful, I've just clicked through and they also have it in .. pink which is so typical of me! Also spotted the Hush Iris dress that is lovely x

  2. I haven't got any teal but could make an exception for that Hush jumper! Looking fab Abbi x

  3. I love this colour but I don't think I have ever tried it! I could be very tempted by the Hush the shape of it, would be fab with ankle boots! xx

  4. I want to love teal but it doesn't love me. I can wear it in terms of the colour but it makes me feel really drab and I have no idea why!!!!!!

  5. Teal is a brill colour for Softs Abbi. I had a love affair with it about 4 years ago, then went off it and now I'm liking it again. Love your outfit x

  6. I'm a huge fan of teal, such a gorgeous colour. Love the Oasis bird print top. So pretty. Lynne x
