Why Teal is My New Favorite Color

I don’t think I own a single teal item in my wardrobe. Actually, I think I had a cropped teal cardigan once but since it was technically only 1/3 of a normal-sized cardigan, I’m not counting it. I recently realized my lack of teal-wear while standing in my bathroom, admiring my generic paintings from HomeGoods while brushing my teeth. As I looked around, I noticed that the color was everywhere. I have teal tiles, teal towels, teal-colored mouthwash (Arctic Mint). Even my toothpaste tube has teal accents! Under the bright, and (luckily) flattering bulbs, I realized how much I love this color! Then I started seeing it on celebrities and on the recent spring runways. Apparently, the designers at Aquafresh and Listerine are more on trend than I am!

Take a look at some of these photos and you’ll see why teal is quickly becoming my new favorite color!

I saw this photo of Charlize Theron at the premiere of her latest movie, Snow White and the Huntsman, and my eyes were immediately drawn to her dangly teal earrings. I loooove them! And I can’t even talk about her smokey eye…it’s too good. This whole look is perfection.

We all know Christopher Bailey makes a mean trench coat, but this jacket…come on. I’d sell my soul for this jacket. Haha, just kidding…(But really). Burberry Prorsum Spring 2012 RTW (Photo from Elle.com)
