Val’s View: Why Turquoise and Coral Resort Wear Are Universally Flattering

Posted on 30 March 2015

Let’s be honest: We all want to look our best on vacation. 

Regardless of where you’re traveling, you’ve planned your trip down to every detail, have spent hours daydreaming about the press of the early morning sun, the reflecting blue of the Atlantic.

And your resort wear wardrobe should be no different. 

You want to plan outfit combinations that make you look good and feel good as you bask in your vacation glow. 


In this blog, we explore color combinations that look good on everybody and every body, 

Which Colors Look Best With Warm and Cool Skin Tones 

If you were to come to my house and fling open the door to my closet, you’d find a sea of turquoise, an expanse of coral. 

My Florida resort wear wardrobe is full of turquoise and coral colors.

And while these two colors are by no means my favorite, they do make it into every bag I pack. 

Why? 

Because these shades are universally flattering.

Don’t believe me? 

I have blond hair and light eyes, and my sister has brown hair and amber eyes, but we both look fabulous in these colors.

Regardless of the garment, every piece of resort wear I don in these colors makes my eyes pop, my hair shine, and my skin glow. And my sister has the same experience.

And it’s not just my opinion. There's a science behind color, and it applies to all of us.

Don’t believe me?

Hold a piece of silver jewelry up to your face and study the result.

Next, hold a piece of gold jewelry up to your face. 

Now compare the two. Which color makes your skin look more alive and vibrant?

People with cool undertones in their skin usually look better in cool tones – this means that they look better in silver, pale corals, and pale turquoise.

Individuals with warm undertones, on the other hand, come to life next to gold, deeper turquoise, and richer coral, as well as stones set in gold.

Turquoise is a bit of a chameleon, as it can be both cool or warm, depending on the depth of color. Because turquoise is a combination of blue (a cool tone) and yellow (a warm tone), it looks good on everyone, no matter their skin tone. The same is true for coral.

Want to prove this theory for yourself?

Val's tip of the week: Explore Turtle Beach on Siesta Key!

Floridians know why TripAdvisor readers chose Siesta Beach on Siesta Key as America's top beach. The white sand goes on forever. Here's a secret if you're a sunset lover: My husband Marv and I love Turtle Beach, which is just a couple miles south of Siesta Beach. It's less crowded than Siesta Beach and has the same white sand. And I love to wear my turtle-print top from Anthony's Resort Wear collection every time I experience the grand sunset at Turtle Beach.
