Going head-to-toe in teal is a surefire way to get noticed—by the paparazzi or that cutie next door. For those of you who are a bit color-shy, try adding an accessory in the gorgeous shade. A teal bag or scarf can instantly pull together an otherwise dull winter outfit. Or if it's modernity you're after, try rocking a pair of teal satin sandals with a black dress or suit. Très chic.
