I have chino shorts in three colors - pink, light blue, and turquoise. It seems like the hardest to pair are the turquoise. So far I have only worn them with white T-shirts.

I think even my favorite shade of pink would be too bright for them. I do have shirts in a lighter pink that might work. What other colors do you think would look good with turquoise chino shorts?

Lavender, purple, aqua. A pale yellow or creamy yellow. Teal, if you don't want as sharp a contrast as the other colors offer. Royal blue would look great on a guy, w/turquoise. Marine blue. Turquoise is one of my favorite colors to mix and match with.

Here in the SW, it's normal to pair turquoise with some shades of pink: it's a local theme representing the blue sky and the pinkish-red earth. It may not fly in other parts of the US. Even the freeway overpasses in Albuquerque have that color theme, seriously!

Turquoise: I can get piggy with it!

I agree with Ruth4Truth, and I also often pair tan or brown with turquoise.

Navy, gray, and some shades of red or coral.

Lime green top could be fun! Key West colors

I would love to know how people here are defining turquoise, because in my mind some of the suggested colors would clash terribly.

If you're thinking about an actual greenish turquoise, I would pair cobalt blue, coral or pale yellow.

And yes, a soft pink.

Pink Jazz: GREEN turquoise or BLUE turquoise? Generally, I'd say a shade of coral or orange but certain shades of royal blue can be nice, too.

Maybe bring the turquoise shorts with you when clothes shopping, try different color tops with the shorts and bring a trusted friend with you with a good eye for color.

The color is known as Blue Radiance (Pantone 14-4816 TCX). Seems to be more of a blue turquoise.
