Hue ambiguity

This is the cardigan I purchased at H&M when I was in New York last week. I initially thought that it was seafoam (or mint, if you prefer) but now that I think about it, it's a little too saturated to be seafoam, which is generally quite pale.
It's not turquoise, since turquoise is more blue than green, and it's not teal, becuase teal is much, much darker.
It might also be worth noting that these Towne & Reese bracelets are a perfect color match for the cardigan, and the color they are listed as is turquoise. 
So what color is it?

  1. I'm not sure exactly what color it is...I'd say seafoam-ish, I think?

    Whatever the case it is a wonderful color and does match the bangle perfectly. Love the zebra print & dotted tights. A really pretty outfit that looks terrific on you.

  2. I love the detail and the color of your jewelry and the fact that your bracelet matched your card is too awesome.

  4. Not sure about the color--I think seafoam is pretty close. You look great! I love the bold graphic top with the softer pastel cardigan!

  5. It looks turquoise to me, but a turquoise with a lot of greenish cast to it. Love that skirt that zips up the back.

  7. I asked my husband, just for fun, what colour this is.
    'Green.'
    'Yeah, but what kind of green?'
    'Light green. Duh.'

    So yeah, I'm gonna just go with that, although I was going to say seafoam :D

  8. I think it's more seafoamish, although it also looks just green to me in these photos. At any rate, you look great!

  9. In Hungarian I would call it pistachio. :) It's like pistachio ice cream, yum!

  10. Hmmm...you're right. Difficult to pin down the exact colour name, but I do think mint is the closest. Looking lovely and minty fresh my dear! :)

  13. That is a tricky color. Too green to be aqua, but a little too blue to be mint. I would call it Jade maybe? Love the polka dot tights and zebra print top combo:)

  14. I can't help you on the color but you look particularly stunning in these photos. Your hair, makeup, those swiss-dot tights, everything is perfection.

  15. I have absolutely no idea what the name of this colour would be... I'd say dark seafoam? and the H&M website just says it's "green" haha! x

  16. idk the exact color BUT, i do like it :-) love the zipper in the back...this look is very "smart-chic". lol, i just made that up!

  17. I love your blouse! I don't see a lot of zebra print on people - mostly just leopard print.

    Maybe you could just call the cardigan...dark seafoam green? Hmm, that still doesn't sound right. Greenish turquoise? Dang, that's a hard color to place!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Whatever color it is (I'd say seafoam...or mint!) I love it and it looks great on you. Nice find!

    How have you been dear?

    Love & Cake,

  19. Oh dear, you know that a similar thing happened to me with a pair of green H&M jeans I bought. I am still not sure the exact colour (I called them emerald)... but your sweater is definitely lighter. mmm sea foam perhaps yes!

    Anyways! I loved it how you paired it with the polka dotted tights!

  20. You're right, it is sort of a difficult color to pin point. Well, whatever it is, it looks fantastic on you. I love how the color of your hair contrasts with the color of the cardigan. And I also really like your polka dot tights!

  21. I think it's relatively close to Pistachio Green. I looked up the color on Pantone and on my screen it matched your cardigan - LOL!

    I absolutely love the outfit! The zebra blouse with polka dot tights...nice mix of patterns.

    You inspire me!

  22. I like this color a lot :) I like this whole outfit a lot-- the sheer and the necklaces, and the bracelets... accessorized to perfection. This green color is actually very common in turquoise gemstones, but most most jewelers favor the bluer turquoise. I like this one, though. I think it's underused.

  23. Very pretty - that is a fabulous skirt.
    And in regards to the color... maybe we can label it "dark seafoam" ?

  24. Gorgeous and ready for a fantastic weekend.

  33. I wonder if H&M would be able to comment on this : )? You look amazing in the color though. We seem to be thinking in the same hues. I've been stalking all sorts of light green shades on etsy.

  37. I was really hoping it was Cerulean so I could quote The Devil Wears Prada. Shucks, lol.

    Maybe its a dark mint? Or avocado? Either way, its absolutely beautiful.

  45. Great post ♥ I love the blouse, looks great on you.

  46. I love that sweater, sort of a seafoam i would think. And that zipper is so cute down the back of the skirt. I just got some polka dotted tights as well. Super cute! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hmm dark sea foam? It is still a lovely color for spring!

  48. Muted seafoam! Maybe that's a color. But maybe that's not specific enough. It's okay, I thought I knew what royal blue was until I discovered there were many different shades of it. Colors, bro. They were made to confuse us.

    This is so perfect though. I love how your mutedseaformmintgreenmermaid cardigan pops against all the black and white. I like that you layered your necklaces under your collar, too. Fun fun!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'd say turquoise. Or green. Because I like being exact, you know.

    I don't know another blogger who has so much great animal print.

    ReplyDelete
  50. so this color is seafoam! it's very pretty! btw, you are right, i need to stop overestimating my size and buy stuff that fits ;) thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Seafoam sounds like a good way to describe this cardigan. Whatever the color is, I LOVE IT.
