Jewel Tones for Fall/Winter

Jewel__Tones_Isle_of_Skye_CashmereWhile browsing through recent runway shows (such as Prada, Chanel, and Dior) I noticed a recurring theme: jewel tones. These ruby, sapphire, emerald, and citrine colors were bold, yet sophisticated.

I believe that the easier, and sometimes better, way to wear color this fall is to pair it with neutral colors. Against a neutral palette, the colored piece(s) you choose to wear will really pop! A couple of ways to incorporate color into a neutral-colored outfit would include: wearing a pair of shoes that coordinate with your purse/clutch, wearing a bright colored coat, or even a chunky, colored necklace. Even makeup and nail polish will allow you to wear color.

In the photo, I styled the model with a pair of our DL1961 jeans in a black wash, a button-up white blouse, a red cashmere V-neck sweater, and a red cape that I made. The pop of the ruby-red in the cape and sweater really ties her outfit together nicely.

Don’t retire your colors just because summer has ended for the year. Find fun ways to incorporate your colored pieces into your Fall/Winter wardrobe and you won’t regret it!

Come in Wednesday through Friday from 10 AM to 5 PM and Saturdays 10 AM to 4 PM to see our amazing sweaters in fantastic colors!

  1. I love the cape, and the red is a great pop of color! I will be adding a few new pieces in jewel tones to update my wardrobe.

  2. The red cape is STUNNING, I stopped immediately to try to locate the cape on your web site. Now I am disappointed to read that it was hand made. I wish you could find matching little capes like this to sell in a few of the colors you offer.
    Gorgeous look.
