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!
