Fall Fashion Trend: Jewel Tones
With fall quickly approaching, one of the things I'm most looking forward to is jewel tones. Rich, luxurious colors like oxblood, emerald, navy, and fuchsia are just a few tones seen on the runways that will make their way to your local department store. Jewel tones are a perfect way to dress up a look and give a pop of color to a rather normal fall outfit.
One of my favorite ways to incorporate jewel tones into my wardrobe is through accessorizing. By doing this you are not only on trend, but also able to ease your way into this fall trend without making a huge commitment. Plus, many of these accessories can be paired with other pieces in your closet, creating many new looks.
But you certainly shouldn't save jewel tones for just your accessories. A gorgeous, leather navy or oxblood mini skirt would be a smart investment that could be worn for many seasons to come. If you're still a bit color shy, start with baby steps; you can't go wrong with a pair of oxblood colored denim like Helena's (far left). They're a neutral that can be dressed up or down with a dozen things you probably already own.
You can also keep your jewel-tone look toned down by wearing navy like Danielle did in the second picture. Navy is an extremely easy-to-shop color that really does work for almost anyone! Her low-key jewel-tone sweater and skirt are casual, on trend, and perfect for a fall day.
Starting to feel a little more daring? Try adding two jewel tones into one look. Alicia, in the third picture from the left, wore a shimmery emerald green top and paired it with a jewel-tone bag. This complimentary color scheme makes each piece of her outfit stand out.
You haven't conquered this trend until you've rocked the monochromatic jewel tone look. Blair (far right) paired a metallic leather oxblood skirt with the same oxblood-tone sweater. The two pieces look like they were made for each other when, in fact, they're two totally different brands.
Whether you want to let your jewel-tone accessories do all the talking or be fashion forward with a monochromatic jewel-tone look, adding jewel tones into your fall wardrobe is on trend, easy, and can be extremely affordable!
