Runways for fall from Diane Von Furstenberg to Gucci exploded with rich, deep jewel tones, and we know you can’t wait to dazzle in the trend. As September nears we can begin to think about our fall colour palette, and these precious stone shades will take the place of summer’s pastels and brights. We love the colour-blocking and tough black leather accents seen at Gucci, where the theme for jewel tones was texture, texture, texture.
This fall, jewel tones will be done in a deep, regal way. Think dark and theatrical looks with the combination of jewel hues seen at Gucci including deepest ruby, richest amethyst, delicious sapphire and seductive emerald. Balance these luxe shades with glossy leather, and wear textures from lace to silk and velvet and everything in between. Extravagant doesn’t even begin to cut it.
These separates in our favourite saturated tones will incorporate seamlessly into your wardrobe with the pieces you own now. Pair these on-trend bordeaux-hued Cycle skinnies with a sheer black blouse, black rocker-chic boots like this Pour La Victoire pair, and layer upon layer of opulent necklaces that evoke a vintage feel. We love this Betsey Johnson statement necklace for starters. Wear jewel tones together, like this Theyskens’ Theory deep emerald blouse tucked into our Vanessa Bruno Athe amethyst skirt, and pair with black lace up booties and the deep wine lip we loved on runways for fall.
