Sapphires In The Sky
“Shine bright like a diamond” might be yet another catchy Rihanna lyric, but it’s the sapphires, emeralds and amethysts we know are the true stars this holiday season. How much did you love this Burberry Prorsum look Emma Stone wore to the Vogue Fashion Fund Awards a few months ago? Well, we thought it was absolutely fabulous. The peplum, the combination of textures, and most of all- those rich jewel tones.

While your celebrating counterparts will likely choose New Year’s faithfuls black, gold, or silver for their glittery frocks, you’ll be the fashion forward one — you always are — in saturated gemstone shades of green, blue, purple and red. Take a hint from Emma, and flaunt more than one jewel tone at once. This is colour-blocking’s extravagant older sister!

By mixing textures and keeping silhouettes bold and interesting, jewel tones make a huge statement on their own. Stand out in rare New Year’s Eve style at your party or event by choosing a deep blue velvet cocktail dress as seen at Gucci, or try emerald lace with tone-on-tone accents and touches of blue like at Lanvin. Whichever gem shade you choose, opt for a clean, glowing makeup look and feminine locks. Your midnight kiss will never forget the girl in the green…or blue.
