Wear It Twice: Jewel Tones

This month’s fashion inspiration is jewel tones - intense shades of ruby and emerald. The challenge is to pair up these greens and reds without looking like Christmas. By including soft shades of teal and adding dramatic black, the saturated palette looks right at home for fall.

The multi-strand cord necklace is very warm, not only in color but in texture as well. For both outfits, I paired it with classy trench coats and bold statement rings. The chunky black and red resin bangle adds a bit of fun.

  1. I love the teal pairing! Beautiful choices. Teals and dark greens are probably my favorite jewel tones. I love dark raspberry shades, too.

  2. I never would have thought to wear ruby red with teal. I love it and will be trying it out later this week!
