The color trends for fall 2012 are quite eye catching, bold and somewhat stray from the usual expected fall colors of warm reds and oranges. While there are still touches of warm tones, the majority of the colors are jewel tone like with cobalt blues, emerald greens and magentas. Personally, the emerald green trend is by far my favorite and this trendy color paired with black comes across so elegant. Recently seen in runway shows of Gucci and Lanvin, this Fashionista proves to be a sartorially inclined leader when spotted pairing the rich color of emerald and black. Needless to say, I’m a fan.
Spotted in a simple black top, a pair of light black flared denim jeans and beautiful emerald green kimono cardigan, this Fashionista comes out on the top of the simply-chic list. The other stand out item of her ensemble is her knockout necklace—everything about it is stunning, from the unique style to how it makes her outfit really pop. Creative accessories are the best way to dress up any outfit, and this necklace is the perfect example.
In order to recreate a look like this Fashionista’s, don’t worry about going overboard because the key to an outfit like this is to dress simply but have a couple head-turning pieces. Put together a look of neutrals, whether it is a skirt or pair of pants, then choose something that will stand out, like this Fashionista chose the emerald cardigan. If that’s still not enough, throw on some statement jewelry and you will be set. People will think you’ve put a lot of thought into your outfit when in reality, choosing your ensemble took less time than putting on your makeup. Lesson of the day: choose the pieces of your outfit wisely and it won’t matter how simple your look is. Dress it up with one or two pieces that will pop and voila—an adorable outfit is made.
