As winter approaches, you can expect your cute outfits to only see the light of a tiny classroom shared with other sniffling college kids. But just because you have to drown in a parka when you’re outside, doesn’t mean what is underneath needs to mirror the frigidness of the air. Ditch the winter blues and embrace the jewel tone trend happening this fall with this Fashionista.
Caught between classes, this Fashionista rocked a teal jewel toned shirt layered with a chambray button-up. She paired this with beautiful leather boots and a black skinny jean, creating the ideal busy day of school outfit. The neutrality of the pant and layered shirt allow the richness of the jewel shirt to be the center of the outfit and that’s what makes this trend so great on her.
We saw jewel tones all over the Fashion Week runways, so it is no surprise that they started showing up on campus. Additionally, with Pantone picking emerald as the color of 2013, this Fashionista is on point with her shirt color choice. The V-neck makes it a great casual T-shirt, but the color is what sets it apart. Jewel tones (emerald, ruby or amethyst, etc) are great for the changing season because of the rich, sophisticated warm feeling that comes from them.
The first thing you need to do is get yourself a jewel toned piece to incorporate into your wardrobe. Whether a sweater, a shirt or pants, find a shade that works best for you style and make it the focal point of your outfit like this Fashionista. To get this look, I started with a burgundy scarf that is the perfect accent to my brown jacket. Keep the cut simple, but the color brilliant and you’ll be good to go.
