Now that we’re well into Autumn, one of the things that we’re loving about the current fashion trend is the colours. The trending jewel tones that we’ve seen from the runways at fashion week and translated into our everyday street fashion are rich and luxurious.
Forget black -oxblood, emerald and navy are all must haves in our autumn/winter wardrobes. Jewel tones are a perfect way to dress up a look and add colour to an outfit without feeling like a beacon of summery florals.
Behold, the tips and inspiration that you need to incorporate these trendy colours into your wardrobe.
Better than Black
For those who are a little afraid of colour and need an easy first step to transition themselves into the jewel-toned trend, navy is the perfect option. Flattering on all skin-tones, navy is a really easy colour to wear. Pair it with black, white or just about any colour – this one’s a neutral that you’ll have on high rotation in your autumn wardrobe.
Block it out
Choose your favourite deep colour this autumn and stick to it. Whether it’s rocking that wine-toned dress or strutting head-t0-toe in your favourite emerald pieces, this look offers both a bold and sophisticated feel. Block colours are also a great opportunity to experiment with shapes and textures so don’t be afraid to mix it up with lush ruffles, velvets and furs.
Starting to feel a little more daring? Include two jewel tones into one look for the ultimate wow-factor this Autumn. A really easy way to pull this offer is to choose accessories that feature the complementary colours in your ensemble. Make that deep oxblood coloured dress pop with a green emerald scarf or shawl. It can even be as subtle as a pair of earrings or statement necklace.
