Fall seems to be so close, yet so far this year. With the temps still hitting the high 80s, it’s no wonder that I’ve had to put my fall wardrobe on hold until it is socially acceptable to rock a jacket in the middle of the day. *eye roll* In the meantime, I decided to share this jewel toned inspired outfit that is perfect for transitioning from summer to fall. I’ve never been a trend girl. Or a color girl for that matter. I tend to stick to the basics, and by basics I mean the same color palette; white, gray, cream and black. However, during the past few weeks I’ve begun to look at items that I currently own and how I can merge them into my fall wardrobe without spending a buck.
Jewel toned pieces have always been a thing, but they seem to really BE A THING this season, so I paired this Faux Suede Moto Jacket from Forever21 with my Velvet Clever Block Heels from Steve Madden for a chic but “not in-your-face” pop of color. I balanced the rest of the outfit with a basic white t-shirt and these fun jeans I picked up from Zara.
Am I going to continue adding color to my wardrobe? Perhaps. But one thing’s for damn sure, jewel tones are the best way to incorporate color without being borderline tacky. *sorry not sorry*
