Jewel tones are so marvelous. There’s a shade in that range for just about everyone, they exude elegance, and you can mix them together endlessly into rich, vibrant outfits. These blues and purples are on the cool side of the jewels, which makes them work beautifully with gunmetal gray accents. And a little leopard for good measure. (Wore this before we dropped down into negative double-digit windchills. Brrrr.)

    Red may be your favorite color, but you look absolutely stunning in these shades of blue!

    You look great. How on earth are you standing outside in MN these last few days??

      Thanks! The photos only take a few minutes to do, but as I said above, this is from before the deep freeze set in.

    The leopard belt is genius (a Gracie “Add Interest” belt, I believe!). I never would have thought to add that into a jewel-tone mix, but it takes it somewhere brilliant.

    these colours are GORGEOUS together; brings out the pretty pink tones in skin and the red in your hair =) pretty pretty pretty!

    Funnily enough, just before I saw this I was picking out an outfit for tomorrow and trying to put together a similar mix. I couldn’t quite make it work out, for all the variety of jewel tone blues/greens I own. Saving this one for future inspiration. 🙂

    Love this look. Sometimes I try to wear different shades of the same color together but it never looks as harmonious as this combination is on you. You just effortlessly pull it off, Sal!

    Blues and greens! My favorite combo (next to reds/purples/roses). Woohoo!

    I love this outfit. I’m all about the blues and jewel tones. I might try an “inspired by” version tomorrow if I can do it without freezing to death.
