Choosing a coat in your favorite shade can really enhance any outfit. And that includes your basic jeans and sweater look as well as your little black dress and heels. You can even use a jewel toned coat to add color to your work attire. See – easy?
Tie on a Scarf
Scarves are such an easy way to add personality and fun to any outfit. If you’re not ready for a jewel toned coat, try topping the one you have with a deeply colored scarf instead. The right scarf can also add pizazz to a sweater or blouse and make any outfit a statement that you’ll get loads of compliments on.
Buy New Shoes
If you’re the kind of girl that likes to ease into trends, especially those that involve lots of color, shoes may be the right route for you. A pair of jewel toned ballet flats are perfect for wearing with jeans when you go shopping or out to brunch. Jewel tones heels are great for pairing with a sheath dress or a pair of slacks for the office. It’s not hard to find shoes in deep, dark blue, purple, green or red so you won’t even have a hard time rocking this trend.
A lacy skirt is ideal for a party and you might even pull it off for work if you choose one that’s a respectable length.

Pair a jewel toned skirt with a bright white shirt for a really big impact.

You have a little bit of freedom when it comes to carrying a handbag. It doesn’t always have to match your shoes or be the same color as your outfit. By choosing a jewel toned purse, you have lots of options. You can carry it with virtually anything in your closet. Dark blue especially because it’s considered a neutral by many fashion experts. A purse is just the thing to add a pop of color to any of your favorite outfits.
Every girl should own at least one little black dress, but if you want a little colored dress too, jewel tones are the way to go.
