Add a little color to your fall wardrobe! As many of you may know I am an advocate for all things bright and bold. Usually for the fall and winter months we tend to gravitate towards colors that are….hmmmm how can I put this…..dull. Most of the time I just see black, grey, navy blue, and olive green. Guess what? Your fall wardrobe does not have to be a drab! You can still get the feel and look of summer and spring by adding bright and bold pieces to your wardrobe.

Brighten up your fall wardrobe with jewel tones. Jewel tones are colors like sapphire, emerald, ruby, etc. colors that reflect jewels pretty much. They are deep, rich, and compliments all skin tones. Other colors that could fall in this category would be royal blue, royal purple, rich raspberry, deep teal etc.

You can incorporate these colors into your wardrobe a number of ways. You can start with colored denim. Yes your same bright colored jeans from spring/summer can be transitioned into the fall. Trade your sandals in for a pair of booties and a leather jacket. Also try color blocking amber and emerald, raspberry and royal blue, amber and ruby, there are numerous possibilities. To achieve a cohesive color block look for the fall go with the darker/deeper tones on bottom and the brighter tones on top. This will give a slimming effect for those who want to minimize their bottom half as well.

Hey my loves!

I was browsing Essence.com and came across two photos. One of our First Lady Michelle Obama and Selita Ebanks. Both were wearing the illustrious color Royal Blue.

Now I am partial to the color because of the greatest sorority ever, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. I also like the color because of it’s meaning. The color blue is often associated with depression, but it also meansĀ peace, loyalty, confidence, and harmony.

So here are a few picks that will have you looking and feeling confident in royal blue!
