Trend Worth Trying ::: Jewel Tones

Every year, right around this time, jewel tones come blazing back in a big way. It's essentially the Fall trend du jour. And how could it not be? The colors are rich and cozy, and best of all, can easily be worked into a year round wardrobe, especially if they're lighter pieces.

The biggest color picks this year are Sapphire, Teal and Wine, which all the cool kids are calling "oxblood" these days.  Eggplant is also back, but the focus seems to be on the blues and greens and teals, which suits me just fine.  Almost my entire closet is devoted to those three colors, in a way that Stacy and Clinton would rabidly pillage and toss things into that aluminum trash can while screaming "boring!" before pouring themselves a hard drink in the styling room and declaring me a nightmare (they wouldn't be wrong, exactly...)  But I have learned what works with my skin, hair and eyes, and refuse to allow my hair to get lost or compete.

Here are my top picks across all budgets to make your closet look like a pretty stylin' jewelry box this Fall.  Seriously, Old Navy and the Gap are killin' it this season!
