Style feature: How to wear bright and jewel tones
There is nothing wrong with gravitating toward neutral or dark shoes. In fact, we said they are indispensable part of every woman’s closet (See Style Feature: How to Wear Neutrals). However, injecting bright and jewel tones into an outfit can make you feel sophisticated and look like royalty.
Make more room for brights and jewels in your shoe closet. Trust us, people will stare as they are hard to ignore. Here are our tips on how to wear shoes with bright and jewel tones.
If you have been postponing getting green for your shoe closet, now is the perfect time (See Pantone’s 2017 Color of The Year). Green is an opulent jewel tone. Think of bright green, say emerald or Kelly green, as a statement color. It looks amazing with mustard, grey, yellow, pale blue, electric blue, white, black, gold, orange, and light pink.
The ultimate stunner shade. Red is one of the most exciting and boldest colors. Pair it with plum, black, grey, orange, caramel, gold, brown, sky blue, electric blue, navy, khaki, lavender, green, and every shade of pink. If you want a pop of yellow hue in your outfit, we recommend mustard.
This is another color that is easy to mix and match. Blue or any other color that comes in a metallic finish adds sophistication and luxury to your look (See Metallic Is The New Black). Wear it with black, yellow, white, brown, gold, silver, beige, burgundy, deep pink, and pine green. Thinking about pairing it with neons for a more fun look? You can. Just proceed with caution.
This color is just so hard to ignore. Its warmth and vividness makes it a flattering choice for a variety of skin tones. For a bold look, pair it with other brights or jewels such as emerald, royal blue, purple, and teal. Or ground the brightness of deep pink with neutral pairings such as black, white, beige, gray, and navy. Pastels and other light colors like dusty rose also look great!
This color is not for the faint-hearted but it certainly adds zing to an outfit. It goes pretty well with royal blue, cream, white, green, teal, pink, navy, purple, and black. Teaming orange with denim and navy makes it stand out.
