Summer Swan Song: Why THIS Shade is the Perfect Transition Color

Calling a major Color Trend Alert: Emerald and Olive Tones are this fall’s MUST have shade! As you can see above I am fondly singing goodbye to the summer palette and adapting my summer white staples (like these American Eagle high rise jean shorts) as a base to try out warmer richer tones. I’m also rocking out with layers of necklaces and stacks of bracelets from my fav Florida designer, Angelica Smith Jewelry. Layering deep shaded precious stones, rocks, and tassels will bring glamor to even your most casual and minimal fall look, making an otherwise off the rack outfit look instantly couture!  
And when it comes to making an affordable outfit look expensive, we’ve hit the best time of year where you can easily achieve it. Why? Because it’s all about choosing the right color. I’ve begun my fall transitioning by wearing the Emerald and Olive shades, as the rich deeper green family plays perfectly with the warm cast of late summer light, making these shades seem extra verdant and lush when you’re wearing them. When still wearing thinner fabrics, fern and forest green, chocolate brown, caramel and camel tones look instantly chic, and more expensive than their ivory, white, or cooler toned counter parts. Just think about the perennially chic and classic Burberry trench… AND more importantly all it’s equally fabulous knock-offs: the shade is warm yet neutral, mixes well with almost anything, and always looks more well made than a black trench version.
So when choosing to tackle this color family, make sure to choose olive-greens that have a jewel tonality to them. Not only does this color range look good with all hair colors, but it is extremely friendly to fading tans and always seems to glimmer off any skin tone amidst the bright falling leaves and October skies. I love the idea of pairing my favorite jeans with a deep emerald-olive bootie, or finding a chunky cadmium green sweater to pair with a pencil skirt for work and meetings. Take a look at my selection of must have greenery for fall and let me know what YOU think! Would love the hear how you rock the seasons transition trends!
