Last week, I had two marvelous clients, both of whom owned loads and loads of jewel-toned clothing. And I talked about gray as an alternative neutral to black, and how it would let the jewel tones really shine instead of sucking the life out of them. And then I wore this: Black and jewel tones. Because the outfit just fell together so nicely, and because style “rules” are made to be bent and broken. Though I totally deserve an earful from my clients for my colorful hypocrisy.

    Your outfit is darkest possible jewel tones, so they can stand up to black. Casual and sumptuous!

    I just bit the bullet last week and bought a pair of gray trousers (NYDJ twill in a mid-gray called “cobblestone”) to go with my mid-toned and darker jewel tops. As a person who loves interesting colors and patterns, I just haaaaated spending the money on something that seems so dull. Gray trousers! But they really are a sophisticated match, AND they are good to wear with black or jewel jackets for a polished work look.
