When it comes to fashionable colors, one of our favorite vintage colors is green.  So when we learned last week that Pantone had announced that the must-have color for 2013 was emerald green we were delighted.  This color is a great statement color that can easily be blended into your wardrobe in a variety of different clothing options.

It is that time of year where jackets are imperative and finding a fashionable jacket in emerald green is no problem at Vintage Fringe.  One of our favorite designers, new to Vintage Fringe is Tulle which does such a great job of creating vintage style fashions and this season they utilized a lot of emerald green colors in their designs.  Whether your favorite is the Double Breasted Cocoon Coat in Deep Emerald which features a 3/4 length and cute gathered sleeves and our favorite an adorable bow in back adding to the adorable vintage style elements.  If you need something with a little more of a trench style, then consider the Tie Waist Coat with Epaulettes also in an Emerald Green shade that features a more fitted style.  The tie waist is secured in back with wide sewn in belt loops so it won’t move around while you are wearing it and it gives you flexibility to wear it open or unbuttoned without worrying about the loose tie belt.  The Epaulettes are just the tip of the iceberg so to speak with the details on this jacket like the pockets at the top of the jacket and on the sides at the bottom and the matching belted detail around the cuffs on the jacket.  We have no shortage of green jackets including the previously mentioned Tie Waist Coat with Ruffles and the classic Single Breasted Coat which comes in both Green and Black.

Jewel Tone Tops

This season bright, vivid colors are a great way to add vibrant bold pieces into your wardrobe.  Finding colors that fit with jewel tones as an example is a great way to add bold colors to your closet.  These colors are making a resurgence and summer is a great time to incorporate bright colors in a variety of different styles.

The Daree top by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer in jungle an emerald green color is an example of the bright colors that are so popular.  Green shades have made a comeback and can be found in so many shades.  The style of this Daree top makes it the perfect top for belting.  With a wide belt that you wear just below a natural empire waist level, this top looks great with that belted accent and is a great way to incorporate basic colors as contrast against the vibrant emerald green tone.

Of course Sapphire is a great jewel tone to find clothing to include in your closet.  Sapphires can come in many shades, but my personal favorites are the deep navy hues.  As an example of a jewel tone top to match Sapphire colors is the Berta dress / tunic top by Velvet.  This dress features a deep navy color and exudes the same class and sophistication as a beautiful sapphire stone.  This tunic top is a great summer piece and I truly love the deep navy tone.  It is not a royal blue, it is a true deep navy.  I love the loose belted tie around the waist for added style on this top along with the deep v neckline.  The wide sleeves also feature subtle pleats as accents adorning the sleeves.  This top features raw edges on the hems and sleeves for added detail.

If you are looking for a ruby jewel tone, consider the Mae Ruffle Scoop Neck tank by Velvet.  This tank features a deep scoop neckline adorned by a ruffle with a drawstring tie around the neck all in a Cayenne coral red color.  A great bright color and coral hues are so popular this summer, this stylish tank top is extremely versatile with the ability to dress it up under a blazer at the office or wearing it as a standalone top with capris, a skirt or whatever.  This is a statement piece particularly with such bold color.  This tank is part of Velvet’s Whisper collection which is a thin, lightweight jersey cotton.

As you can see jewel tone tops are a great way to incorporate both bold colors and great style pieces into your wardrobe.  Jewel tones can clearly come in many other shades and hues, but these are a few great examples of how easy it is to find stylish pieces in such vibrant colors.  Literally, you can find every jewel tone in modern fashions and such colors do a lot to really accent your closet with bright statement pieces that can complement whatever colors work best with your skin tone.
