This next dress from Erin Fetherston’s collection is a Jasper color. I love how shimmery the lace looks. It is an empire waist dress with sheer long sleeves.
Karen Walker combined Carnelian and Lapis Lazuli jewel tones in this collared mini-dress with flare sleeves. The gray tights is an unusual combination for these colors.
She also managed to combine Lapis Lazuli, Amethyst and Ruby in this next number. The shoes even match! I like this one better than the first.
Although I’m not a fan of large floral prints, if you have the figure to pull off these next examples, more power to you! I love Reyes’ take on this fall floral trend. He combines the jewel tones of Sugilite and Tiger’s Eye in bold, floral prints with a bit of white as the backdrop.
Nanette Lepore had the same brilliant idea with the bold floral print but instead combined jewel tones Ruby, Carnelian, and Chrysocolla.
One other designer had this idea of using large, floral print in jewel tones. Cynthia Steffe had two dresses in different colors. The example I have here uses the Lapis Lazuli jewel tone:
This next dress really does hint at the shades of fall. It is from the DKNY fall 2008 collection and features the jewel tones Carnelian, Tiger’s-eye, and Amethyst:
These next two Giambattista Valli dresses look more Valentine-ready than fall-ready. Still, they are beautiful and feature jewel tones Ruby and Jasper:
Heidi Klum walking for the Heart Truth show also featured these same jewel tones in her dress but also added Tourmaline to the mix:
So far I’ve only shown dresses. This next Tracy Reese outfit features a jewel tone floral top using the colors of Malachite and Jasper. It’s paired with a gray pencil skirt and Turquoise jewelry.
Thakoon had a couple jewel tone dresses this fall as well. In this first one he used Turquoise and Pyrite. Both dressses feature a white background.
In the next dress he used Sugilite and Carnelian. I’m not a fan of the way the top of this dress looks. It makes the model look a bit boxy.
Derek Lam’s collection featured this floor length floral dress using Lapis Lazuli and Obsidian jewel tones. The shiny fabric looks elegant.
Cynthia Steffe also combined these jewel tones but used a matte fabric instead of a shiny fabric. She also opted for a more muddied art-inspired floral look in finer print.
Another designer who showcased the muddied jewel tones is Badgle-Mischka incorporating Sugilite, Pyrite and Tiger’s-eye. This one might be my favorite. I love how the Pyrite and Tiger’s-eye colors look like falling leaves. Perfect for autumn!
Lastly, I wanted to showcase a celebrity donning this fall look! Also wearing a strapless dress, Toni Braxton showcases Carnelian, Turquoise and Ruby:
