Get Rich Quick: Jewel Tones for Fall

Any conversation about the elements of fall style will likely focus on a few key things: layering, fabrics, and textures. Certainly some of my favorite fall style components, but let’s talk about something usually reserved for discussions about foliage: color. And, more specifically, jewel tones. There’s nothing sharper in the fall than the addition of some rich jewel tones. Here’s one way to incorporate them into your look.

Accent a classic menswear color palate of blues and browns with rich colors like burgundy and deep blues and greens. The right accessories are key and you can never go wrong with a scarf, hat, and tie – even for a sharp casual look.

Don’t be afraid to combine fabrics from opposite ends of the spectrum. A mix of wools and silks can add a richness, depth, and interest to any fall ensemble.

    This look is well put together. its such a pity i really cannot layer that much here even though its almost hamarttan season. The accessories work together to enrich the vibe of the outfit.

    Cheers !

    I’m so loving the styling on this look! I wish you lived in San Francisco, I would love to have you as a guest speaker for my class. I teach fashion styling and visual merchandising at City College of SF, and more and more boys are joining my classes. This semester I have seven young men, which is actually quite a lot, considering I usually have two in a class of 59 girls!

    You would be such an inspiration to the men as well as ladies on dressing well. I’m forever telling my boys to pull up their pants!!!

      If I’m ever out in SF, let’s try to hook that up.

  • Sourav

    Hello Brian,

    I’ve been following you on Google+ for quite some time now and really learn a lot from your posts.

    That’s a very nice look. Specially the blazer and jeans. Where can I get this exact same blazer? I checked the Uniqlo online store, but could not find this one.


    • Brian Sacawa

      Hi, Sourav. Great to know we’ve got some fans on G+. This blazer was from last year’s collection and it doesn’t appear that they have a similar color this year.

    I LOVE those Daltons. How do you care for them? Do you use any polish or cremes?

    • Brian Sacawa

      James, I probably don’t care for them as well as I should, considering how often I wear them. I get them shined occasionally, but other than that I don’t do much else.
