Trend Watch Wednesday: Be a Gem

Happy Day-Before-Thanksgiving ya'll!

As you probably know, jewel tones are definitely hot this season! I mean, just take a look around you in any department store or boutique and you'll see what I'm talking about.

From fashion to home decor, shades of plum, teal, navy and deep, ruby red are filling the shelves.

Below, you'll find some of my favorite jewel-toned pieces:

Trousers by Jeni Kayne, top by Nanette Lepore

Both of these lovely wine-colored dresses are from Alice & Olivia. Love them!

Dress from Mason by Michelle Mason

Navy dress comes courtesy of Marc Jacobs and the teal dress is the genius of Shoshanna.

Metal heeled stillettos by Barbara Bui, stacked heel in plum by Pelle Moda

Hobo-inspired bag by Marc Jacobs

Couch and throw pillows by Urban Outfitters
Candle holders and mini table tree from Target.com

Do you have a passion for purple? A crush on crimson? What jewel-toned pieces have you picked up this season?
