Add a jewel tone or two

image
It's about that time of year where I fall into wearing black everyday. Black is just one of those colors that can't go too wrong. While I do love black all by itself, I also love the idea of adding a jewel tone color such as a bright blue, emerald green, or raspberry pink (like in the picture above). The color seems to stand out more than usual and gives just the right dose of color to a look. I even think wearing a couple of different jewel tones together would look great with black.
 
Here are a few jewel tone items to mix into your wardrobe:
cobalt: pants / scarf / pumps   emerald: sandals / skirt / bag    fuchsia: belt / sweater / nail polish
What do you think, how do you keep black from becoming boring?
