Jewel tones are the must-have colors of the season, and celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Rosie Huntington-Whitely have already started rocking this look.

Bright colors are such a fun way to inject a playful touch to your outfit, and OnSugar blog The Artful Shopper is giving us more reason to try it out with this super cute Alice & Olivia Summer video — check it out!
When I came across this Alice & Olivia video for their Summer 2011 collection I had to share this for my post on summer brights and the colorblocking trend we're seeing that are so hot in fashion right now! What is colorblocking? You've probably heard of the trend that started in early spring that's punctuated by pops of bold color and highlighted by the mixing and matching of separates in all-over hues, in sometimes unexpected ways. Strong prints with geometric shapes in solid hues are big for fall and an all-over wash of striking color is very of-the-moment, for accessories too.
While Jessica Alba and Diane Kruger were battling it out in Gucci at a Paris dinner, Olivia Wilde was standing out on her own. The slim silhouette of her Gucci jumpsuit is killer, but it's the mix of jewel tones — emerald green, blue, purple — that really pops. It would be hard to re-create this entire look, but let's draw inspiration by pairing various jewel tones and then toning it all down with black. Sounds like a brilliant plan!

Newlywed Katherine Heigl went furniture shopping in LA yesterday looking casual yet stylish. I admire that instead of throwing on sweats like so many stars, she chose a teal Marc by Marc Jacobs ruffle blouse, a Jimmy Choo bag, and Tory Burch leopard flats. Her sunnies are a little ill fitting, but I'll get over it because I'm digging the jewel tones in her outfit.
Jewel tones are one of the greatest things to happen in fashion in a long time. The rich burst of color they provide is nothing short of amazing. Take these Banana Republic Silk Clutches ($50 each). They're regal, chic, dazzling, and the list goes on. For that price, I'll take the kayak yellow, brinjal purple, and artisan blue. Maybe you can even gift one to a close friend as well as yourself.
I refuse to accept the fact that the European Spring ready-to-wear shows are over. So, I will continue to believe by sharing some more of my highlights; I'm sure you won't mind. Lanvin concluded Paris and what a grande finale it was. While the rest of the collection was magically inventive, and wonderfully wearable, these jewel-toned party frocks stole my heart. Words can't describe the sensations these fabric creations arouse in me. Ok, now I know you're thinking I've gone fashion cuckoo. Well think what you want, but these Alber Elbaz dresses were the ne plus ultra of Paris. As the designer puts it: "Everything is about ease for the woman...zip it on, zip it off, that's it." You heard the man — that's it!
Canary diamond, ruby, sapphire, and amethyst all showed up on the red carpet tonight, but not just in jewelry form! These ladies accessorized their ice with bold, jewel-toned gowns: Felicity Huffman and Julie Louis-Dreyfus went with a lovely shade of purple, while Portia, Ellen, and America chose hues of blues. Ali Larter looked fantastic in ruby red and Minnie Driver pulled off canary diamond perfectly. Bold, beautiful jewel tones all around!

Drama, luxury and jewel tones are words to describe Katy Rodriguez's Fall collection. But there's a lot more to this designer than that...
Born and raised in San Francisco, Katy Rodriguez initially made her mark in 1996 as co-founder of designer vintage store, Resurrection. With business partner Mark Haddawy, she also collaborated on a collection of their own called 'caitie et marc.'
Known for her abilities to cultivate the best vintage from around the world, Rodriguez has also been recognized by Vogue on its annual Best Dressed List. In 2005, Rodriguez struck out on her own, debuting her eponymous collection. Chosen as one of Gen Art’s “Fresh Faces,” Rodriguez showed her Spring 2007 collection at the Gen Art Show in October of 2006. She went on to show her Fall 2007 collection at the Gramercy Park Hotel at an intimate gathering of celebrity clients and editors.
Back to the drama, luxury and jewel tones. Her entire Fall collection can be found here and prices begin at $750.
