Alert: Summer Trend : Jewel Tone dress and Statement Sleeves!
Hello! Are you aware of this summer trend? With all of the focus on bleached blues and white whites, don’t forget to add vivid and saturated colors to your summer wardrobe. Think emerald-green, bold coral, cobalt blue, and deep purple. Below I wear a silk dress that incorporates the sleeve detail of the summer, and a rich jewel tone.
Certainly I had fun with this dress. I received admiring comments from passersby too. You will notice that I matched my nail color and sunnies, for a full on purple vibe!
I love long sleeves in summer as the AC gets very cold in most restaurants and shopping venues. Also, as I am spending half of my time near the beach and it is much cooler there. The open neckline keeps me cool, and the long statement sleeves keep me warm. This combination is just right!
TIP: When I wear this dress out, I put rubber bands at the sleeve, near the elbow, and poof the fabric over so they are invisible. That saves me the expensive of altering this dress and makes it so that my daughter or friends can barrow it, too !
The summer flowers are out and I love to be synchronized with their vibrance. The jewel tone dress is everywhere! Did you happen to see the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle wearing her jewel tone dress in rich canary diamond yellow? Fabulous!
Restaurants that I dined in this week were festooned with flowers. This week is quiet in New York!
I wore the dress with silver caged sandals by Enzo Angiolini . A metallic sandal seemed in keeping with this bright dress and is somewhat of a neutral. Below the accessories I wore. You might remember this Badgley Mischka bag.

Elle you look gorgeous in this wonderful dress! I love it! What a wonderful colour!
Thank you so much dearest Tina!
It is a very beautiful dress indeed. I would do the same with the sleeves (rubber band).
Thank you most sincerely! I thought you would know of this trick !
This is such an incredible color on you Elle!! The color, the sleeves…they all make for such a fabulous statement!!
I have done that with the rubber bands before, but I’m also spoiled with my mom doing so many of my alterations (although I can usually shorten sleeves—these would be tricky though)
You are very resourceful so I’m not surprised that you know this trick. You are very lucky to have a mother who sews ! Happy new week !
Wow, that is one amazing outfit, Elle! You look stunning in this rich purple! Of course, yes, you had me at “jewel tone” – you know I love a bright, saturated colour, and how lovely to see a bold statement done in a single “no thinking” outfit! Your accessories are always my favourite – just perfect, and never too many. I will have to shop my closet for this look, for sure!
That is good to hear Sheila. Sometimes I worry that I wear too many accessories. I know of your love for saturated colors and that is something that I admire about you.
Oh that’s such a beautiful dress! I love purple of course so I’m really liking the matching with the lasses and nail polish! 🙂 Good tip about the rubber bands on the sleeves too! 🙂
Hope that you’re having a wonderful weekend 🙂

Thanks so much MIca,
That is very kind. I’m glad you appreciated that tip. I hope you and your family are well.
What a good tip, the rubber bands! You look spectaculair Elle!
Thanks, sometimes we learn as we go! Enjoy this beautiful day!
Clever trick with the rubber bands… a friend of mine was wearing a top with large bell sleeves and accidentally knocked over an expensive vase that got caught up in her sleeve.
Oh no !!! Just goes to show you that everything can be fixed with a rubber band, duct tape, or good wine ! Lol.
Loved your purple lavender jewel toned dress also the flare of sleeves is very pretty…
Thanks so much! I was happy to find this ! It would look beautiful on you!
I love this dress – you look so gorgeous! Wonderful post Hun 🙂

Thanks Grace, so kind!
I love jewel tones and this looks gorgeous on you.
I think everyone looks good in bold saturated colour.
The elastic trick is great!
I am sure that you know of this trick. I agree everyone does look good in color. Plus I think deep colors energize one’s mood!
This color is stunning on you and I adore those sleeves! Wonderful look!
Thanks so much Kathrine! I so appreciate that!
YOU are a sparkly jewel!
And I love that gorgeous copper colored dress you shared, sumptuous!
How sweet you are ! I also love that dress! If I were taller ..
Ahh, if we were all taller 🙂
I’m all for jewel tones, and your deep purple dress suits you perfectly. Those sleeve are fantastic, and I’m taking on board your rubber band trick. I gave away an otherwise perfectly wearable blouse because of it’s massive sleeves. If only I’d known … xxx
Oh no! You will know for next time, but you did a good deed and the kindness will surely come back to you!
This is a superb and so elegant dress! The sandals are simply gorgeous! Happy Sunday xx

What an incredible hue! It’s really stunning!
Thank you very much and welcome to my blog. I really appreciate that you visited today.
Elle, a stunning color on you! I love the style, the sleeves being dramatic and how you styled it. The rich color is so flattering with your skin tone! Great sunnies and gorgeous shoes as well! You know I love color, and I have a very similar rust dress in a silky fabric that you have shown here. I am going o have to style it soon! Great selection.
Have a wonderful week!
