Earth tones work wonders. I feel it every time I wear these beautiful colors together. The flow and softness of earth tones exude a tranquil, yet powerful presence. Being very sophisticated colors from the color wheel, they definitely make a statement without offending anyone. Plus, what else goes better with layered pearls and bold gold accessories?

Earth tone is a color scheme that gives off a comfortable and soothing feeling as it draws from a color palette of browns, greys, greens, and some reds. The colors are muted, but blend beautifully with all other colors, especially other colors from the earth tone color palette. I have chosen more smooth beige items that make it easier to blend to your liking.

The first item is a handbag from Tory Burch. This “Brewster” clutch features a gold chain that can be removed. The colors are a classic earth tone combination, with khaki and camel and gold-studded accents, which makes the bag more luxurious. This bag is definitely something that will go with any outfit and soften a dramatic look with the earth tone hues. This bag is very well made, and its front flap conceals a magnetic closure, making it convenient to open and close. The leather gives it a higher priced look without actually draining your wallet.

Steve Madden "Cooperr" Peep Toe

Speaking of class, I found a high end look for a steal and that’s something I’m always looking out for. This Milly Tweed Pencil Skirt looks like a million bucks. Tweed is always been the material that represents class-- St. John and Moschino are big supporters tweed. This particular tweed pencil skirt is a simple golden color that is sophisticated and polished. Paired with a silky, flowy blouse it will look phenomenal. This skirt will be wonderful for a professional office environment.

So now that we have a clutch, and skirt covered, lets proceed to my best friends: shoes. I found some great versatile shoes by Steve Madden. These “Cooperr” peep toes have a classic silhouette which is nice because they can be worn year after year. The color and the style give it a lasting look in fashion. The fun thing is that this shoe is a tan patent leather with an exotic, eye-catching look. The scaly finish on the shoe is more modern and soft looking. You can’t go wrong with this purchase, and with a 4.25 inch heel, how could you go unnoticed?
