This season, make a smooth transition into fall by adding the always classic hue of smoke pearl to your wardrobe. Smoke pearl is a perfectly neutral color that works well on most skin tones and it’s a great palette to play off of. But how can you wear smoke pearl now that we are venturing into fall? We offer five quick tips in making the stunning color work for you.
GO FOR THE GOLD
Smoke pearl exudes sophistication. Allow the regal look to take center stage with accessories that accentuate that mood. Gold is a great choice. Opt for striking gold statement necklace or sculptural gold earrings.
LET IT SHINE
If the neutral color seems too safe, find a dress that incorporates hints of metallic shine. Corded embroidery features brilliant threading that will catch the light.
Liven up the color with dramatic makeup. Think wine, burgundy or brown for the lips and eyes. Nails in dark colors will also add to the arresting style. You will give off a seductive Veronica Lake vibe.
A SHOE IN
Trade in the high-heeled gladiator sandals for more structured heels. Warm-toned metallic like gold or rose will add the right amount of contrast. Towering black booties will also give the look an edge.
THE COMPLETE LOOK
Toughen up a smoke pearl dress with a leather motorcycle jacket or continue with the overall sophisticated mood with a dramatic cape.
