Jewel Tones to Solve Your Workplace Woes

November 08, 2019 | Filed in: Your Closet

We’re now officially in the homestretch of 2019, when the holidays are no longer creeping up but rather rushing towards us, and the prospect of a new year looms on the horizon. During these cold, short, and sometimes frantic days, it can be hard to find wardrobe inspiration (other than big, comfy sweaters)—but it’s also such a necessity, because who doesn’t want to end the year on a high note? 

That’s why we’ve decided to Set the Tone, pulling together our most dazzling jewel tones to help inspire and empower you all the way to 2020. Think of these pieces and colors like a mood ring for your work woes—a way for you to simplify getting dressed in the morning by knowing exactly how you’re going to tackle the day. 

Below, a break down of each color and the tone we think it inspires. 


For making tough calls (“cappuccino, or cold brew!?!”).


For speaking truth to power. (Mansplainers, you’ve been warned.)


For summoning creative inspiration—so you can finally win the New Yorker caption contest.


For presenting with panache. Throwback to debate team victories.


For warding off negative office vibes. (Next step: Commandeer office thermostat.)


For owning your accomplishments—wield your Team MVP win with pride!


For stepping up and taking charge—of everything from presentations to party playlists.

So, which tone will help you tackle your day?
