I love the tone-on-tone look of fall. How can I wear it in an interesting way?

Tone-on-tone dressing is a simple way to work the latest color trends into your wardrobe. Not only is green huge this season, but because of the variety found in this hue, green can make for some incredibly striking monochromatic looks. The tints and shades run the entire spectrum of blue and yellow. Taking advantage of this wide range not only adds depth, but helps you avoid the Jolly Green Giant effect. Bright kelly green and chartreuse are great for one element of your look, but they need to be tempered by forest, mint or deep emerald. Khaki greens send a relaxed weekend vibe, especially when combined with greens that veer toward olive and grey. White, black and grey can be useful accents too. Most importantly, remember to keep a face-flattering green up top. Intense lime or neon greens can be tough for a lot of women, but are perfect for a skinny belt or a clutch.
