Jewel tones are rich colours that resemble gem stones like dark ruby reds, sapphire blues, amethyst purples and emerald greens and teals. Sour brights are saturated colours that are mixed with lots of yellow, like citron, all shades of lime green, tomato red, bright oranges and corals, neon pink and bright turquoise.

I only have two jewel toned items in my wardrobe because I’m a sour brights gal all the way. They are my favourite colours, and they make me happy when I wear them. I do not gravitate towards jewel tones at all, but do love them on others. 

Over to you. Are you on Team Jewel Tones or Team Sour Brights? Based on the colour preferences of my clientele, I suspect that jewel tones will win this poll with the greatest of ease. No batting for both teams, but you can sit this one out on the bench if you can’t pick a side or if neither colour spectrum is appealing.
