13 Surprising Color Combinations to Wear in Fall
Mustard goes with a lot more than you think
Why is it that every year, as soon as the weather starts to cool down, we default to wearing the same tired black coats and gray layers? Here, 13 color combos to try that will infuse a bit of life into your winter wardrobe.
Rust and Olive
Thank you, Olivia, for showing us that olive green and rustic red make for the perfect autumnal palette.
Pink, Green and Black
Pink and green as a stand-alone combo can read a little too preppy. Pink, green and black, however, looks downright polished.
Navy and Coral
Nervous about wearing such a bright shade? Try pairing it with navy, which provides a crisp contrast while toning down the overall look.
Forest Green and Orange
You can get a similar effect with a deep shade of green, too.
Burgundy and Black
Black and white is classic (and to be honest, a little boring if you’re wearing it day in, day out). Add some deep red into the mix to spice things up occasionally.
Blush, Gray and Blue
Who says pastels are only meant for spring? Pair your paler pinks with darker grays and blues to keep things seasonal.
Pink and Red
Try a twist on the monochromatic trend by sticking to varying shades of the same color family. Better yet, switch up the textures, too.
Yellow and Gray
Gray keeps it businesslike. Bright canary makes it, dare we say, fun.
Mustard and Brown
Mustard yellow paired with an earthy terra-cotta gives off a relaxed ’70s vibe that’s perfect for strolling around on the weekend.
Mustard, Black and Navy
If the brown is too much for you, hit up your trusty black and navy.
Mustard, Black and Denim
Break up any semblance to a bumblebee with some strategically placed jeans.
Tan and Orange
The beginner’s guide to wearing more color: Start with a tan base and add a bright accessory.
Navy, Tan and Olive
Consider this your new trifecta of neutrals. Trust: Each of them is just as wearable as black or white. Wear them alone. Wear them together. (Or perhaps add a fourth color, like an unexpected pop of red.)
