Ooh, a color post. I always get super excited for these and especially in the fall. Color is my jam and fall is my jam, and I could go on and on about both. I could look at color combos all day long and be quite happy. But, sometimes color can be a little overwhelming to translate into actual looks when you have a closet full of neutrals, so I wanted to pull together a few inspiration outfits to help with that.
Easily combine some of these gorgeous shades by starting with a neutral or two, and adding in a bright pop. If you’re going to go with more than one bright color, which can be trickier to do, stick to only two and rely on black or gray or nude shoes, bag and accessories, as a general rule. But we all know rules are made to be broken, too…so if color-mixing stresses you out, this might be a helpful plan!
My favorite places to find fabulous, spot-on colorful pieces (surprise, I’m picky) are Boden, Everlane, & Other Stories, Topshop & Banana Republic. I have noticed that, of course, even ready-to-wear brands pay attention to color trends and offer at least a few shades from the list each year. It seems UK brands really prioritize this and get just the right shades in their fabrics.
Favorite Fall Color Combos & Outfit Inspiration
Goldenrod, Blue & Ivory
Well, this one was unintentional, but one of my latest outfits just happened to include three of the fall shades! Thanks, Everlane. They offer rich yet often washed or over-dyed versions of the bold colors which are definitely a bit easier to wear for everyday.
Navy, Blue & Rust
This combo is just gorgeous and easily translatable to work. If you have a blue top and navy pants, pull in a great orange bag or shoe or sweater, or go full-in and grab one of the amazing coats I’ve linked! It’ll be a rad statement piece all winter and fall, and coordinates with more in your closet than you might realize. It’s surprisingly good with gray.
Red, Burgundy & Ivory
This combo is KILLER. Red and burgundy are always unexpected but always WOW. I’d pull in an ivory bag or even a leather jacket to this combo, but you don’t necessarily need it. This combo also works for the holidays without screaming ‘holidays.’ And a gorgeous ivory wool coat on top would be amazing.
