Orange is a color I don’t see on many women (probably have Elle Woods to blame), but can be fairly easy to pair. Just stick with shades that are less stark (like Halloween orange + black) and color combinations that appear naturally. Safe pairings include hunter green, brown / neutrals, or a soft ivory. Referencing my trusty color wheel, neighboring colors like red or yellow can create bold yet harmonious combinations that are still reminiscent of nature, like turning leaves.
Over the years, I’ve also loved wearing this jacket with prints, whether it’s basic black & white, a retro-inspired shift, or an earthy houndstooth skirt.
Autumn at Work: Pumpkin swing jacket + hunter green lace
As stores are currently saturated with burgundy, I’ve been enjoying other autumn color favorites in my existing wardrobe. This time of the year, I love wearing rustic orange –or pumpkin- almost as much as others love their pumpkin spice lattes. The color reminds me of fall foliage at its peak…which is sadly very short-lived.
Apologies for the progressively grainier and darker photos – as the days are getting shorter, good lighting before or after work is hard to come by!
Readers – Have you been embracing orange for fall? If so, how do you style it?
