Get the Look: 5 Color Combinations to Try This Fall

As stated by Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, “Just as the leaves change in autumn, the consumer will enjoy the ability to change their ‘look’ and try a new approach to their wardrobe for brisk days ahead.” Keeping that in mind, as the colder months set in, why not get experimental with your color combinations? When used to create a mood and set a tone, colors can change your outlook. Here are five color combinations we suggest trying this season:

Fall 2013 Color Combinations: Purple + Green

Mix Pantone’s color of the year, emerald, with one of the season’s hottest colors, for a luxurious and elegant palette. Shades of violet add mystery and richness to any look. An alluring cutout neckline dress by Diane von Furstenberg paired with velvety suede pumps by Giuseppe Zanotti create a powerful color combination.

Fall 2013 Color Combinations: Grey + Cognac

Two of fall’s most prominent colors, everyone tends to gravitate towards greys and browns with the change of the season – and yes, you can wear them together. Both neutral colors provide a sophisticated alternative to black basics. A cashmere sweater dress by 360 SWEATER brings a luxe feel to cognac leather riding boots by Sam Edelman.

Fall 2013 Color Combinations: Blue + Camel

Popularly seen in boots, handbags and jackets, camel will never go out of style. For a relaxed fall look, we suggest pairing it with a cerulean or Pantone’s Mykonos blue. Exposed zippers on this Cut25 by Yigal Azrouel sweater bring a cool element to sleek Current/Elliott skinny pants in buttery leather.

Fall 2013 Color Combinations: Black + White

A classic color combination, you can’t go wrong with black and white. Sophisticated enough for a day at the office, it can be jazzed up with accessories for a night out. We love the silhouette of this slouchy silk jumpsuit by Tucker for a special occasion. Top it with a white fencing blazer by Pencey Standard and you’re ready to hit the town.

Fall 2013 Color Combinations: Oxblood + Nude

For something a bit more ladylike, try mixing nudes with a rich oxblood. Paired against a cream or blush hue, an oxblood piece will not only stand out, but will add some sensuality to your ensemble. A Catherine Malandrino classic trench coat is the perfect topper for a blouson silk dress by Rory Beca.
