August 13th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile Trend Alert: Unexpected Color Combinations

The best part about fashion and personal style is experimenting. Experimenting with color, patterns, fabrics, and silhouettes are what creativity in fashion is all about and how we can continue to push the envelope and develop new ideas. It took me a long time to be comfortable with pairing unexpected or clashing colors together, even at the same time loving bold looks on Instagram, but once I found a few new combinations that refreshed my wardrobe, I was hooked! Take a look at 4 unexpected colors trends and how to style them for the fall season.

Green & Purple

The trick to pairing these two seemingly opposite colors is to pair their pastel counterparts together.

Black & Brown

The two neutrals were formally considered controversial to pair but it has come to be accepted that the two complement each other in a sophisticated way.

Red & Orange

These two bold colors would typically butt heads, but wearing a muted brick with a burnt orange creates the fall color palette you’ve been searching for.

Brown & Yellow

Neutrals and vibrant colors are a match made in Heaven. Yellow brightens up the brown tone without being too overpowering.
