Wearing Rust For Fall

How do you feel about wearing deep oranges like rust & burnt orange? They can be a little intimidating to wear, especially if you love sticking to your neutrals like me. They can be very flattering for Fall, just like olive and mustard.

I honestly was never really a fan of them until about 2 years ago. I always wanted to wear them before then, but I felt like those shades flushed me out as a fair-skinned blonde. I’ve always worn the occasional orange during Summer or supporting my Auburn Tigers, but nothing above that. I eventually played around with the richer side of orange and realized it’s all about choosing the right color palette to pair with them for a flattering look.

If you’re new to these intense hues, I encourage you to incorporate them into your wardrobe. Here are some complementary colors that you probably already have to try with them:

    • White, cream
    • Black
    • Greens like olive, hunter green, & sage
    • Blues like navy, light & dusty blue, & turquoise
    • Gold
    • Light browns like sand & khaki

Here are some tips that may be useful when playing around with these rich orange colors.

    • Pair with colors that already compliment your skin tone.
    • These shades are great colors to wear for a Fall photo session. They photograph well in natural light.
    • Having a fresh spray tan or glow to your skin will help bring out your tan’s warmth when wearing these colors.

I hope you found these suggestions and tips helpful. Thank you for reading, glad you stopped by.
