To us, October = all things pumpkin, so what better way to celebrate the season than by incorporating that distinct orange hue into this month’s Color Combo post? A bold shade like pumpkin needs to be balanced with something darker, which is why we chose to pair it with a deep, rich burgundy. The resulting combination is unexpectedly chic and absolutely perfect for autumn!
Need some outfit ideas before you rock this color combo? Simply scroll on down to check out four stylish outfits featuring burgundy and orange:
Outfit #1: Cool Colorblocking
For a casual yet trendy look that works on campus, pair burgundy skinny jeans with a bold pumpkin-colored sweater. Combat boots add a cool vibe, while this printed handbag is roomy enough to stash the day’s essentials. Complete the ensemble by accessorizing with a glam statement necklace.
Outfit #2: Feminine Edge
Create a girly outfit with a bit of edge by pairing a pumpkin-hued skirt with a lacy blouse. Add an on-trend burgundy faux leather jacket as well as some comfy ankle strap flats. Lastly, accessorize with these vintage-look earrings, then paint your nails a pretty off-white shade.
Outfit #3: Menswear-Inspired
We love the idea of layering a orange button-up underneath a burgundy sweater for a cozy yet colorful look. Black trousers are the perfect complement, while heeled oxfords continue the menswear-inspired vibe. Add a trendy touch by accessorizing with mixed metal jewelry, like this bird-adorned watch and spiky earrings.
Outfit #4: Chic & Polished
This final outfit is the ideal blend of comfort and style. Start with a pumpkin orange dress, then add a beige cardigan for warmth. Bring in the burgundy hues with a pair of velvet loafers and a sleek cross-body bag. For the finishing touch, slip on a cute owl-shaped necklace.
