Since it’s my favorite holiday, I simply couldn’t pass up the chance to make this month’s Color Combo post Halloween-themed. Not only are black and orange the official colors of October 31st, but the pairing of a classic neutral with a bold hue creates a chic look that packs a punch.

Need some outfit ideas before you rock this spooky combo? Scroll on down to check out four stylish orange and black outfits that can be worn on Halloween or any other day of the year:

Outfit #1: Comfy & Laid-Back

For this first outfit, let’s start with the basics: pair an orange knitted sweater with black printed jeans for a comfortable and stylish color-blocked look. Simple black ballet flats continue the casual vibe, while a gold spiked necklace adds some edge. Grab a roomy printed messenger bag and you’ll have a low-key outfit that you can rock on campus.

Outfit #2: Dressy & On-Trend

Now we’re going to flip the colors in the last look by pairing a classic black button-up with a light orange A-line skirt. Heeled oxfords give this look a fashion-forward touch, while a tapestry bag adds pattern and texture. Next, add some statement jewelry like these stacked rings and geometric earrings. Slip a sweet and simple headband into your hair for an on-trend and feminine fall outfit.

If you just want to incorporate a small pop of orange into your look, this outfit is for you! Start by pairing a cream-colored maxi skirt with a striped long-sleeved tee for a casual, yet glam look. Next, incorporate a knitted orange infinity scarf and some unique cap-toe flats. Add a dressy vibe by accessorizing with sparkly cluster earrings and a knotted clutch. Last but not least, add several mixed metal bangles, which help to tie together all the colors found throughout the ensemble.
