As much as we love a chic, all-black outfit, there's something SO fun about experimenting with color, too. Especially when you combine two hues that seem like they really shouldn't work together ... but actually do! 

Scroll down to check out the three unexpected color combos we're loving right now. Whether you're a fan of bold brights or something more subdued, we think you'll find the perfect pairing. 

1. Rust + Camel

One of my favorite colors to wear lately has been a rich, rusty red. It's bold but not garish, and has a sort-of vintage vibe that pairs particularity well with a sophisticated neutral, like camel.

This outfit plays up that old school feel with a layered A-line skirt and classic camel coat, topped with an ivory cropped sweater. Finish the look with beaded tassel earrings and metallic oxfords, which add a modern, trend-forward edge.

2. Teal + Plum

The old adage is true: opposites do attract. That's why we're drawn to the idea of combining jewel-toned teal and deep plum into one colorful look.

When pairing two bold colors, simplicity is key, so keep it casual with a cozy knit and skinny ponte pant combo. A soft taupe ankle boot keeps the look grounded, while a trio of delicate rings adds a hint of shine. 

3. Mustard Yellow + Olive Green

Can we vow to make 2018 the year of wearing more yellow? It's so underrated! If you're wary of rocking this color, we suggest trying a darker, muted mustard yellow, paired with olive green. It's a trendy look that's going to turn so many heads.

For a too-cool-for-school ensemble, layer your go-to army jacket over a cozy, mustard-hued sweater dress. Grab over-the-knee boots (and your fave tights!) to take it to the next level. Keep the accessories sleek yet attention-grabbing. We opted for tortoise circle sunnies and geometric drop earrings.

Your turn!
