Fashionable color combinations change every season. Summer color combinations tend to be light and airy whereas fall/winter colors gravitate towards darker, moodier hues. When it comes to forecasting fashion color combinations, you only need to look to the designer runways for inspiration. The following are just some fashionable color combinations spotted during the Fall 2012 Ready-To-Wear shows.
1 Pink + Gold
Many of the most fashionable color combinations for fall will involve traditional fall tones accentuated by pops of colour. Rich, golden yellow hues are often associated with fall dressing but this season try a fresh approach by teaming them with a bright pink shade. This colour combination was featured at Diane Von Furstenberg and is bound to be a hit this fall.
2 Maroon + Orange
All shades of orange were on-trend for spring/summer and this is set to follow through into fall. Make this color fall appropriate by pairing your bright orange shades with a moody maroon or wine colour, as seen on the Acne runway, for a truly fashionable look.
3 Black + White
Black and white is a classic pairing, and this upcoming fall season is set to be chock full of this fashionable color combination. Designers such as 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang, and Proenza Schouler all featured black and white outfits in their fall collections. Make this look work by sticking to minimalist Mod and tuxedo inspired looks.
4 Blue + Grey
If you must wear grey shades this fall, bring them to life with a little bit of color. Grey and blue is a color combination that can easily be adapted to suit many wardrobes. Designers such as Balenciaga and Matthew Williamson made this color combination work by teaming cool greys with bright cobalt blues.
5 Navy + Red
Navy and red is a classic color combination that is perfect for working a polished, preppy look this fall. Designers such as Carven and Jil Sander featured doses of navy accentuated by red hues. Team a chunky navy sweater with a red skirt pants and Mary Jane shoes for a feminine and classic fall look, or be a bit more daring by wearing a bright red coat over a navy dress.
6 Cream + Pink
Fall colors are traditionally darker and moodier. However, some designers such as Jil Sander and Chloé chose to stick to a lighter colour palette for their Fall 2012 collections. This is great for those wanting to get a bit more wear from their spring/summer wardrobes. Take inspiration from the runways of Chloé and team cream and pink together.
7 Purple + Black
Rich purple hues are a great option for fall/winter dressing. The combination of purple and black was a popular choice on the runways of Erdem, Emporio Armani, and Vanessa Bruno. This color pairing combines basic black with an edgy hit of colour.
These are just some of the stand out fashionable color combinations, straight from the designer runways. Take the lead of the designers and use these as inspiration for your new season looks. Which fashionable color combination will you be rocking this fall?
