As you all know, I love orange and think it goes with everything (which it totally does) but even I’m hesitant to pair it with black for fear of looking Halloween-y. Today, however, paired black with orange and did so fearlessly because I also tempered the look with blue:
I got the idea for this color combination from Jill at Good Life for Less. And I was thrilled because it gives me even more ways to wear the orange in my wardrobe. For today, I paired a black jersey dress (v. old) with my orange beaded necklace (street fair vendor) and a bright blue cardigan (v. old). I added cognac accessories in the way of a braided belt (thrifted) and espadrille wedges (Corso Como via Piperlime).
And I loved it. I think the blue cardigan really does make all the difference in the world to this outfit. But, the fact that the necklace is more of a red-orange instead of a bright orange also helps keep the look out of Halloween territory.
Today’s Takeaway? You can pair orange with black; just keep the orange muted and add some blue.
What do you think, folks? Do you think you might give this color combo a try?
