FALL 2017
By Susannah Bradley for Modern Muse

If you're of the opinion that the color orange is best left to preschoolers and popsicles, it's time to reconsider. We've got the breakdown on how to wear this surprisingly versatile shade with fall-inspired looks that will have you pushing your basic-black standards to the back of your closet.

Get in Touch with Your Bohemian Side

There's something undeniably boho about orange, so why not embrace the hippie vibe with straight-out-of-the-seventies details such as flowy fabrics and ruffles? This Madewell top features feminine details in an earthy tone that pairs well with denim.

Pair with Jeans

Orange and blue are complementary colors, which means that they're opposites on the color wheel. So when you wear them together, the effect is striking. Choose a solid top like this button-down from Chico's, and pair it with dark denim in a skinny silhouette for maximum impact.

Pick Prints

Head-to-toe orange might be hard to pull off, but you can soften the visual impact by choosing a pretty print that incorporates the punchy hue. Choose one with a neutral background color, like this piece from Aritzia, to keep it sophisticated.

Punch Up Your Footwear and Accessories

Not ready to go all-in on orange? Dip your toe into the trend with a bright pair of boots, a bracelet or a handbag instead. A little bit of this bright shade goes a long way, so splash out with bold accessories, like these Hunter rain boots from Nordstrom.
