Many of my clients wear black and shades of orange, but don’t fancy combining the colours in one outfit because of the association with Halloween. They feel like they’re wearing a costume and can’t take the combination seriously.
If that’s the case for you, here are three tips to take the Halloween out of an orange and black outfit:
- Add a shade of white to the mix with white footwear, bag, jacket, jeans, belt or top
- Add a shade of blue to the outfit with a pair of jeans, patterned scarf, jewellery, bag and shoes
- Add animal print like leopard or cheetah with footwear, bag, topper or scarf.
I didn’t grow up with Halloween, and don’t have the same association with black and orange outfits. I love to wear orange, and enjoy black in small doses. I don’t wear them together because I prefer orange matched with shades of blue. I also like to add white to the mix to crisp things up.
Over to you. Do you wear orange with black, or does the combination have too much of a Halloween association? And Happy Halloween!
