If you’re not used to wearing bold colors before, it’s best to start with your accessories. Like Doina, spice up your muted fall outfits of an all black jumpsuit with a red bag, or a camel sweater and black miniskirt with red patent over the knee boots. Your fabric may sometimes play an important role in making your bold colors look elegant or tacky. Generally, suede and patent leather look more elegant oven cotton and knits when it comes to bright hues.

Team your bold colored piece with a neutral ensemble.

If you wish to add some modern vibe to your classic ensembles, team them with bold colored pieces. Like Doina, make your red dress more daring with a black structured coat and loafers that look edgy and fall-inspired. If you’re planning to go to a night party, think of a metallic purple skirt that looks feminine and cozy when teamed with a fitted sweater perfect for the fall weather. Feel free to explore bold hues like yellow, orange, green, hot pink and such that will create higher contrast with dark neutrals and lower contrast with lighter neutrals.

Let your bold color pop, or dare to wear unexpected color combinations.
