Halloween is right around the corner, which is bad news for the color orange. Orange gets the cold shoulder because people are so afraid of looking “Halloween-y”. I have news for you, you can wear orange without looking scary. Just follow my tips and you’ll be totally fine.
You don’t have to skip black altogether when you’re rocking orange this fall; just make sure it’s not the only other color in your look. If black is your thing, try mixing it with a more subtle shade of orange like melon or sorbet.
Abstract patterns are really having a moment this fall, and a ton have orange incorporated in them. Here’s a little secret: You don’t have to go with full-on orange to enjoy the trend. Roberto Cavalli and Clover Canyon both have some really great orange-based pieces this season that are definitely at the top of my shopping list.
Navy doesn’t get the credit it deserves. This chic alternative to black looks simply sophisticated when paired with orange. And trust me: No one will think you are channeling a jack-o’-lantern.
Finally—and this applies to anything you wear—be confident when you rock out your orange threads this fall. If you walk out of the house feeling less than confident, you’ll end up looking foolish. Remember: Orange is just a color, and although Halloween insists on a fright factor, there’s no need to be scared of it.
