Do you ever get tired of your tried and true color combos?  Where do you get inspo for new color pairing ideas?  I get them everywhere.  Sometimes I see two colors on a food label, sometimes I see two colors together in a painting or on a school textbook!  I love color and color is everywhere around you.  My mom is a retired art teacher and my sister is an art teacher.  Even though I didn’t get the artistic gene, I like to be creative in fashion.  

My closet is crazy right now.  Last week it was 90 degrees and now it is decidedly more fall like outside, but I have all the seasons hanging out right now.  I really can’t wait to pack away some stuff so I can see what I have and work with a transitional early fall wardrobe.  

Here are some early fall combos you may like.  Look in your closet and see what you have.  You may be surprised.  What I have found with thinking about new color combos is that I can really shop my closet.  

Orange and Grey

Black and White with cognac

Purple and Black

Mustard and Wine

Grey and Cognac

Below is an example of mustard and wine.  This is a Lularoe Cassie pencil skirt and my trusty wine knit top from Nordstrom.  These pieces will definitely make my early fall capsule wardrobe.  The earrings are leather by ADVdesigns from Etsy.  


Next I have an example of grey and cognac.  This is a light grey long sleeve swing dress with my only pair of Nickel and Suede earrings in cognac and an oatmeal Loft vest.  


Here we have purple and black.  This pencil skirt is from Kohl’s many years ago.  The cross top is from Chico’s and I’ve worn the heck out of it.  It is 3/4 length sleeves and a nice non-wrinkle material.  I love, love, love tortoise shell and picked this up at a little boutique for $8 about a month ago.  


Orange and grey really look nice together and it’s a bit unexpected.  This is a Nordstrom blouse from many years ago. It is kind of a tie dye with the lace on the bottom and these earrings are from a little boutique last year.  img_3852.jpg

Black and white with a bit of cognac thrown in is kind of fun.  This is a swing tunic from last year that I can wear with leggings or a pencil skirt.  The metallic feather earrings are fun and make it not so matchy matchy in my opinion.  img_3853.jpg

Which is your favorite color pairing?  Do you have any color pairings that I may not have thought about?  

Thanks for stopping by!  Come back tomorrow for What I Wore Wednesday and my link up with The Blended Blog on plaid/flannel shirts.

  1. I especially like your black/cognac combo! I have a Kendra Scott necklace and earrings in turquoise and I love to wear them with magenta or with an orange/bittersweet color.


  2. Love your blog!! Very nice color combinations, my favorite is the grey and cognac. I’ve been following blogs a long time, and I love that yours feels relatable!!
