Season after season, the runway becomes a revolving door of new trends, silhouettes, styling tricks, and color. And it's the color that has caught our eye at the fall/winter 2015 collections. Or more specifically, the range of offbeat colors. Remember the time when coupling blue and black was radical? Well, these combos are next-level weird,—but we're surprisingly taken by their offbeat touch. Jarring at first glance, these eccentric pairings take a while to sink in, so don't dismiss them just yet.
