The fall runways debuted an array of looks that blur the line between color clashing and unique color combos. Teaming vibrant tones with offbeat hues isn't an easy task to take on, but with the right inspiration and layering pieces, you can pull it off.

Think orange, red, and black is a nay? The designers at Valentino (above, left), Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, say it's a yay. Gray, pink, and brown may seem tough to incorporate into one look, but the Marni runway (above, center) proved it's possible to do so. If you're looking to wear various shades of one color, Peter Copping showed us how it's done at Oscar de la Renta (above, right).

Read on to shop perfectly paired looks inspired by the most daring color combos on the runway.
