The Weirdest Color Combos from the Runways You Wouldn't Think to Try
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.
Intense Yellow + Pale Pink (above)
Crimson Red + Fuchsia
Pit bold against bold with piping-hot red and fuchsia. At Roksanda, the designer layered a shaggy vest over a color-blocked turtleneck. Achieve the same aesthetic and layer a red knit under a flirty dress.Shop the combo: Mango turtleneck, $8; mango.com. Cynthia Rowley dress, $269; cynthiarowley.com.
Orange + Army Green
Admittedly, this one is trickier to pull off. But take a cue from the Mary Katrantzou runway and break up the conflicting shades with a color-block top or with layers.Shop the combo: Roksanda top, $1,175; net-a-porter.com. River Island culottes, $64; riverisland.com.
Lime Green + Cobalt Blue
Accessorize a pale lime green topper with cobalt blue accessories, like at Prada, or a pretty lace cami underneath.Shop the combo: French Connection jacket, $248; frenchconnection.com. Cami NYC cami, $148; caminyc.com.
Burgundy + Lavender
It's a balancing act with this one—counter the heavy Bordeaux shade with light lavender and offset structured silhouettes (like the blazer at Gucci, or a pencil skirt) with flirty finishes in pleats or lace accents.Shop the combo: Madewell top, $88; madewell.com. A.L.C. skirt, $229; thecorner.com.
