Colors were, are and will always be the basis in any art. This principle remains true in the fashion universe where colors express a mood or they enhance a person's natural beauty. In what concerns me, colors are the salt and pepper of any look. Period. This season, colors are reinvented, they are mixed rather complementary in order to get strong contrasts. Below, you will find some examples of color pairings that will make you look stunning this fall:

1. Red + brown + yellow

Somehow spectacular, this pairing makes me think of fall leaves. The idea behind this combination is to choose two shades that are very close to each other in the color wheel plus another color that brings some contrast to the overall look. This last color may be totally opposite, like blue, or in the same color palette. I applied this idea with the brown skirt and tights, the red turtleneck and the yellow heels.

2. Forest green + lilac

Both green and purple are extremely popular this season. New rule: colors that match the season are out of style. Contrasts can be seen everywhere. More precisely, you can wear a monochrome green look during fall or a monochrome gray look during spring. The choice is yours!

3. Orange + green + blue

I know what you're thinking: what is too much, is too much. Well, let me tell you something: in the fashion domain, if you know how to keep proportions, this principle is not valid anymore. For example, in the image, you can see an outfit where the green palace pants are balanced by the bold orange sweater. And that mini blue handbag is too cute!

4. Fuchsia + orange

I love fuchsia. This vibrant and bold color really adds energy to any outfit. Imagine, for a few seconds, a pair of light washed jeans, a white shirt, and an oversized fuchsia blazer. Now you get it, right? Personally, I'm in love with the pairing between fuchsia and red, but in the past few months, a new uber-cool combination gains more likes in the fashion universe. It's all about orange and fuchsia, which is the perfect pairing to wear during a moody fall day.

5. Red + cyan

Another color pairing that really amazes me this fall is the pairing between red and cyan. The passionate and fiery red is toned down by this light shade of blue, which is everything but not dull. Plus, it's a pairing that will delight your passion for color clashing.
