While it is obvious that you can wear any color any time you want, we can’t deny the fact that some colors just look perfect for a specific weather or season. Muted and slightly darker tones are undeniably best to wear in fall just as bright yellows, pinks, and white seem to be great for summer. In fall, we typically ditch our colorful tops and dresses, and trade them out with earthy hues such as brown, pumpkin, and army green. However, this season is also all about jewel and bold hues. We’ve already seen these standout colors in runways, and it’s we take it to our wardrobes.

Determining which color to wear is surely a matter of choice. You can always avoid a specific color, be bright, or just wear black every day. But don’t forget that experimenting with your look by adding some colors to your outfit is never a bad idea. So, keep scrolling and check out these twelve beautiful hues that will make your fall OOTDs totally head-turning.
Burgundy is a dark shade of red very similar to maroon. However, they are different in subtle ways. Burgundy has a purple tinge while maroon is achieved by combining red and brown. While both colors are great for fall, we find burgundy as flattering as black because of its dark tone. It can look great with almost anything and complements everyone.
Burgundy coats, suits, pants, dresses, and even boots are surely a hit in fall. Not a fan of deep reds? Then try wearing a sweater with touches of burgundy such as the one below with your denim jeans for a perfect weekend look.
#2 MUSTARD YELLOW
From the name itself, this color resembles the condiment mustard which is dark or dull shade of yellow. It is considered to be a warm tone in the color spectrum and is one of the most timeless colors for fall. When wearing mustard yellow or when pairing it with other colors, you have to decide first what you want to achieve. It goes well with black and blues, but also looks great with berry tones and whites.
One of the most popular fall pieces is the mustard sweater. Such piece can be worn with any kind of bottoms. You can match it with your black or blue jeans, ripped or conventional or even with your boyfriend jeans. Wear it with your lacy or denim skirts and it’ll surely be a hit. Pair it with your denim shorts and you’ll be a rocking a stunning look for a not-so-cold fall afternoon.
#3 ARMY GREEN
Army green is a dark or dull shade of green with brown undertone. It is very similar to olive and sage green but is slightly darker. Army green can definitely look good in almost everyone. But you have to choose the right shade of army green for your skin tone. But this shade of green perfectly complements pale or fair skin because dark hues creates a great contrast against such.
Also, this color is extremely versatile. It works like neutrals and is great color choice for any look and outfit. And we can’t also deny the fact that there so many awesome items like sweaters, jackets, tops, and blazers in this color. Try on an army green blazer over a black tank top and denim jeans and you will not be disappointed.
Grey is the color between black and white. While some find it drab and bland, it is definitely one of the top neutral colors for the colder seasons. It has been a staple for autumn and winter and it only changes in shade from season to season. For fall, top designers love soft, light, and romantic grey. It is widely used mainly in sweaters and coats.
Wearing grey doesn’t need to be boring. In fact, the choices are limitless when it comes to wearing it. Since it’s a neutral color, you can match it with pastel colors such as pink or with darker colors such as black and black and dark green.

#5 RED AND ORANGE
Red and orange are colors can definitely be worn from summer to fall. In runways, designers love to dress their models in top-to-toe bright red. If you don’t feel bold enough to rock that all-red ensemble in your street style, you can always opt to red tops, red pants, or red blazers. If you are not into poppy red, you can also opt to shades between red and orange, which is another great fall color. Take this sweater in rust red for example. It’s not bright red, but definitely as attractive as the latter.
Pink is another color that can be worn for a number of seasons. Good news is that it doesn’t really matter whether it’s pale pink or fuschia. All shades of pink are on a rave this year. What we love about pink is that it can effortlessly give you a chic sophisticated look to beautiful romantic getup. For fall, you can bring out that crisp fuschia pants you’ve been hiding and match it with your white shirts. Cardigans, sweaters, and jackets in shades of pink are also great options.
Though purple is commonly associated with summer, all can agree that it is also great for fall and winter. In summer, purple is all about pastel hues and light shades. But as the weather turns colder, your choice of purple should also be the much darker shades. Good thing is that dark shades of purple can give your that instant elegance, so it is a great option if you want to power dress. On the other hand, you can also take it to a much casual style such as a pullover and ripped jeans combo.
