Fall’s Coolest Color Combo: Orange and Pale Pink

From the very second I saw a look from designer Ran Fan‘s Fall 2015 collection, I not only considered the China-based label one to watch, but I also became fixated on an unlikely color combination: orange and pastel pink.

One particularly striking look showcased a soft-orange tweedy overcoat with a baby-pink fur collar—gorgeous in and of itself—but the model also wore a pink sweater underneath and carried two small leather bags in darker shades of pink and orange. I’d never really thought about wearing those colors together—unexpected but so beautiful that I ransacked my own closet for anything that could replicate the look.

Personally, I’m a fan of going big when it comes to color combining—a saturated overcoat paired with bold trousers, for example—but I’m not always willing to invest in a bright winter jacket, so I’ve found that pairing two basic separates or choosing a solid dress and adding an accent shoe is a good way to play with varying shades.

Here, 12 gorgeous orange or pale-pink pieces to shop now at every price point—just make sure you wear them together.
