Sometimes a little rust isn’t bad…
I mean yeah, I hate it on the top of a mason jar (containing body scrub)… but the color itself is gorge. Rust is the “it” color of autumn, and it flatters all skin tones. Anything looks chic in rust, even a crewneck sweatshirt. Plus, it pairs well with everything (dark denim, brown, white, even pink)! Here’s how to werq it…
Sleek – Play it safe by rocking rust with basic neutrals (white, black, beige). The shade itself is enough to make a statement. This style is ideal for the office. Keep it sleek with shiny locks and solid pumps, like Leighton.
Trendy – Sometimes too much is a good thing. J’adore all the trends that Olivia is getting down and dirty with. When mixing trends, stick to similar shades that compliment each other.
Bold – Who knew that rust could werq with pink?… Shay Mitchell did. I think rust would look sickening paired with plum and emerald too.
Shop The Look
Rust is everywhere, get some.
Jeans – Rusty jeans are edgy. They look stylish when paired with a creamy cable knit, or a few light layers. These jeggings are available at American Eagle for $49.95. I love AE jeans.
Dress – You can never go wrong with a cinched waist. I’d rock a rusty midi with a cropped jacket, either denim or brown leather. You can order this dress from Target for $28, I haven’t seen it there… but then again, I haven’t seen NYX there either.
Tights – I’m obsessed with rusty tights and grey dresses. That color combo is everything. You can score this pair from Modcloth for $15, but Xhileration also has a pretty good pair for $5. I like to get cheap tights because my pugs always ruin them.
Purse – Recognize this bag? It’s featured in the mood board above. This purse is available at ALDO for $40. $40 is a nice price for a spacious bag.
Rust is a must.
