Hello friend! With the transition to winter, I will also update some of my color combinations. In winter, I tend to work in more cooler neutrals, like gray. For a seamless transition from fall to winter, I will pair gray and mustard in my outfits. This color combination combines one of my favorite fall colors with one of my favorite winter colors. Therefore, it’s guaranteed to be a winning combination! Let’s see the proof:
Gray and Mustard for Work
Add some interest to your work outfit by incorporating this new color scheme into your work wear.
In this outfit, the gray and mustard are already paired together in the skirt. Therefore, I simply played off of that by adding touches of mustard elsewhere. For example, I wore mustard shoes and a blouse with mustard accents.
Winter Ready in Gray and Mustard
Another work (or going out) outfit can be achieved by pairing a chunky turtleneck sweater with a yellow skirt. Actually, in this outfit, I wore the sweater over a dress (one of my favorite little tricks!) The effect is still the same; in essence it looks like a flowy skirt paired with a sweater. Moreover, it’s a smart way to extend the wear of your lighter weight dresses.
For accessories, I went off the black accents in the print of the dress and chose to add black shoes and a bag. For earrings, I added my black Chiquita drop earrings.
Casual Gray and Mustard
Take this color combination into other aspects of your life too. It is easy to make a casual look with gray and mustard. Here I paired a sweater and button down. The sweater already had both colors in it. The gray from the shirt solidifies the color palette. An added bonus is of course the fun pattern mix.
I played up the accessories for this look with a pretty pendant necklace and some fun bracelets.
Color Blocked in Gray and Mustard
For a casual going out look, I chose to concentrate on the colors themselves. Therefore I chose solids and went for a color-blocked outfit. This gray cold shoulder sweater has been a great piece this winter (and at a great price point). While it keeps me covered and warm (the cold shoulder is truly not that cold!), it also adds style and flair to any outfit. Furthermore, the ruffle adds a sweet and romantic touch.
The bold color of the skirt is exactly what I was looking for. You know that I like pairing mustard with various other colors. Previously I have done posts on mustard and mint as well as mustard and burgundy, therefore I like having a bold mustard skirt in my closet. So when I saw this one at J.Crew over the holidays, I knew it had to be mine! I adore the nautical details in the buttons. It has since sold out, but here are some other options:
Toss in my favorite booties and the color block is complete. This allows for each piece to stand out on its own. For accessories I chose one standout piece, these amazing crescent earrings. In addition to the earrings, I went bold with my lip color too. This is the NYX liquid lipstick in Kitten Heels. It’s a bright red with a tinge of orange. It really brightens up the face!
I hope you will try these colors together. As always, I have linked the available items below.
