Haute Halloween

Believe it or not, Halloween’s go-to hues don’t have to be cheesy. Black and orange can actually be a pretty stylish color combination when it doesn’t involve pumpkins, witches' hats and goblins. We rounded up a few fashionable ways to show your love for Halloween without looking like you’re wearing a costume.

black pleated clutch

Arm candy

More stylish than spooky, we were instantly intrigued by this streamlined black pleated clutch with neon orange piping ($158). Just the right size for all your night-out essentials, this piece would pair well with anything from your favorite LBD to your go-to office outfit.

black Jacquard pullover

Puppy pullover

Love dogs? How about graphic sweaters? If you said yes to both, you’ll love this black Jacquard pullover featuring a bold orange French bulldog ($147). Throw this cute and cozy piece on with jeans and motorcycle boots for an easy-wearing fall outfit.

ultra-chic Diane von Furstenberg silk scarf

Silky style

If you’re still skeptical about how black and orange could be anything but a cheesy color combo, you haven’t laid eyes on this ultra-chic Diane von Furstenberg silk scarf ($153). We love the eye-catching circle-link print in black and orange with hints of lavender and gray.

black Juicy Couture watch

Time check

Add a fun pop of color to any outfit with this sleek black Juicy Couture watch with an oh-so-bright neon orange face ($195). While we love our bracelets and cuffs, watches are an equally great way to accessorize and we’ll definitely be adding this one to our (growing) collection.

black tipped silk blouse in burnt orange

Bold & blousy

Kick your at-work wardrobe up a notch and show some (subtle) support for everyone’s favorite scary holiday with this elegant black tipped silk blouse in burnt orange ($215). Pair with skinny black pants and wedge booties for a statement-making office ensemble.

orange and black plaid coat

Plaid power

Fight the fall chill in this orange and black plaid coat with an oversize collar and bold orange lining ($105). While it might not be an everyday coat, we suggest tossing this one on when you really feel like getting noticed.

I like the plaid jacket and the arm candy purse. The rest is a little too Halloween-y looking for me, but I can definitely see how a lot of others would like these choices! Love the jacket though!!
