How to Wear Rust This Season

November 16, 2017

I've never been much of a red person. It's always felt a bit too bold and bright for me, and while I do love color, I just don't love red. That's not to say I don't love shades of red though, which brings me to my favorite this season: rust. 

There are a few ways I've incorporated rust into my wardrobe this season. Since it's on the darker side, I love mixing it with lighter tones. For example, light wash denim like I'm wearing here or with creams and taupes. I've also found a few pairs of rust bottoms that I love, and nothing has paired more perfectly than a chunky ivory sweater. Try mixing it with metallics too, gold and rose gold in particular. 

I picked up this lace top for our Charleston trip, which was perfect for brisk mornings. It is sheer, so I layered it with a nude cami, which ended up being perfect. I've gotten so much use out of it that I picked it up in two more colors. It's definitely been one of my go-to layering pieces! 

I've linked up a few of my favorite pieces in rust that I've picked up this season, and some that are currently on my wishlist.
