My Favorite Fall Color Combination: Black & Gold

My Favorite Color Combination For Fall | Black and Gold | neutral color palette | street style | fall fashion | affordable fashion

Funny story: There are 3 public universities in Iowa. One school’s colors are purple and gold, my school colors are red and gold, and my school’s biggest rival’s colors are black and gold. I nearly went to that school just because I liked the colors better!

If you take a look into my closet, you will see no shortage of black and gold. I have jewelry, accessories, clothing, shoes, and even home decor in the color combination. When in doubt, they’re the first colors I gravitate towards. They’re my bread and butter of the rainbow, if you will (let’s pretend it’s ROY G BIV BG).

All jokes aside, black and gold seriously is one of my favorite color combinations, especially for fall. It’s classic, sophisticated, and easy. You can’t go wrong with it! I have a feeling that I’ll be wearing this look a lot this season!

  3. Great look. I love black and white. I had a thing about not wearing too much black when I was coaching. I felt I ought to be more colourful. Now I’m full time blogging, I’m naturally drawn back to black, navy and greys. I love these colours for clothes. You look fab by the way.

    1. Thank you Wendy – and that’s interesting that your color choices changed when your job changed!
