Rust and russet orange are the two fashion colors with a very specific attribute: Natural warmth. Without being as resplendent as the richest reds, these hues irradiate still a magnetic aura and can easily become an vibrant eye-catcher. With its alluring romantic nature, rust is ideal for fashion looks with a nostalgic vintage flair. Russet orange, a rich orange shade with a soft brownish touch, is more energetic and proves to be the best choice for high-spirited, charismatic looks. Both fashion colors have notably something in common: They appear glamorous and nonchalant as well and can be easily matched with each other!
Below, your will find ten selected high-end fashion looks in rust and russet orange: Each of them embodying a very characteristic, unmistakable style!

2. The Romantic Western Look

Rendering homage to the refinement of this piece, you can create a unique fashion look with light grey pieces like the Suede leather pumps by Prada and the Knot satin clutch by Bottega Veneta.
4. The Color-Blocking Look
The minimalist style captivates with simple lines and shapes. Combined with the power of color-blocking, it acquires a more energetic expression. The Jersey dress Mya by Tory Burch shows us easily how this happens. On the basis of a creamy white, a deep blue block is cut by a golden yellow edge, that leads us to the protagonist of the season: A rich russet orange! You can give this look an elegant touch with the Golden leather top ballerinas by Gianvito Rossi and the Stella Star bag by Stella McCartney in delicate cream and gold shades.
5. The Casual Patchwork-Look
There is nothing more ideal for a casual vintage look, than a tasteful patchwork fashion piece. Combined with deep blue and golden yellow, Tory Burch presents us here the Silk shirt dress Bianca in russet orange with ingenious geometric prints. We complete this nonchalant fashion look with comfortable accessories in neutral hues like the Rockstud patent leather ballerinas by Valentino Garavani and the Leather bag Nile by Chloé.
