Rust and russet orange are two of this saison’s fashion colors that guarantee a special effect: The feeling of natural warmth. Without being as resplendent as the richest reds, these shades irradiate a nonchalant charm and can easily become a happy eye-catcher. Both fashion colors distinguish themselves through their soft, friendly aura and show off their best sides in flowing, airy looks.

While the color rust owns a romantic nature, that makes it ideal for fashion looks with a nostalgic vintage flair, russet orange is truly vibrant and charismatic. This rich orange shade -with a soft brownish touch- is the perfect color for high-spirited personalities, who at times enjoy being the center of attention. Rust and russet orange can appear both glamorous and casual and can be easily matched together, as well.
