Surely I’m not the only one who steers clear of this color combination at the risk of looking a little Halloweenie. Yet maybe there is a cool way to pull off orange and black, as demonstrated by these eight designers on fall 2012 runways.

Perhaps the trick to pulling it off is to to keep it polished and expensive-looking. That basically means: good fit, good fabric, and good taste. A cheap pair of polyester pants and a pilly sweater will look exactly like Halloween.

Style your outfit to look intentional, not thrown together, and then finish it off with white, nude, or metallic accessories to pull eyes away from the block of orange and black.
