When DreamWorks’ “Trolls” debuts on Nov. 4 starring Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake (well, their voices, at least!) moviegoers everywhere are going to be singing along and dreaming in color. We zeroed in on four larger-than-life colors from the movie—including fuschia, the signature color of Kendrick’s character, Poppy—that will be sure to give your wardrobe a punch this fall. Mix these vibrant hues with neutrals (see our “mild” suggestions below), or go wild and pair with other brights for a double dose of color.
Mild: To keep this stunning magenta shade the focus of your outfit, try pairing it with black basics. A fuschia clutch is the perfect accent for a LBD, or wear a chiffon fuchsia blouse with a pair of classic black pants—any silhouette from cigarette to wide-legged will do!
Wild: Cobalt blue is a strong match for fuschia; even though it’s also bright, it has enough depth to ground your whole outfit. Belt a fuschia frock with a cobalt belt, or pair a pink top with a cobalt cardigan and a trusty pair of jeans.
Wild: Turquoise really pops when paired with another bright color found in nature: coral. Match a coral necklace or scarf with a turquoise dress, or button a coral blazer over a turquoise pencil skirt.
Wild: If you’re feeling really brave, match lime with purple—either a deep shade of eggplant or a lighter-looking violet (think Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s color of the year for 2014). How cute would a lime green hat and gloves look with a violet wool coat for winter?
Mild: When it comes to neutrals, army green is your go-to to rock with all shades of orange, from creamy coral to in-your-face neon. A military-styled jacket or vest is just the right fit to layer over an orange tee or sweater. Don’t have anything army green? Try matching orange with chambray or navy for a nautical vibe.
Wild: Pair canary yellow with orange and heads will definitely turn! For a less eye-popping combination that still comes off quite bold, try crimson—and don’t shy away from prints. A crimson and canary floral skirt with an orange blouse would definitely be a showstopper!
