1. Caramel and cotton

2. Black and burgundy

Black isn’t going anywhere in regards to Halloween décor, but pair it with burgundy and it’s like bringing the color back from the dead. Burgundy and black create a dark and moody palette that is perfect to incorporate into your wearable Halloween décor (aka, your costume). It’s rich, bold, and oozes with drama.

3. Eggplant and amethyst

And because not everything has to be spider webs and tombstones, have some fun by featuring different shades of purples in your décor. From saturated eggplants to lively amethysts, purple is a sure fire way to stand out amongst a sea of black and orange.
