My favourite colour for summer: the rust edit

Rust has been one of my favourite colours to wear for years, I just think it pairs so well with my hair and skin tone. I got so excited when I saw that rust was becoming a pretty popular trend for the summer, and I’ve really had to restrain myself from buying everything possible in that shade.

Since I’m such a huge fan of this trend, I decided to put together a little edit for you guys with my favourite pieces in this shade. Here are my three looks!


A top like this is the easiest way to edge yourself into this trend if you don’t want a full outfit of this shade. This is such a simple top that you can really pair it with anything, and it’s easy to dress up or down depending on what kind of look you’re going for.

My favourite way to wear this is with a pair of light wash, distressed jeans/shorts for a really casual look that allows the rust colour to really pop. What I love most about this top is the wooden rings near the straps that makes this a little more summery and bohemian, and also helps to break up the colour a little bit.


I’m really into maxi skirts, so being able to combine these two trends is a dream come true for me. This skirt is a little on the lighter side, almost more of a burnt orange, but I think it still matches the colour scheme we’re going for.

Since this skirt is a pretty statement item, I love pairing it with a simple tee to make it a little more casual and perfect for everyday. I like to knot the shirt at my waist to make the look more summery and cinch the waist in a little more. I think the black works really well with the rust, but a white would look pretty too – or you could even go with a dusty yellow for a super summery outfit.


I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this dress almost all summer long, and probably into autumn too. The tortoiseshell buttons make it really cute and vintage-looking, and I love leaving a few of the buttons at the bottom open to make the silhouette a little more flowy. It also creates a pretty leg slit which is perfect for summer.

I love pairing this with gold jewellery, sandals and a rattan bag for an outfit that just screams summer. The best part of a dress like this is that you look like you’ve made way more of an effort than you actually have!

So those are my three favourite ways to wear the rust trend this summer! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments what your thoughts are on the trend. See you next time,
