We get it. Color isn't for everyone. If you open up your closet and it looks like the world's all of a sudden changed into black-and-white or a sepia-toned photograph, that's totally fine — it's just your thing. But you are the perfect candidate, then, to try this color trend we spotted on the Carven runway.

Though Carven is typically a brand that likes to play around with rainbow hues, its fall 2016 showing was surprisingly neutral, dominated by black-and-white checks, tan leathers, shiny black patent, and camel knits. But interspersed between them all were strategically placed pops — no, explosions — of color that made such a big impact, that the Refinery29 team was left hankering after a specific shade of purple, orange, or green.

It wasn't large swaths of color, though. In most cases, it was just the neck of a turtleneck, the lining of a collar, or the hem of a skirt that deviated from the black-white-brown scheme. So for colorphobes, this isn't a particularly challenging trend to try out, but it will make a big difference. Click through to see five ways Carven incorporated tiny bits of color into its looks, and why you should, too.
