How to wear orange. A colour which embodies the warmth and optimism of the sun. It is an uplifting and encouraging colour which will be your best friend, a companion of sorts, especially during a tough day. Traditionally, orange is thought of as a colour that is difficult to pull off. Many of us do not reach for it when it hangs in our closets, but it is a radiant shade that bestows upon us a natural glow. On the colour spectrum, it sits between fiery red and cheerful yellow thus allowing each of us to find a flattering shade for our skin tone.
I love orange against denim as blue sits on the opposite end of the colour wheel and is therefore the perfect contrast. A dark jean jacket is the perfect compliment to an uplifting orange dress or top. With a great pair of heels or ankle boots, you’ve suddenly got a girly outfit with a twist. A simple shift dress will definitely help you stand out in a crowd. This is a confident colour that inspires independence and competition. This spring, I will be wearing my spectacular feather earrings from Fly & Fierce Boutique. Bright and happy and little boho chic, they are an ideal addition to my wardrobe. They will look fantastic when a light breeze catches my hair as I sit at a cafe chatting with friends.
Another favourite pairing of mine is orange and white. It’s fresh, vibrant and uninhibited. It’s always best to take a lesson from nature. Picture a giant fruit bowl filled with oranges and lemons, sitting on your kitchen counter. What a wonderful spring/summer combination. A pair of straw wedges, dark denim jeans with an orange blouse and a yellow bag and you are ready for a day of shopping with friends. How about pairing an orange cotton shift dress with a yellow head scarf and a great straw tote? Suddenly you are ready for an afternoon picnic. This is most certainly a colour we should not shy away from. Worn head to toe, it may be a little much, but in moderation it will improve your mood and outlook. So this spring, weave some orange into your look!
