After spotting colors like burnt orange and marigold on the catwalks for fall 2011, it was only a matter of time before these gorgeous colors made an early leap into summer and pre-fall wardrobes. Orange is a color that lets you get away with being shocking whatever season it may be. It’s bold, fearless and adventurous and it most definitely makes a statement. To the left, check out some daring variations of “orange” looks on celebrities taking a fashion leap.
I’m a huge fan of the color as well. As bold as it is, it’s also pretty practical if you play your cards right. One of my favorite dresses is a 50s style orange dress with a pleated skirt by Isaac Mizrahi for Liz Claiborne. I’ve worn the dress alone, with a sweater and even put a twist on it by wearing it as a skirt.
Style Tip: Green, brown and black are great colors to mix with this shade.
So what do you think of going orange and I’m not talking the Snooki version… Too bright or just right?
