ORANGE YOU GLAD: A COLOR THAT YOU CAN CLUTCH, WALK & ROCK!

Lately I have been seeing orange everywhere, ad campaigns, editorials, streetstyle pictures and in my favorite cup. I have been drinking orange juice every morning, this isn't normal for me, so of course I think it has to do with the attraction I have for the color.








I must confess that I don't use orange as often as I should. I have regretfully categorized it as Halloween appropriate only. I am not afraid to admit when am wrong and with the inspiring examples I have found and displayed in this post, its pretty obvious I am.


















Orange is the swift kick my closet needs right now. It can be independent or a perfect partner in color, the orange/turquoise combination above is so unexpected, but works in the "why didn't I think of that?" kind of way. If wearing a full on dress or top is a little to much for you right now, work it in as a clutch or add to your outfit with a pair of killer orange heels.
I know Orange is not a color that one first thinks of or reaches for, but the next time you're looking for an outfit or a color to add a little pop into your look.... why don't you give orange a chance?

Love this! I had an Esprit orange sweater in college that I wore the crap out of! I felt special in it because it was a bright orange! I just remembered I do have an orange bag that I love wearing because it's a subdued orange so I treat it as a neutral or it can be used as a splash of color against a head to toe black look. I also love Eva's dress- the orange looks spectacularly fierce with the pink and also love Ashley's clutch! xo, Mel

I must say, my eye does wander to orange when I'm looking for something special. It's kind of like the new red, if I'm looking for an item that will really pop. And I love that it's not just seasonal; orange is very wearable in the cold months. If nothing else, it's a nice welcome from the grey days!

I'm not usually a fan of orange either but found myself craving this H&M orange skirt a few weeks ago. I do like the nice pop of color it provides. Adore the orange top and teal pants combo. Great inspiration pics!
