Orange Is the New Black: Fashion's Newest Must-Have Hue

After a wildly addictive first season, the Netflix drama Orange Is the New Black returns for another round on June 6. Starring Taylor Schilling, the dark comedy is packed with estrogen, one-liners, and of course the "IT" color for spring and summer: orange. Do you think the creators knew that while they were writing a hit show they were also solidifying a major trend in ready-to-wear fashion (minus the cuffs and chains, of course)? Here are 13 ways you can introduce orange into your summer wardrobe, as modeled by some of our favorite style mavens.
