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.
A fiery orange dress is an easy and effortless way to work this hue into your wardrobe. Julia of the blog Gal Meets Glam rocks a solid orange dress but tones down the color by pairing it with neutral accessories. If you're not into the all-over orange look, try an orange printed dress instead.
Dubai-based style blogger Teresa of Style Drifter adds a feminine touch to her blue-collar denim dungarees with a pair of orange strappy heels. Orange pumps are an easy way to elevate your look and introduce orange into your wardrobe.
Orange Maxi Skirt
Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere added a touch of orange to her ensemble to pop against her white dress. A necklace is a no-fail way to get in on this trend, and it's usually a budget-friendly one as well.
L.A. style babe Shea of Peace Love Shea brightens up her black-and-white ensemble with this warm orange top. The color really pops in the California sunshine! The next time you reach for an all black-and-white outfit, consider shaking up your style with an orange color shock.
