I actually love to wear the color orange. I have two orange dresses, as well as an orange sweater (which is a favorite of mine). Orange just has a stand-out quality to me, it's so vibrant and fun. And because Pantone's 2012 Color of the Year is Tangerine Tango, I'm seeing fun shades of orange everywhere in the fashion scene. Here are some orange-based outfits I would love to be wearing right now:
This orange dress is divine! I love the orange and teal combination, so these patent flatforms really make this outfit to me. The sweet pinwheel necklace, Jackie-O inspired sunglasses, and ivory ankle socks give this a polished look without taking away from the detail of the dress. I added in a classic brown leather satchel to neutralize the brightness of the outfit a bit.
When I go out to run errands I like to dress as comfortably as possible, but I try to dress up with my accessories. And what's the most important accessory when running errands? For me, it's a cute, oversized bag, and this bright orange and hot pink bag from Modcloth fits the bill (plus it's the exact colors of my room right now!). Wide leg jeans and a belted tunic provide the perfect backdrop for this bold bag, just throw in a patterned scarf, a fierce ring, and some comfy sandals, and you're ready to go!
I like to dress up for school, more than most. Maybe it's because cute skirts and frilly blouses wouldn't be the best choice for the veterinary clinic I work at, who knows. This sheer orange blouse would be an easy pick for me in any school outfit. Pairing it with a high-waisted black skirt, cut-out flats, white tights, a bright backpack, and the cutest bunny cardigan ever really gives this blouse a schoolgirl-esque vibe. The airplane statement ring and black bowler hat add an edge to this incredibly cutesy outfit.
So what's taking up space in your dream closet right now? Oh, and Happy Easter!
