When it comes to summer trends, there is nothing as playful as bright, sunny hues. Typically reserved for the cooler fall season, I am super excited to see orange on the style calendar for this summer! In fact, a variety of the season’s runway collections were abound with none other than orange, orange, orange! From neon to tangerine and orange cream, this flashy color is perfect for all looks this season and can be easily pulled off by girls of all styles. Whether dressing up, dressing down, or heading to the office, we’ve compiled a go-to style guide for how to wear this fun trend — without looking like The Great Pumpkin.
Available in a variety of gorgeous shades, orange pairs nicely with a variety of other colors, but try to stick with lighter hues to avoid looking out of place this summer. Try pairing it with shades of blue, purple, yellow, and even, well, orange! That’s right, two shades of the same color can pair nicely. Just make sure that one is darker than the other. For example, this fitted, one-shoulder dress drapes in all the right places and pairs perfectly with slightly darker orange wedges.
Orange can be worn casually, as well. As you all know, colored skinny jeans are a must this season and this neon orange pair looks adorable with a white lace top — another hot trend this season! Thinking about orange for the office? This belted blouse looks stylish and professional with black trouser shorts.
Another great way to wear this trend is through your accessories. Nail polish, scarves, and shoes are a safe way to add a pop of color to an otherwise drab ensemble. Now, let’s talk handbags! Handbags are perfect for trying out a new color trend. This faux ostrich oversized handbag is absolutely to-die-for — and it looks much fancier than its $60 price tag!
