Orange Is Optimal

Orange: the most feared colour by women, has found its place in the trend market.

This fiery hue that has often been the concern of making women look “washed out” or giving them a “Jack-O-lantern” look has finally expanded from the Halloween hoopla and into our wardrobes!

As it lit up the runways of spring 2013, fashion designers have since longed for more and established orange as the main focus of fall season. Not only is it making its mark onto pieces of clothing but you can also simmer on the streets with orange lipstick. Showcasing a much more youthful and playful side of yourself, opting for orange would be an ideal alternative as opposed to the same old classic red you’re used to. Stepping outside of the box is good for a change, no? Luckily for us, this bold colour is predicted to be a definite hit in spring 2014. Gahhh, I can barely contain my excitement! But in all honesty though, could orange be the new black? I wouldn’t mind. I mean, let’s face it ladies, the only way you’re going to look like a pumpkin is if you’re wearing a pumpkin costume. That’s about it.

This beautiful colour comes in many different shades and can look great on any skin tone. While pastel shades of orange generally look great on fairer skin tones, deeper and bolder shades compliment olive and darker tones.

The 3/4 length trousers that I’m wearing above are of a deep orange that isn’t quite shown in my pictures. Due to my little knowledge and lack of photographic skills, finding the right light at 8 pm wasn’t such a good idea on my part. I took these pictures on a lovely summer’s day in July and so I decided to pair these wonderful trousers with a white crop top along with my black-straw quilted handbag to give it a casual yet, ready to go about town vibe. These trousers are comfortable, fashionable and versatile. Wearing the trousers with a grey, white or black knit would make a killer combo for fall . Wondering where I purchased my pieces?
