When choosing an outfit to wear, usually we start out with an idea or vision of what we want to wear. A lot of times, this vision comes from one particular style or garment that you’re in the mood for. Sometimes, you’re feeling edgy and want to wear leather. Other days, you feel dainty and want to wear lace. And every once in awhile, you’re in the mood to wear orange.
Orange has come a long way in the fashion world. It used to be seen as a very loud shade, but now it is becoming much more of a staple, and dare I say… a neutral. Basically, orange is the new black (not just a Netflix show), and there are plenty of ways to style orange without feeling like your outfit is overly flamboyant.

If you’re feeling bold and fearless, you can wear an orange dress for your next nighttime activity. Orange has recently catapulted to the top of fashion editors’ lists of stylish colors, and you’ll definitely make a statement when you walk into the room wearing a “bright cocktail dress,” like this edit suggests. Orange exudes energy, so it’s a great color to wear when you’re in the mood for a lot of fun.
Another way to wear orange is to invest in an orange lace skirt and style it with its dark counterpart, black. Some people might shy away from this color combo, but if you look at the inspiration in this slideshow, you’ll see that there are plenty of ways to manipulate these colors to work for the style you want. Wearing an orange lace skirt adds a feminine touch to a black top.
You can also choose to wear orange in the form of a punchy sweater or topper, as in this photo. Since the hue is so attention-grabbing, making it a pop-of-color in your outfit is a very stylish decision. Keep the rest of your threads in the monochromatic realm, and you’ll have fabulous contrast. With this type of look, the intrigue is in the comparison, not in busy patterns.
But you can choose to bring it up to the next level with fun orange-and-red patterns if you’d like. If you’re not comfortable with mixing patterns on your own, the best way to wear loud shades and hectic patterns at the same time is to do so with a tribal-inspired dress. However, if you like to dabble in mixing patterns, remember that the key is to choose one dominant print and then choose another as an accent.
It doesn’t take a lot of confidence to add orange into your wardrobe. Even though it’s an attention-grabbing shade, as long as you know how to wear it, you’ll come off as extremely fashion-forward. Some might even dare to say you’re a trendsetter! Do leave me your comments here and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Bloglovin | Pinterest
