Orange You Glad

Ever since I fell in love with that orange Vince Camuto Dress I saw at Macy's I've been looking to add more orange into my wardrobe. Orange can be a strange color because it's perfect for summer (think sunsets and sherbet) but you have to be careful to not emulate a traffic cone when wearing it. I've been blessed with an Italian skin tone that allows me to wear any color I want, especially when I have a good tan so investing in a couple orange pieces will be on my goal list once my spending freeze ends. 
My two favorite colors to combine with orange are navy and hot pink. My theory in regards to the hot pink is if you're already going bright with orange why not double down and go all out. Navy helps neutralize the bright orange the same way black would, without adding that extra Halloween touch. For those of you who are hesitate to add orange into your wardrobe, it might be better to start off small which is why I included handbags, shoes, sunnies and nail polish to my picks. Incorporating tiny hints of the citrusy color can still get the same effect without going all out. Then eventually when you get more comfortable you can add more adventurous pieces into your wardrobe. 

Are you a fan of orange?

  4. I've always been a little hesitant when it comes to orange, but I love orange and hot pink together in the summer! I like your idea of adding orange into your wardrobe with small touches...I got a bright orange tote bag and my sister got the hot pink (I was a little jealous at first, not gonna lie), but when we were together with our bags, I always got tons of compliments on the color of mine! :)

  7. Orange is my favorite color! You are so right, though, it is a hard color to wear. I am always looking for ways to incorporate it into my wardrobe without overdoing it :)

  8. I love your picks! I'm not too sure how well orange would go with my fair skin, but I'm definitely up for wearing that orange nail polish :)
