Orange You Glad it’s Spring? Orange fashion trends.

OK, please excuse the bad “orange” pun (it was either that or “Leap into Spring!” you know…for Leap Year?). All bad jokes aside, I can’t ignore the need for orange in my wardrobe any longer. I already gave Rihanna some serious props for her orange pumps (and now am in dire need of a pair for myself) and am giving second thoughts to this former “no no” fashion color.

The bottom line is that orange is no easy hue to pull off. You have to match the right shade to your skin tone or else you could just look like a great big mess. But don’t be afraid; there are many ways to incorporate some orange into your look without washing yourself out. Check out these fresh squeezed ideas:

1) Earrings


Vintage Faux Coral and Wood Earrings, $32.00

I love the new-age tropical vibe that these earrings inspire…this is the perfect amount of orange for the wary fashionista, and a great addition to your spring wardrobe. These earrings are just begging to be taken to the beach.

2) Dresses


Free People Sylvie Dress, $148.00

I honestly like this better than Mrs. Beckhams Donna Karan kimono dress…so flirty and springy, you could wear this virtually anywhere. Dress it down with a jean jacket for a dinner date, or dress it up with heels and a clutch for a wedding or party.

3) Bags


Marc Jacobs Quilted Mary BagÂ

This coral quilted bag from Marc Jacobs is perfect for spring and will go with just about anything. Whether paired with jeans and a tee shirt, business attire or a flirty spring dress, an orange bag will get you more mileage than you think.

You don’t have to over-do it with the orange…the whole purpose of wearing this hue this spring is to add an element of surprise to your look. Pair an orange clutch with a solid white tee and jeans, orange earrings with a floral dress or (if you are lucky enough to find them) orange heels with a solid colored ensemble. Use your imagination to create your own juicy looks this spring.
