Trend Report: Orange Is The New Black

From beauty looks to fashion, orange has become a key wardrobe essential adding much needed brightness and colour into your winter style. From delicious tangerine to carrot shades and lighter honey hues, it’s all about injecting a little warmth into your wardrobe by adding powerful energy into your look.

The fiery hue was seen on the catwalk throughout fashion week, from orange stained lips at New York Fashion Week, to striking designs at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.

Designers are jumping on board this dynamic trend combining it with luscious floral prints, contrasting panelling and sculptured detailing with unique fabrications. The hue has been cropping up time and time again in anything from true, juicy shades to red-tinged bricks and rusts.

Style Tips On Wearing Orange:

  • Don’t be afraid to mix with colour. Orange looks fab with yellow or similar hues for a striking look
  • Make a strong orange tone stand out with leather or black. Remember to break up the look with silver jewellery or contrasting accessories
  • Dress down with denim. Nothing adds a cool girl vibe more than teaming orange with  skinny leg denim
  • Add a feminine vibe with a sheer blouse, pussy-tie neckline or long-line tunic. This fabric and style adds a flattering and sophisticated touch
  • Add white! Think a crisp white blazer jackets for women over an orange blouse, what could be better?
  • Mix with prints. We love a floral printed orange top teamed with classic black pants or wet look denim
  • Start out small. Add an orange clutch, beaded necklace or cocktail ring for a vibrant touch that isn’t too out there
  • Add the jewels. Orange beaded earrings, a statement necklace or a stacked bangles are a great way to inject some flavour

Don’t be afraid to make a statement with this gorgeous colour that can be worn no matter what occasion. For a casual weekend look, team with your favourite pair of jeans, a white tank, long line knit and orange jewellery or accessories.  We also love wearing an orange floral infused print kimono or blouse like this one from FATE.

For the office, opt for a vibrant orange blouse teamed with a neutral coloured pencil skirt and court heels.

For night, try a figure hugging orange women’s dress or shift dress style. Add black sky high pumps and a matching patent clutch. You can easily vamp up a classic LBD with an orange clutch or jewels.
