Orange is the new black

No, we are not talking about the Netflix tv series that has been keeping thousands of people in front of a screen for the last two years. But the series title might have been prophetic: orange is in fact the most popular colour on the catwalks at the moment, and designers have explored each and every style. Also on the street we have seen a new dawn rising on everyday outfits, and it’s of course a dawn shining of orange light.

For a long time orange has been envisioned as a difficult colour. It represents optimism and wisdom, the East it’s a lucky colour and is the symbol of balance and inner peace: that’s why the Buddhist monks traditionally wear it. On one hand its bold and sunny vibes make the perfect statement for happiness and good mood, on the other hand this powerful impact makes it difficult to match it with other colours, and the more conservative looks will shy away from including it in an outfit. Try to match orange with natural colours of leather in order to soften it’s bright vibe. Or you can match it with black in order to create a very contemporary and urban look. Go ahead with orange and white or all the most neutral nuances of beige and sand if you are looking for a casual and fresh style. Good thing is: there is no wrong season to sport some orange in your clothes. During the winter you can dare with bold matches: try orange accessories in deep blue in order to bring some light on a formal look, or match it with all autumn shades from dark green to purple to brighten the season while always looking classy. The last tip is to choose the shade of orange that fits best to your natural colours. For brunettes with warm skin tone will love to wear also the brightest version of orange, while blonde and fair types with pale skins should choose more desaturated nuances. If you are planning to introduce a hint of good mood and light in your outfit there is no better moment than now: an orange touch it’s the perfect fit in every moment of the day, and a perfect allay to keep the gloomy season away.
