SnS 7 Day Colour Challenge Day 5: Orange

So, how you feel about orange? Is it a colour you love but don’t wear? Love and wear confidently? Or, are you not really sure about it?

Orange isn’t just plain old fruit bowl orange. It comes in a range of shades – neon orange, peach, tangerine through to the pinky orange shades of coral. I am a big fan of the pinkier shades in summer but I do love a bold tangerine to break up blacks and greys in the colder months.

Despite this, I confess I don’t have a lot of orange in my wardrobe as other colours suit me more.

However, this summer I decided to find some ways to wear orange that worked for me. I found that pairing it with pink (love that colour block combo) or blue looked fab and introduced some new colour into my wardrobe which is currently dominated with blue, green and pink.

Again, similar to yellow, I don’t think you need a lot of orange to make a great statement. I particularly love orange with denim and white and a pop of orange seriously looks the business with a classic black and white combo. This outfit by my friend and blogging buddy Kimba Likes is a case in point. How fab does she look?
