Okay let’s be real, black will always be the new black. Always. But every once in a while, its necessary to mix it up- bright colors are such a fun transition into spring and summer. One color that we are absolutely loving right now is a beautiful orange color- it is such a refreshing color to add to your wardrobe. It will truly brighten so many of your outfits. You can incorporate a bright color, such as orange, into your every day work attire or spice it up for a night out- we always love versatility!
This is why, for us, Orange is the new Black (Not to be confused with the very popular Netflix series or any creepy Halloween outfit inspiration). One thing we love orange is that there are many variations of the color – you are able to go with a very bright, almost neon or a more muted creamsicle color. Personally, we love a lighter color orange because its easier to incorporate into your wardrobe. Danielle pairs her orange blouse with denim jeans, but this color would go well with white jeans or even printed pants. When summer comes around, we love to mix brighter, unexpected colors. For example, we would love to pair this orange blouse with that turquoise skort Danielle wore in our Bold x Bright post a few months ago. When mixing bright colors together, make sure one color is more muted (ie. lighter pants & neon blouse or vice versa) so the look ends up looking unique rather than goofy and way over the top.
When wearing brighter colors, we like to wear simple jewelry and accessories because the color should be the focus of the outfit. Danielle pairs the orange with gold jewelry and neutral snakeskin heels. For a more casual outfit pair it with a pair of pointed ankle boots. If you’re not a hoops fan (what’s wrong with you…jkkk) go for gold studs and a few simple layered necklaces.
Because this blouse is flowy and layered it is important that the pants/ bottom you wear with this must be tighter and fitted- especially if you have a curvier figure. The tighter bottom piece anchors the outfit so you don’t feel like you’re swimming in your clothes or look boxy. You never want to lose your shape in an outfit- fit is so incredibly important!!
Layers on the wrist go with the layers in the blouse- mixing gold and color is always a great accessory addition.
Well that’s it everyone! Orange you glad we posted this?!? Teehee ignore our horrible jokes and enjoy the weekend 🙂
