Orange ya glad this post is about the colour orange? Whether it’s pumpkin or tangerine-toned pieces, this spring we’re saying yes to orange and updating our wardrobes with a few key pieces.
It may be one of the most abrasive hues on the colour wheel that reminds us of pylons, safety vests, and the Dutch (it’s their country’s colour of choice), but orange also looks mighty fine with a tan and is a fun colour to bring into the mix. It’s time for a tangerine dream, my friends.
Zara Leather Sandals. Coloured sandals are always an excellent jumping-off point for trends. They subtly bring the new tone into your wardrobe and add more interesting details to every outfit. Plus you need sandals in the summer, so investing in affordable pairs in a variety of colours is the way to go. $80, Zara.
Topshop Orange Ottoman Skater Skirt. The flop on this skirt is everything. The weighted, textured material makes it a little bit more special, and because it has skater in the title I’m envisioning pairing this skirt with a pair of white sneakers and a boyfriend’s skateboard (for looks, not for skating). That is if my boyfriend wasn’t imaginary and had a skateboard…you get the picture. $45, Topshop.
Forever 21 Cat-Eye Sunglasses. Seven dollar sunglasses? Sign me up! Statement sunglasses are so major for spring it’s kind of hard to handle. The combination of the cat-eye with the bright coral shade of frames screams ready for summer. $7, Forever 21.
Urban Renewal Dip-Dyed Denim Shirt. If you haven’t realized, we love denim (and everything that denim has to offer my closet, which is a lot). This tri-toned button-up is the perfect combination of true denim colours plus a faded orange. When it’s finally hot enough outside to forego the spring jacket, you could sling this around your waist for the days and wear it all night long once it has cooled off. $54, Urban Outfitters.
French Connection Fit and Flare Dress. This dress is ideal for the summertime. The neckline is tasteful, and the flare on the skirt will let your legs feel a nice summer breeze. The additional cut-out just adds to the cuteness of the look and it will be an eye-catcher with the bright orange tone. $208, ASOS.
TNA Biome Sweater. For the days you’re feeling super loungey or are at a friends cottage, this sweater is the perfect layering piece. Paired with shorts, jeans, or even overtop of flared dresses (like the one above), it will add a little bit of warmth. $55, Aritzia.
Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Soapy Suds Bodywash. I get that orange isn’t for everyone (real talk: it’s one of my least favourite colours). If you fall into that category, try smelling like a nice Florida Orange in the springtime. $18, Sephora.
H&M Shoulder Bag. We’re all about cheap accessories that are on trend and can be used and abused until the season ends. You can add this coral purse to your closet rotation and not feel depressed when the summer destroys the bag with all the fun times you’re having. And if you’re good with your things and nothing ever gets ruined, 10 points to you! $18, H&M.
