Bright orange often reminds me of fall — pumpkins, hunter jackets, our president-elect. But seriously, I can’t quite get over the fact that bright orange is one of the hottest spring color trends for 2017. I noticed orange popping up everywhere lately.
I noticed orange popping up everywhere lately. Lucky for me, I already own two orange dresses. One I got on sale last fall, and the other I’ve had for about a decade. Both of them belt at the waist (to accentuate my hourglass shape) and have floaty sleeves and a slight a-line skirt.
Orange is a tricky color. It looks best on people with warm skin tones. I have an olive complexion, so orange and colors close to orange (yellow, red) work well on me. People with warm skin tones can definitely pull off the spring color trends, like bright orange. Feel free to wear it as a whole outfit, like this jumpsuit, or even an orange coat (how cute is this one?!) Not sure what your complexion is? I found this article really helpful.
If you have a cooler complexion, with blue undertones to your skin, orange may not be the best choice for you. I would opt for pops of orange, especially in your accessories. There are so many great shoes, bags, and jewelry with touches of orange. Adding orange in accessories is a great way to try out the trend without wearing something that’s not going to be as flattering on you.
