Trend We Like: Orange

Add a little zing to your wardrobe this Autumn with the colour orange.

A key fashion trend for Autumn/Winter 2011 the citrus coloured hue featured prominently on the Burberry, Prada, Blugirl and Sonia Rykiel catwalks making it THE colour to be seen in this season.

Orange is renowned for its energising properties and feel good qualities and there are a number of colour variations currently available on the high street, with a piece of the trend available in every item possible. Pale apricots and warm corals sit easily beside juicy mandarins and deep rusts, ensuring all skin tones are catered for.

Style Tip:

Wear a neutral base of grey, black, navy or white using orange as your accent colour or try colour blocking with a bold primary. Alternatively, if orange is “just not your colour”,  update and personalise your look with punchy accessories.

This trend is set to continue into Spring with designers Amanda Wakeley, Matthew Williamson, Felder Felder and Cacharel all including pumpkin and flame coloured pieces in their Spring/Summer 2012 collections. Celeb wise Beyonce, Blake Lively, Samantha Cameron and Leighton Meester are just some of the names who have recently been spotted wearing orange.
