It was all over the runway just a few short weeks ago at NYFW 2012. Orange. The color of October as I like to think of it, and apparently the color of the runway & red carpet (did anyone catch all of the bright hues on the Emmy's?) As we Mark the first of the month today my mind can't help but think orange orange orange! From Pumpkins to candy to awful Halloween decor to thanksgiving bliss, orange IS the color of the season. So I say (along with what seems to be every other designer on the planet this year) Why not, embrace it?
Maybe you think Orange isn't quite the hue for you. Maybe your significant other can't stand the site of it during football season. (the only time of the year some men care what color another man is wearing), or maybe you just hesitate in thoughts of fearing you'll look like a traffic cone. All reasonable doubts my friends, but that's why I'm here. To show you us "regular" gals CAN pull off each year's runway trends without a hitch.

Orange Skinny Jeans
Heavy Metal Belt in Orange
Tobi Salmon Scarf $16 Charlotte Russe Orange Blazer $25
It's much more practical for the day to day to wear one key colored piece than to try to create an entire ensemble off the runway look. Take the Metal Belt for example and let it pop out over an all black ensemble. Or an orange blouse with a khaki trouser for a great Autumn Work Day outfit. Not feeling particularly all over bright? Just add a scarf like this light orange pick from Tobi. Talk about easy peasy ladies and gents! Hopefully by now I have you convinced... it's time to embrace the Orange! Happy October 1st Lovelies. Go Shine.
Are you Embracing the Orange this Season? Or are you too afraid to try?
I'd LOVE to hear why or why not!
