Orange You Glad?

Despite an uncharacteristic disinterest in the recent Fashion Weeks, I managed to browse a few shows at I quickly noticed a trend: the color orange was EVERYWHERE, from the runways to the streets.

Unfortunately, the color orange makes me look like a sallow, bloated, er…ORANGE, so I won’t be partaking in this particular trend. Will you?

    My friend is having her wedding next year and one of her colors is orange. She picked navy for the bridesmaids but as her maid of honor, we talked about me wearing an orange dress. I’m not a huge fan of orange, especially for a wedding. Seems very hard to make it look formal. I’ve been looking and the best I’ve seen are ones that are floral or textured in some way. If anyone has any suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

      I think you’re on the right track thinking texture–you definitely want something matte, not shiny (satin = NO!), in a simple, feminine cut similar to this Alexander Wang gown. But, you know, CHEAPER.

    Glad orange is in! It looks great on me. I will definitely be adding more orange.

      If anyone can make orange look good, you can!
