Burning Up


There’s a new color floating around the fashion sphere and its one I feel has been neglected for far too long. Orange! Well not just any orange, more specifically burnt orange! While I generally associate this shade of orange with autumn colors, I have to say it’s a nice change from the normal summer colors we usually see. Not to say that I’m getting tired of the bright and cheery summer colors. In fact when worn the right way, I’m finding the shade to be pretty bright and cheery in itself! For his resort collection Jason Wu used the shade as an accent to give a simple outfit some edge. Both Mary-Kate Olsen and Diane Kruger sported the hue at the CFDA’s. (They were both on the best dressed list too!) If you’re apprehensive about the color, try OPI’s “On the Same Paige” and give it a test drive. As someone who generally wears black during all seasons I think this orange might just have what it takes to turn me onto color. Maybe…
