ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK

Is orange the new black? It’s a claim as bold as the colour, but it’s one which came up in conversation time and time again on the catwalks last year. Now, with summer on the horizon and the clocks just days from going forwards, our suspicions that sun-drenched shades were set to be big news for SS17 have been confirmed, with orange rivalling pink as the shade of the season.

Mira Duma, Jenna Lyons, Olivia Palermo and Solange Knowles have been known to dabble in the tangerine trend, and no colour says summer quite like it. Bid adieu to the winter blues with a shot of colour, tapping into the trend courtesy of new season styles from ESCADA, Versace and Michael Kors.

If you’re headed to sun-soaked shores for the Easter holidays, make the most of newly sun-kissed skin in summer’s most energetic hue. Vibrant mandarin works amazingly well with tanned skin and darker skin tones, while those who linger on the paler end of the spectrum will look amazing in pastel shades. Contrary to popular belief, orange is one of fashion’s most universally flattering shades, but it you’re hesitant to live a life in technicolour dip a toe in the trend instead, pairing an orange shirt with a navy Ralph Lauren blazer or white jeans.
