Wear Me: Orange Is The New Black

Hyuck hyuck.

I had to.

Honestly though, aside from my unattractive adoration for all black everything, I don’t mind stirring things up with a pop of color in my otherwise neutral wardrobe. I find that lately I’ve been adding one item, like a pair of shoes, or an insanely bright and eyecatching statement piece, to my outfits. Could be because it’s summer, could be because I have too many people mistaking me for Wednesday Adams. Not sure.

Anyway, orange is the “it” shade this season. Actually, I shouldn’t say this season, I should say right now. At this moment. Either way, it’s always nice to have a little bit of color in your wardrobe, whether its a pair of electric blue pumps, a neon pink clutch, a tangerine statement necklace, or a orange V neck tee. Pretty much anything goes as long as you don’t over do it. But that’s the fundamental rule for pretty much any style. Oh, and I know that many girls who aren’t perma-tanned or blessed with a olive skin tone usually stay away from shades like yellow and orange but a little pop isn’t going to make you look like a traffic cone. Earthier and peachy tones are definitely colors you can work with. And with those darker skinned, golden toned, faux tanned ladies – neons and brighter tones really accentuate your skin color. And you know, a prison jumpsuit could be cute too. Just depends on how you style it…
