s the fog lifts bringing promises of sunny days ahead, we crave for a colour that is bright and luscious, like a tangy popsicle or freshly squeezed juice. Here’s bringing you a mouthwatering colour of the month – juicy orange.
A good alternative for the popular reds and magentas, orange is on the celeb radar now. Whether on Karlie Kloss and Katrina Kaif’s bodycons, or on Twinkle Khanna’s easy shift, this colour ensures that all eyes are on you. And it is as versatile as it can get. Madhuri Dixit took the traditional route and wore it on an anarkali that combined the colour with beige and gold, while Solange Knowles went the daring way and wore a bright cobalt coat over a head-to-toe orange look. What can we say, we love them both!
And neither are the boys far behind. Whether you want to wear it like Ranveer Singh’s quirky Dior oxfords, or like Will Smith’s simple sweater, this juicy hue is a sure shot attention grabber.
Orange has been making its presence felt on the spring summer and pre fall runways, whether in solid top to bottom looks of Pankaj and Nidhi, DKNY and Max Mara, or colour blocked with navy, as seen at Manish Malhotra and Gucci who prove that navy is orange’s best friend.
Although bright and saturated, orange is not a very difficult colour to wear. An orange t-shirt is your must-have weekend wear. You can play safe and wear it with blue denims, or go loud and cheerful with turquoise or yellow shorts. Neutrals like white and grey make the colour pop, while beiges and brown tone it down. So take your pick and pair it according to your mood.
Accessories are also a cool way to inject some colour into your outfits, a sporty orange watch, an orange clutch or footwear can give a refreshing new look to a monochrome ensemble. And whether you have pale or sun-kissed skin, the orange lipstick is a trend you absolutely must try this summer.
So, orange-you excited about this fruity hue knocking on your door?
