My Orange Obsession

May 26, 2011 • Fashion Blog

Looking to add some sizzle to your style? Orange, the “it” color for spring/summer, was a huge hit on the runway and in the beauty industry. Don’t be terrified of this tangy hue; it’s both wearable and flattering for all skin tones. From coral to tangerine, be bold for summer; adorn yourself in orange!

1. Tanks are essential for scorching summer days. I love the silky material and layers of ruffles on this top! Paired with white jeans and a metallic clutch, this look is quintessential summer chic.
