According to colour theory, orange is supposed to be exuberant, energizing, invigorating, enthusiastic and joyous —so why, when it comes to wearing it, does it stop so many of us in our tracks?

Fun and flamboyant orange radiates warmth and energy. It is very versatile, and has a shade for all seasons as either an accent or background colour.

Here are my style tips on how to Wear Orange hues:

Orange on Neutral Grey

A transition that instantly brings some excitement to refined greys and beiges.

A great way to let the bold tones of your orange piece stand out without competing with any other colour, is to pair orange with neutrals. Avoid black unless headed out trick or treating, but take your pick from nearly all other nude shades. Your look will be clean and refined, but fun and punchy. Orange is great for adding a touch of cheerfulness to neutral dresses and lifts your spirits.

Pastel Popped

Not brave enough to go with the energized oranges in the above outfit, then try the pastel option.

Pastel oranges like peach and apricot are still perfect for bringing grey into summer, but a little less zesty.

Orange Purple Colour Clash

Orange and purple are a style favourite when it comes to contrasting combinations. Visually appealing, the two dynamic shades create a bold and chic look when paired together. The key here is to ensure you add a neutral piece to the look to keep it from being an overwhelming display of colours.

My favoutrite Orange Purple combo is a Salmon Coral Orange with Aubergine Purple. Coral / Salmon is flattering for all skin tones, and the deep rich tones of Aubergine give it just the right amount of contrast to ensure it’s not too striking.

Orange with Brilliant Blues

Ink Blue, Cobalt, Sapphire, Royal, Navy and nearly all shades of blue can be paired with a shade of orange. Blue is the perfect match for colour blocking with orange. Brilliant cobalt blue is great with zesty tangarine in the summer, while darker hues like Navy and burnt orange are perfect companions for the winter.

The Coast Floral Jacquard Whistan Dress with beautiful floral embroidery, has been a popular dress this season, and one I’ve had many customers ask me to arrange headwear for. For each of them I have paired with a Silver Hat and accessories, adding contrast back into the outfit, and keeping the yellow knocked back instead of “in your Face”

Super Energized with Fuschia Pink

Purple accessories liven up any outfit. If you’re not into purple clothes, make a statement, adding purple accessories to your neutral outfits for noticeable flair.

For Spring / Summer Racing Fashion wear with a harmonising colour - like the Fuchsia in the example below. The yellow can stand out, yet it harmonizes well with the outfit.
