Orange is the New Yellow

Ok, so that title didn't make a ton of sense, but just as we saw yellow as a color pop all winter, orange is the color pop for spring. will see head to toe orange in the fashion magazines and on the runways, but honestly, for pictures you might want to stay away from a full color wash.  You don't want to look back on your pictures and remind yourself of a walking piece of fruit.  With that in mind, there are some fun ways to incorporate orange into your senior pictures that won't leave you with that hungry feeling later....

Love the look of this constructed orange blazer combined with the unstructured, ripped jeans. I agree with the very neutral shirt and sandals.  This makes the orange pop without taking over.

For a similar but "opposite" look, cover a bright orange shirt or sweater with a black jacket and jeans.  Personally I love the black leather skinny pants.  They make this look.  But if the thought of skinny leather causes you to need to pop some valium, grab some black jeans instead.  Either way, the orange makes a statement without taking over.

Orange Peel

Orange is always great when used in your accessories.  I particularly like it with black and white.  Just go with a deeper shade of orange so that you don't look like a bee - and make sure to include plenty of white so you don't look like you are trying on a costume for your next Halloween party :-)

black and white, orange, love it :)

Orange with Royal Blue is a fabulous combination - but be sure to keep the orange in the accessories and just very small punches of color.  Too much orange with bright blue will require your friends to pull out the sunglass to spare their eyes.  Add just a punch and you can really make a statement.

Lovely Orange Tote

So if you really, really, really want to go head to toe orange, then do yourself a HUGE favor.  Go for a very light, almost pastel shade of orange.  Choose an unstructured dress that flows when you move, and go for very neutral shoes and accessories.  You can achieve a romantic look that doesn't send your boyfriend to the salad bar after your date....

If you love the color orange and have an idea for an outfit, send it to me.  I would love to help you style it for your senior pictures!

Until next time,
