Why orange is the new black…

By  |  0 Comments

WITH 50 shades of grey being almost forgotten about, it seems to be orange which is adding some zing to this year’s autumn collections.
In fact, it works out to be much more shades than 50, after it was announced 201 shades were added to Pantone’s colour charts last week.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the citrus shade became a hit in this year’s runway shows as 60s-inspired psychedelic prints and brights make a comeback.
And, despite once being avoided for fear of brashness or clashing with other items, orange has become an unprecedented favourite over the last few seasons.

From peach melba to tangerine and carrot, this zesty hue is the perfect way to perk up your a/w wardrobe.
Take inspiration from the likes of designers Celine and Louis Vutton by embracing a pumpkin-full of comforting hues in exchange for safer shades such as black.
Zip-up jackets and coats and slender pants set the sporty mood on the H&M Studio catwalk for autumn/winter 2015, with futuristic shimmer from lurex knits and dresses in multiple citrus shades.
These were also paired along with functional pieces like hooded anoraks and zip-fronted jumpsuits.

H&M Studio is the brand’s limited-edition collection of key seasonal pieces, with its own dedicated design team.
The autumn/winter 2015 collection will be available in 200 stores, as well as online, from September 10.
Another look that’s proving popular is to mix orange with other sunshine shades such as canary yellow or lemon, although this is definitely one for the brave.
However, if it still feels a tad daunting, simply add a dose of the fruity-shade within your accessories such as a handbag or bold-coloured shoes.
The newfound fashion favourite can also be seen on the high street with the likes of Debenhams, Miss Selfridge and H&M jumping on the fruity bandwagon.
Whether it’s a rust-coloured knit or a victorian-style shift dress, this shade can be worn to suit anyone by adding instant warmth and a much-needed dose of Vitamin C.
If there’s a right time to pack a punch; it’s now. It also proves that orange really is the new black.
