Of all the summer-friendly colors, orange is my favorite. It looks good against every complexion, it gives the skin a sun-kissed glow and it packs a vibrant punch. It’s no wonder orange is the go-to hue among style stars like Solange Knowles, Lupita Nyong’o and Selena Gomez.
Orange is a must-have in your beauty and fashion arsenal, especially during the warmer months. Whether you add a pop of tangy color with your lipstick or rock a full jumpsuit in the citrus hue, there are so many ways to wear orange this season. Check out my top 10 ways to incorporate orange into your summer wardrobe.
1. An Orange Dress
Go for the bold in a sleek orange dress like Lupita Nyong'o. Just be sure to keep the accessories neutral. Lupita's leopard shoes do the trick.
2. Orange Lipstick
Add a pop of color to a dark summer look with bright orange lipstick. Take a cue from Solange, and keep the rest of your makeup subtle.
3. Orange Pumps
Orange pumps are the perfect way to jazz up a gray and black ensemble. You can even add in orange lipstick for an added jolt of color.
4. Orange Blush
Orange blush like Kerry Washington's will give your skin that coveted sun-kissed glow. Nude lipstick is the perfect compliment.
5. Orange Skirt
Want a bolder look? Try an orange skirt that can be paired with a printed or neutral crop top. Nude pumps bring the look together.
6. Orange Tips
Nothing screams summer like orange nail polish. Khloe Kardashian's nails compliment her colorful Clover Canyon dress perfectly.
7. Orange Crop Top
Paired with black pants and pumps, Mel B.'s orange crop top makes her look come alive.
8. Orange Clutch
An easy way to add some spice to a little black dress? Throw on an orange clutch like Jordin Sparks.
9. Orange Jumpsuit
Meagan Good demonstrates the perfect way to make an orange jumpsuit not look like a jail uniform: a ruffled neckline, gold belt and muted color. Perfection.
10. Orange Suit
If you don't mind being the brightest person in the room, an orange suit like Laura Govan's is sassy, stylish and guarantees all eyes will be on you.
