STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Orange Obsessions

Summer is drifting away before our very eyes, so put down the remote and round up the squad. Instead of envying the cast of Orange Is the New Black and their killer strut, why not trigger your own inner she beast and be bold with your wardrobe?

Stimulating to say the least, dazzle your summer fling in a blood orange dress. Head to toe confidence will naturally exude from your avant-garde choice, leaving your peers breathless and no one will be able to tear their eyes away from you. Though it lacks subtlety, orange can be very versatile when it comes to summer events. You can mix in a relaxed orange top for a sassy trip to the mall or rock an orange frock to liven up a formal event. If you’re feeling a bit awkward about branching out of your usual black and white basic wardrobe, orange is a great color for special events like town fairs or festivals. Posing as a chic traffic cone, your friends will always be able to spot you in a crowd.

Fierce and feisty, this Fashionista dresses for a night out in a bright orange midi dress. Due to the length and sack-like shape of the dress, she wears a pair of nude peep toe slingbacks to accentuate the length of her legs. Though this dress could be worn on its own, this Fashionista defines bold elegance by pairing it with a necklace made of periwinkle gems. She channels Egyptian royalty with three playful gold bangles, a delicate chamsa bracelet and a gold ring. While this Fashionista centers her outfit around her orange dress, minor splashes of orange can go a long way in making a summer statement.
