When it comes to buying forever pieces, it’s easy – and sensible – to opt for neutral colours that won’t date. But adding a few bold pieces can have a transformative effect on your wardrobe, especially in the summer. This season, it’s all about orange, from zesty tangerine to softer, saffron tones. This is how to wear it in a timeless, chic way.
Keep it classic. While orange can look great when paired with bold colours like bright pink or blue, wearing it with black or white is a more understated, timeless look.
Mix your metals. Orange works well with both gold and silver jewellery, so don’t be afraid to wear both.
Find the right shade and tone for you – darker skin can pull off the brighter end of the scale – and work with it.
Opt for simple, timeless accessories. Orange is the star of the show, so think of your accessories as the support act.
Take it into tailoring. For summer, a colourful tailored trouser with a crisp white shirt is a chic option for the office.
Go for pared-back designs. Think streamlined silhouettes and minimal detailing.
