Tango Summer 09

March 19, 2009

Yes that’s right, orange is going to be a big colour this summer. No, I don’t mean fake tan or fruit. I mean the colour orange as in fabric, dye or maybe even a colouring pencil? ORANGE.

So you may be wondering, just how have I come to this decision? Well, that’s simple. By studying summer 09’s designer catwalks I accumulated an orange vision, designers such as Luella, Betty Jackson, Chloe, Marni and House of Holland all brought out their summery day-glow oranges, all in different hues and uses.

Luella’s Queen-y inspired peaches, or ‘corals’ as the fashion magazines seem to be labelling it, I particularly favour. Contrasting with lilacs, pinks and purples, Luella shows us how to wear orange with other bright colours as well as a block colour with a dash of 50’s style and class, as well as Luella’s trade mark, wonderful eccentricity.

Other fashion houses have used orange as both a main, block colour in their outfits, but also as an accent colour through the use of orange accessories and such. Orange is quite a hard colour to wear, so for those of you who are orange shy, stick with the more subtle orange accessories! I think I’m going to try and go for a bit of both 😀
