Orange is the New Black AW17

Alice🙋🏽 & Olivia 🙋 

Not since the Georgian era has orange been in fashion….that is, until now. Once feared by the fashion elite for its clashing capabilities and criminal connotations, it has slowly populated into one of the hottest shades this Summer. Why? From Equipment’s timeless, relaxed, androgynous silhouettes, to Rixo’s floaty maxi dress and Anthropologie’s structured culotte jumpsuits, this colour is for everyone and for any occasion.  We love all things orange,  just make sure you clash your colours this season for full on tangerine dreaminess.

Alice’s Picks

I am a little obsessed with orange – the bright vibrant variety (I’m not that fussed by pale apricots or peach), the richer and brighter the better.  Below are some orange things I would very much like now please 😍🍊.

I love this jumpsuit, I’m sadly not really the right shape to pull it off, but if you are, definitely pair it with some fun heels, preferably in a fuchsia colour 💗.

Anthropologie Mia Sleeveless Jumpsuit £128

Orange nails are super fun, and I am really enjoying Nailberry’s bright hue superbly named Decadence.

Nailberry Varnish Decadence £14.50

I very recently discovered John + Pearl’s jewellery and am a big fan, they have lots of brightly coloured offerings and a lovely little shop just to he righthand side of Selfridges.

John + Pearl Comet Neon Orange bracelet £38.00

Ok I know it’s not really orange – but it is called ‘Orange’ – Sarah & Sorrentino do amazing patterns on beautifully designed swimwear, I really love this one.

Sarah & Sorrentino Orange Dala Swimsuit £60

So beautiful, I love the shape and colour contrasts of this leather handbag.

Tinct Bags  Aragosta Cross Body  £295

And I am still completely obsessed with Bendita Luz’s everything, their lip balm just smells so citrusy and so good.

British brand Jilla do great sportswear – recommended to me by The Natural Swede 🙂 and I love this pinky/orange colourway of this one (it’s more orange in real life).

Jilla Space Dye Impact Sports Bra in Coral £12.50

And lastly these bowls. I would like them very much. (I am in the process of moving house and have my eye on them for when the move is complete…).
