The fashion world is buzzing with orange and I’ve got the bug as well! I can hardly believe it, but yesterday I bought a top AND trousers in orange! And a bright version at that. I’m hoping to show it to you next week from a surprise location. But what to wear it with? I headed for some color combination inspiration to colourlovers.com. It’s a great site where you can create your own color combinations or get inspired by those of others. Here is what I found.
The versatility of orange
Can you believe that orange looks so good with so many colors. It’s actually proving to be quite a versatile color. I have seen orange in the shops in all kinds of shade from very bright to more demure colors, so you can just pick the color orange that suits your complexion and temperament best and mix and match with all these other fine colors. You don’t even have to buy a garment in this color. Just adding a scarf or a bag will already give you that orange flavor and will add some flair to your outfit.
Let’s take one color combination to the test
Although I love them all, I picked Storming Psychedialia as the inspiration for some outfits that I created at Polyvore. In this set orange is only visible in a subtle way and is mainly added as a pop color. Have a look at what you can achieve with these colors! Very stylish and certainly not boring! You can mix and match and add more orange if you like to all these outfits.

I would love to see the outfits that you can come up with. If you go to polyvore and create some outfits, be sure to share them with me!
