2012 Fashion Trends: Orange Everything

orange fashion

This Spring, you’re all going to be wearing orange. No, you will be: the Fashion Gods have deemed it to be so, and you’ll all just have to go along with it, or you won’t get to talk about being a fashionista and “bang on trend”. That would be terrible, wouldn’t it?

OK, we just: you won’t ACTUALLY have to wear orange if you don’t want to. There will be a fair bit of it around, however, with everything from jeans and dresses, to sunglasses and shoes getting a touch of the “Tango” about it.

What do you think of this trend? There’s no doubt that orange isn’t the easiest colour in the world to wear: not everyone can pull it off, although those who can, often look amazing in it.

Which side are you on? Are you for or against the orange revolution?

    I used to think I couldn’t wear orange, and then I decided I didn’t care. It’s such a cheerful color, and wearing it makes me happy, so I think orange being around will be fun. I also think there is probably a shade of orange that looks good on everyone, they just have to want to find it.

    I like orange but you have to make sure you style it in an outfit correctly. You can have too much of a good thing.

    I love orange! It really adds pop to any outfit. But you definitely need to limit it to one or two pieces.

    Orange is my least favourite colour – in any orange shade. I wouldn`t wear it no matter how fashionable it was

    Orange is great on redheads. And it complements turquoise/teal, my other favourite colours.

    Orange and yellow are the worst colors ever. I don’t care how much someone says I look good in it, I don’t care if it’s THE IN COLOR of spring. I despise both colors, and the color washing me out doesn’t do it any favors. I’ll sticks with my blues, greens, purples, and reds, thanks.

    I have no orange clothes yet but I imagine I will by the time summer reaches Yorkshire (could be a while…). I love all kinds of bright colours, even though they probably wash out my pale complexion.

    I wanted to get the black patent Tory Burch Eddie flats this Spring. The girls in the Tory Burch boutique didn’t have them in black but brought out the orange patent ones for me to try. The sales girls loved them on me. Who wouldn’t love to see a gay guy like me wearing them, haha. I didn’t get the orange ones but I did eventually get these black ones http://www.flickr.com/photos/39715038@N00/6951267230/in/photostream
