Juicy Orange

Some are saying that orange is THE color of the year. To be honest, I am not so sure about that but it is a fact that looking by SS 12 runways there is hardly a way to imagine a wardrobe without at least one orange piece. From the runways I was inspired by these three dresses but runways are easy, the challenge will be to wear this citrus color in real life.

Here are the pieces I have hand-picked, as you will see some are realistic and affordable while others are dreams and inspirations (at least for me). In the end I was really inspired, which is why you will find so many pieces!

Calvin Klein dress (, J Crew trousers, Marc by Marc Jacobs iPad case, Kain label tank (all,   Sandro dress and blazer (, OPI atomic orange, Kenneth Jay Lane ring (, Castaner espadrilles (on sale,

Miss Selfridge Top and skirt (, Cimarron jeans (, Chanel May nail polish and MAC Morange lipstick, Topshop sweater and blazer (, Cambridge cracked orange satchel (, Asos enamel earrings (, Michael Michael Korrs ballet flats (

I'm still not sure that I will fall for orange but if that's the case, I bet it's going to be for an orange blazer. I see it already paired with a dark blue skinny jeans and a white silk blouse... In the meantime I'll be wearing my favorite orange nail polishes, OPI's atomic orange and Chanel's June to easily be right on trend!

How about you, will you wear orange? What's your favorite piece?

  4. I love the long dress, and the striped top makes me want to wear stripes again : )

  5. The long dress is my FAVORITE, the problem is the price and probably the fit (I haven't tried it but I'm not sure it looks good on anyone shorter than 1,80 m which is my case)!
