One of the punchiest and hottest hues for spring is coral’s close cousin, orange. While all of the zesty colors are definitely in for summer (think grapefruit pink, lemon yellow, lime green…) orange has been popping up everywhere.
Unlike coral however, this can be one tricky shade to pull off, and while it tends to look best on chocolate or porcelain skin tones where the color can really pop, with a little help anyone can pull it off.
For warm skin tones, look for yellow based oranges such as the dress on the far left.
For cool skin tones, try a red or blue based orange, such as the dress in the middle.

And as always, accessories are a great option. I still fondly remember an orange clutch that I took everywhere last summer (and later went AWOL at a little cafe in August. Sigh.) hopefully I’ll find a suitable replacement this season.
And just a personal preference, stay away from black. There’s no need to bring on the Halloween references. Instead pair with neutrals (orange and dove grey look stunning together) or go bold with poppy brights.
