You don’t need to buy a bunch of new clothes to tap into the trend for bright colours. If you’re looking to spruce up your wardrobe, try orange accessories for a quick fix of cheerful hues.
It’s all too easy to fall into the trap of wearing dark hues day in, day out, especially when it comes to getting dressed for work (well, it’s one less thing to think about in the morning, right?). Coax yourself away from blacks, greys and dark blues by zesting them up with a little bit of colour. Adding accessories in orange to your day-to-day wardrobe is a foolproof way to inject some personality into your look, and luckily, the styling possibilities are endless. The next time you pull out a navy coat, try wearing it differently by offsetting it with a bright orange hat or bag. If you’re still not convinced, you could go even more subtle by incorporating a watch with a slim orange strap for a small but punchy touch of colour.
If your attitude to dressing is ‘go hard or go home’, see an orange accessory as another powerful tool in your style arsenal. For a boundary-pushing combination, try wearing a rich purple outfit with accessories in orange. To take an easier route, just wear a pair of lilac trousers with a white T-shirt. Style-wise, it’s a bit of a wild card, but you’re sure to win approval on Instagram for such a larger-than-life pairing. If it’s just a quick pop of colour you’re looking for, throw on an orange scarf over a lightweight jacket - pick one in a sandy hue to really bring out those vivid tones.
