Ive been dying to get some more orange into my wardrobe, and I’m not talking about “burnt orange or copper,” I’m talking about bright orange. I ordered this adorable Scallop Edge Crop + Trouser Co-ord from Boohoo at the beginning of summer, but when I tried it on, I looked like I just escaped from prison. Yeah, I guess prison jumpsuits are bright orange, however, I didn’t foresee that the color orange would immediately make me think of jail attire. I didn’t want to give up, though. Orange was the color of the summer, and I knew I could make it work if I found the right fit, hue, and style of clothing.
Then, I landed upon this Orange Frill Hem Midi Skirt from PrettyLittleThing, and it was perfect! I’ve been gravitating toward ruffles this summer, too. I love the feminine and sexy edge it brings to garments, so I have been trying to work more frills into my wardrobe. Now, I wanted to learn from my last mistake of ordering an entirely orange outfit, so I went ahead and paired the skirt with this Stripe Strappy Crop Top, which is also from PrettyLittleThing. I really love this look, and I think it satisfies my craving for the color orange without over doing it. Anyone else craving this hue?
