Orange was one of the biggest colour trends on the SS13 catwalks, with designers like Helmut Lang, J Mendel and Carolina Herrera sending models out in head-to-toe tangerine, and it’s a colour I’m really loving at the moment! Although I’m not seeing many other signs of summer here in Manchester, the highstreet is full of summery shades, from burnt orange to carrot to apricot and everything in between Below are a few of my favourite picks from Topshop:
Crepe Tee Shift Dress, £42 | Cropped Beaded Jacket, £95 | Orange Calf Skater Skirt, £35 | Strappy Cami Top, £18 | Khan Animal Slippers, £58 | Round Preppy Sunglasses, £16 | Tangerine Scallop Bikini Top, £18, and Pants, £12
Orange is a colour that I think most pale-skinned red-heads would leave to the darker skinned brunettes and blondes, but (to either my credit or my detriment) that won’t stop me! I’m particularly tempted to get my hands on the Crepe Shift Dress pictured above, and I recently fell in love with the Calf Skater Skirt after wearing it on a photoshoot. During my pursuit of all things orange, I found an amazing Givenchy Antigona style bag on eBay (buy here, pictured below) for a bargain £11.68 which I quickly snapped up – a great place to start if you’re not quite ready to wear the trend head-to-toe.
