Who knew that the creators of the Netflix series, “Orange is the New Black,” were so in touch with fashion! As New York Fashion Week wrapped up, it was clear that orange would be the color leading the season. This vibrant shade was seen in every fashion incarnation on the Spring 2014 runways, incorporated into bags, dresses, blazers and makeup looks. Work this eye-catching hue into our wardrobe in an affordable way while still staying chic.
This ultra-chic tee dress (topshop.com) is perfect for making a statement in both casual and formal settings. Dress it up for the office with a blazer and closed-toe pumps, or dress it down for a Saturday lunch date with strapped sandals and simple accessories.
This Marc Jacobs Lip Gel (marcjacobs.com) is the next level of lipsticks. It provides bold, pigmented color while giving moisture. The key to pulling off a bold lip color is to mute the rest of the face. When wearing this lush orange shade, keep the rest of the makeup simple.
What girl doesn’t love an amazing statement bag? This bag (zara.com) is not only amazingly convenient with both handle and shoulder straps, it’s also amazingly affordable for only $40. Make this your go-to bag for the season.
This military style blazer (oasap.com) is the perfect combination of strength and femininity in fashion. The bold gold embellishments are complimented to perfection by this sleek, single button design. Pair this with a solid pencil skirt and stiletto pumps to let it shine as your ensemble statement piece.
