Orange is the new black | Wear orange - The New Black | Travelshopa

The Spring/Summer 2014 fashion season continues its love affair with the colour orange. The fiery yet sophisticated hue has taken the runways by storm, even sparking a beauty trend in the orange lip. Rewind to a month back, when we released a report on the Top 10 Pantone Colours for Spring 2014 that shone a spotlight on Celosia Orange. Sure enough, the spontaneous and citrusy tint has been all the rage as designers and street style stars alike bask in its warmth. Travelshopa’s very own queen bee, Renee Lodens, also made an appearance in Elle’s March issue (The Buzz, p.30) with her take on the colour trend.

More reasons to love orange? It‘s a gorgeous spring to summer bright that ties in perfectly with our sunny weather and shows off seasonal tans with extra oomph. Another great thing about orange is that it’s perched nicely in the middle of the yellow- red spectrum, giving you a massive playground of warm to cool hues to experiment with. Depending on the colour of your complexion, different shades of orange will flatter in different ways. As a general rule, fair complexions should go for a lighter peachy orange whereas darker complexions would be most well complemented by a bright or deep orange that skews towards red. Go the extra mile and accessorise with gold and jewelled pieces in complementary colours to bring out orange’s dazzling shine.
