Orange you glad you stopped by? Fruity jokes aside, oranges of every shade are the color trend of the season. From pink-orange corals to yellow-orange tangerines to red-orange tomatoes, orange is the color that will bring your outfit up-to-the-moment. Mix it up with an orange print maxi dress or skirt, a la Nicole Richie, or keep things bold with a solid blazer or blouse. Afraid to commit to this bold color? Ease your way in with an orange clutch or funky fresh shoe. Either (or both!) of these accessories will liven up your look in an instant.
1. Vince Low Back Silk Tee ($145)
The perfect pop! to a pair of jeans or shorts, this silky-smooth tee slides on over anything with ease. Dolman sleeves and a cropped length are as fresh as its color.
2. Diane von Furstenberg Reina Long Sleeve Dress ($298)
This DVF is so yummy, you’ll hate to take it off! A tropical white on orange print is perfect poolside or out for afternoon drinks. Pair this silk jersey mini with sky-high wedges for a sizzling summer look.
3. Tolani Maxi Skirt in Orange and Gray Mosaic Print ($173)
Orange goes boho. Tolani created this beautiful mosaic print and cut it into a long, flowing maxi. Cool enough to pair with a tank and flip flops, yet stunning enough to pair with heels and accessories, this silk skirt will take you to many an occasion this summer.

5. Marc by Marc Jacobs Platform Wedge Sandals ($395)
The exact designer color of these wedges is lobster, and we couldn’t think of a more appropriate name. These patent leather platforms were made for wooden boardwalks, sidewalk cafes, and long days by the beach. Pair with an orange-print maxi dress or skirt.
6. Rebecca Minkoff 5 Zip Clutch ($330)
The easiest way to add orange to your closet, a colorful handbag or clutch brightens up any outfit, even black or beige. This Rebecca Minkoff has the edge with zippers and leather tassels, gold hardware and metal feet. A detachable chain and leather strap means you can take orange from day to night in a snap.
