When I was younger, I had an irrational fear of wearing orange. You see, I thought I would never be able to wear the color because I have such dark hair (a black and orange combo only meant one thing to me as a child…halloween). I’m glad I’m slowly letting orange back into my wardrobe because I mean, this could possibly be my favorite top and skirt. ever.

  1. I remember once hearing a stylist on a TV interview claim that orange is the one color that absolutely anyone can wear, that it works with every skin tone and hair color. I was a little doubtful at the time, but since then I have really noticed that it looks good on everyone. I think that many times people are just wary because it is so bold. But it looks great on you for certain, and it is steadily finding it’s way into my wardrobe.

  2. WOW! You are such a knockout, Rach! I love this look and I DEFINITELY can’t wait to see you style the top and skirt separately! You look amazeballs! Does amazeballs mean gorgeous? It does in my book. ;)

  3. I have always been a little nervous of orange, too. Totally get what you mean about dark hair and Halloween haha. I just bought an orange Proenza PS11 and I think it’s the perfect way for me to ease into the color. Love this look on you… Topshop makes the best clothes at such wonderful price points! Wear a ton of their pieces over on my blog. Great post!

  4. You look stunning in orange! I actually repinned a post of you in an orange dress from awhile back because it was so stunning! That look had a more sporty vibe. This look is so elegant and feminine. I love the navy clutch and nude pumps.
    I think I lot of people shy away from orange in general. So glad you changed your mind about this color!!
