Orange is a bright, warm, beautiful color and yet it seems to intimidate most of us when it comes to wearing it. If you’ve been ignoring that orange dress at the back of your wardrobe, face your fears and pull it out because we’re going to show you the best ways to style an orange dress for summer.
Orange Wrap Mini Dress
This dress is cool and casual and is the perfect tone of orange for pairing with its sister colour – yellow. Do not be afraid to match these two colours, they compliment each other perfectly and give off immaculate summer vibes.
Pair this dress with woven flat sandals, a structured yellow bag, layered gold necklaces and twisted hoop earrings. This look is playful, casual and cool.
Mini Slip Dress
This dress is adorable, unique and perfectly captures that dreamy summer feeling. Bring out the blue tones of the dress by wearing pale blue strappy heels and a matching shoulder bag. Pair with a barely-there gold chain necklace and butterfly themed hoop earrings to complete the look.
Turn this simple tangerine midi dress into a seventies summer look in three small steps. Step one: add gold platform shoes. Step two: place your belongings into an orange clutch bag. Finally, step three: accessorize with a chunky gold bracelet and gold hoop earrings.
Ta-daa! A summer look straight from the seventies.
Cut-Out Mini Dress
Pairing black and orange together can draw a fine line on seeming like you’re three months early for Halloween – if you don’t do it right. Avoid prematurely entering spooky season by wearing colourful beaded jewellery alongside black platform sandals and a black tote bag (p.s.a. this is for carrying summer items like sunscreen, not collecting candy).
Orange Maxi Dress
This pale orange (aka peach) maxi dress is perfect for those extremely hot days where you don’t want anything touching your skin, its so floaty that you might even forget it’s there. However, this is not an excuse not to style it. Wear white flip-flop sandals alongside a structured white bag. Decorate your neck with a sun themed layered necklace and treat your ears to matching earrings. You are now beach ready.
Now that we’ve shown you the best ways to style an orange dress for summer, go and pull that old dress out of your wardrobe, or buy a new one! We promise you won’t regret it.
