I thought ColorPlay should start having some photo inspiration… Color is one of the fiercest points of photographs; the absence of it, the over-saturation, the sepia tones, the combinations… They all play an emotional part in photographs, so why shouldn’t they affect our emotional output as well?
We’re inching, stretching, aching, dreaming… of spring. The best way to do it, in my opinion, is to embody spring – not in a creepy existential way, but y’know… Encourage the sun to come out and play by wearing some of its [scientifically proven] favorite colors.
Orange is definitely a contender for the season’s favorite – its warm tones in combonation with its vibrant output make it the epitome of summer embodied.
ModCloth understands what I mean. They’ve got tons of dresses in all kinds of great sunny colors, but their selection of orange- and white-based dresses is quite impressive.
Color By Number Dress
Looooove the colors and the cut of this dress. It’s loud, but it could be tempered.
Hedy Lamarr Dress
It looks a bit “Little House on the Prarie”, but it all depends on what goes (or doesn’t go…) underneath.
If you’re looking for a little more versatility (which an orange, black and white dress – admittedly – may not give you…), skirts are a perfect way to allow you to wear a simple ribbed tank, but still bring some flare to your outfit.
Triton by Tufi Duek ‘Alma’ Skirt
ModCloth Henna Skirt
Or, if you only need a POP of orange to brighten your day, shoes and bags are an awesome way to go. (Orange goes with more colors than you think… Just consider it an excited version of brown!)
Luichiny Women’s Soren Sandal
Both sandals because, duh, summer doesn’t respond to orange galoshes.
Madison Kristin Multi Handle Bag
Or, if you just want something bright to throw over a pair of jeans and sandals, these tops are sure to be your sunny weather friends.
Old Navy Crochet-Trim Babydoll
Chico’s Uroya Necklace
Reason why this qualifies as a shirt (DO NOT WEAR ALONE.): Put necklace over aforementioned ribbed tank or basic tee. Go on about your business. (i.e. the addition of the necklace is such a statement, it essentially transforms your entire outfit.)
AB Studio Floral Banded Top
Art All Night Top
Taffy Pull Tunic
Okay, so that last one has some green-ish color in it, but it’s cute, and I edit – so it stays!
Be honest, are you afraid of orange? Do you already wear it? What’s your orange story?
