Orange is the new black. On the TV show, perhaps, but, in fashion terms, is it really? Er, well, no, of course it’s not. It’s just a VERY clever TV show title, right? And the show’s pretty good. Netflix subscribers, you agree?
But let’s be honest, orange is never going to replace black – that would just be plain bonkers, right? And the proof is here. Every single orange item we have here for your fashion pleasure is in the sale!
Orange could be YOUR new black at a half or a third of the price!
Orange is a great summer shade, so if you have holidays coming up, then how about a gorgeous bold orange lace maxi cover up dress (£15, was £29.99, H&M). Or a frilly H&M orange bikini! Bottoms, £3, were £7.99, and top, £5, was £12.99. Bikini bargain! H&M also have a pair of pale orange sweatshorts (£7, were £9.99) we are in love with.
Add a palm tree print T-shirt (£7, was £10, Debenhams) and a cute orange slice clutch (£6.50, was £12.99, New Look). And we cannot resist the total bargain that French Connection’s sandals are, at £27, down from £90!
Flippy orange skirt (£17, was £24)? Mix and match your oranges – team this New Look skirt with French Connection’s leopard print vest top (£25, was £35), or BHS’s button front sleeveless blouse (£14.40, was £18). Or go for glamour in French Connection’s orange maxi (£48, was £95), or H&M’s bandeau dress (£15, was £29.99). Add killer heels (£29.99, was £45, Schuh), and a cute structured backpack style bag (£12, was £24.99, New Look).
Bright and bold shift dress? Reduced from £100 to £77? Yes please, French Connection! And whilst we’re there, we’ll hae this fab slouchy turtleneck sweater, too! (£35, was £69).
Debenhams‘ Betty Jackson Black cut-out floral bright orange dress (£63.20, was £79)is a statement outfit if we ever saw one. Louche @ JOY’s cut out front detail dress is just £24, instead of £49.

JOY’s cute orange Tee (£25, was £35) is perfect for just a nod to the bold colour.
