Criminal Colour? Weekly Wishlist Orange

Everyone and their Aunt have been watching Making A Murderer on Netflix of late, right? It’s been the perfect way to get through the start of January. Guilty or not, we never want to wear that criminal colour of the US, orange. But, in the fashion world, it’s not such a criminal shade!

And this year, America’s criminal colour is actually going to be one of the biggest trends in colour – trust us. So, time to get your orange on – just not overalls, right?!

Our weekly wishlist has plenty of orange items that show off this lovely criminal colour to the best!

We love JOY’s burnt orange dress (£45), agreed? Add an orange stone ring (£2.50, was £8) to top it off. New Look’s vivid orange pointed courts are on our spring ‘absolutely must have’ list (£19.99). JOY’s textured sweatshirt is a lovely lighter orange (£35), and New Look’s snakeskin bag (£19.99) topped off with pom pom is cute  – both of these items can also be found in fab sunshine yellow (see yesterday’s blog post!). New Look’s metal handle shopper is a deeper orange (£17.99), as is Star by Julien Macdonald’s orange clutch (£29, Debenhams).

Weekly wishlist - hot orangeKeep cosy until the warmer weather with BHS’s burnt orange peacoat (£40). New Look’s pyjama style jacket is a spring cover-up (£24.99), as is White Stuff’s edge to edge cardigan (£39.95).

New Balance’s suede 996 trainers looks fab in burnt orange (£39.99, were £70, Schuh). Team them with jeans, and H&M’s orange check shirt (£14.99) for a subtle take on this criminal colour!



Fireworks Fashion

Remember, remember…it’s Bonfire Night! We’re taking inspiration from the flames and the fireworks with some fireworks fashion. And no, we don’t mean exploding clothes, silly. We’re talking fireworks fashion – harnessing all those gorgeous flame shades; yellows, oranges, rusts, and bright, bold reds.

Fireworks fashion is the perfect autumnal fashion colour palette agree? This time of year is a burst of natural colour, with browns, reds, rusts, yellows and oranges taking over from summer greens.

Mix your colours – either in an autumnal print, or in separates, with fireworks fashion themed accessories too.
